Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, the reported girlfriends of embattled singer R. Kelly, were booted from their digs in the Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago after the singer was arrested and his property was seized by federal officials.

According to the Blast, Kelly (born Robert Kelly) was walking his dog when dem boys ran up on him and took him into custody. The doors to Kelly’s Trump Tower apartment were immediately locked by federal officials and the women were told to find other arrangements.


Joycelyn Savage’s family has desperately been trying to reconnect with their daughter, who they believe has been brainwashed by the R&B crooner. “Joycelyn’s father, Timothy, even confronted Kelly’s publicist during a press conference,” the Blast reports.

From the Blast:

Gerald Griggs, attorney for the Savage family, tells The Blast that Joycelyn’s mother, Jonjelyn, has discovered where her daughter is staying and is currently working on keeping “consistent contact” while trying to arrange a meeting.

We’re told the Savage family is “ready to reunite” with their daughter and let “whatever happened in the past” to be over.

Griggs tells us the family already has counselors and professionals on hand to help Joycelyn transition back into normal life, and help the healing process begin.

As we’ve reported, Joycelyn has been involved with Kelly for years, and the family alleges he has been brainwashing her since when she was an aspiring singer.

For what it’s worth, Joycelyn swears that she is choosing to be with the Trapped in the Closest, Parts 1-174 singer of her own free will. She even defended the singer during his hilarious interview with Gayle King that has now become my go-to gif whenever I want to note that someone is “killing me with this shit!”


There has been no word on where the women are living now or whether Savage has any plans to meet with her family.
