R. Kelly's love life has taken a bizarre turn — he is engaged to Joycelyn Savage, one of his alleged victims, according to her court filing.
Last month, Joycelyn penned a letter to Judge Ann Donnelly pleading for a lenient sentence for the disgraced R&B singer.
"My name is Joycelyn Savage, and I'm Robert Kelly's fiancé," she wrote in her letter, which was obtained by TMZ and Page Six. "I'm writing this letter in support of Robert in advance of his sentencing, so I can explain to the court that I'm not the victim that the government has portrayed me to be."
On June 29, the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison, stemming from his 2021 conviction on nine federal charges including racketeering and human trafficking.
Joycelyn, who was one of Kelly's two live-in girlfriends, argued that the convicted sex trafficker is an "all-around incredible person" who helps people in need.
"Robert is not the monster that the government has described him to be," she said. "The Robert I know is very sweet, gentle, and kind. At the end of the day, he has always made sure that I'm taken care of, and any other women he was with as well."
Joycelyn's parents, who question the validity of the engagement, have argued in the past that she was being held "hostage," which she and Kelly denied.
"Robert and I are deeply in love and it breaks my heart that the government has created a narrative that I'm a victim," she added. "I'm a grown woman, and can speak for myself which is why I wanted to provide this letter to the court."
