R. Kelly's girlfriend Azriel Clary has seen the light.
According to TMZ, the 22-year-old has come to the realization that Kelly "played mind games and manipulated her since she moved out of his Trump Tower condo and reconnected with her family."
A source told the outlet that she now wants to help law enforcement with its investigation into Kelly, who is currently behind bars after being charged with 18+ counts of sexual misconduct and other charges, but is scared of telling her truth because she's lied to federal agents several times in the past. The insider added, she fears she could be in big trouble if she changes her story and tells the feds what really went down between her Kelly and his other girlfriend Joycelyn Savage.
Another hang-up in her coming forward is the fact that she also signed an NDA with the disgraced singer, which she fears would result in further legal repercussions, the source said.
Azriel hinted at her awakening on Twitter Thursday (January 9), tweeting, "I just want people to embrace me, love me and forgive me because I’m young.. and I just didn’t know. Please do not crucify me for not being knowledgeable. 🙏🏿🦋"
"No one ever wakes up and says 'today I’m going to be manipulated, or taken advantage of, or kidnapped'.. those are things you just cannot control," she continued. "I never thought me and victim would ever be in the same sentence because I was too in denial.. but once you realize, your realize."
She also posted two smiling photos of herself sitting in front of a fireplace "after having White Castles" with her dad. The reunion was a long time coming given that both her family and Joycelyn's family claimed Kelly stopped the ladies from visiting them for years.
