CNN also reported that court documents show Kelly owed more than $169,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, as of February 6.

The 52-year-old R&B singer was taken into custody after Wednesday's hearing for failing to pay ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, more than $161,000 in back child support by today's court-mandated deadline. The court ordered Kelly to make a monthly payment of $20,833 on January 8, 2009, but Kelly did not show up to that hearing, according to CNN. Savage agreed, adding, "Everything that she says is true. I just kept thinking "Okay, Robert, go ahead" and that's what I said". "All of the victims and parents can not be lying", Alice and Angelo Clary added.

In response, the Savages denied they've received payments and challenged Kelly to prove that they did, saying, "In fact, we've asked Mr. Kelly several times to produce receipts of such transaction".

Savage's mother said during a Wednesday news conference that "what I saw on TV this morning about the way he acted when he got upset, I don't imagine what he does behind closed doors when he is not on camera". PEOPLE was unable to immediately reach Johnson for comment.

"At points during the conversation he would cough really loudly like that", King said, mimicking his cough. "And if you can't see that, you're ignorant and you're stupid". "I'm not Lucifer", Kelly said.

The operations will be transferred to Shared Health over the next two years to run as an addictions and mental health program. Provincial experts say this will help better plan things like how many knee surgeries will be needed across the province.

Joycelyn Savage, 23, and Azriel Clary, 21, sat down with Gayle King for a CBS This Morning segment to refute allegations made by their parents that they are being abused and brainwashed by Kelly.

When King probed if it was a "three-way sexual relationship", Clary angrily shot back that it was none of her business.

"At no point did this family sell their daughter to anyone or provide their daughter for anything for money", attorney Gerald Griggs said Wednesday during a news conference. He said Kelly did not have the whole amount because he has not been able to work.

Kelly said those lies include that he's holding women against their will and that he has a "cult". His defense attorney said at the time that Kelly's finances were "a mess". The charges say Kelly used force or the threat of force.

Kelly - who last month pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse - increasingly lost control over his emotions during an interview this week with Gayle King.

Jurors acquitted Kelly in 2008 of child pornography charges stemming from a video prosecutors alleged showed Kelly having sex with a girl as young as 13.
