R. Kelly’s fiancée Joycelyn Savage claims she’s pregnant, one of several bombshell revelations in her shocking new book “Love and Joy of Robert.”
The 26-year-old mother-to-be writes in her tiny tell-all — only 11 pages and out Friday on Amazon — that she found out she was expecting months after disgraced R&B singer-songwriter Robert Sylvester Kelly sent an engagement ring to her home, the day after he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for racketeering and sex trafficking.
“Months later, I began expecting severe morning sickness and was unsure what was wrong with my body. I thought I had contracted COVID-19, but the most amazing news of all was that I was expecting,” Savage writes in the book.
“It was a happy day but an incomplete time in my life. Today I am grateful to God for giving me the most precious gift. Robert is extremely excited about the news that I am having a baby and feels sad that Robert will not be able to be here with us.”
Savage told The Post a photograph of the ultrasound was the only image Kelly would clear for publication in the new exposé.
“Yes, Robert approved the book and his team has read it through. I wanted pictures of us at concerts, at his house, and lying down together. I told them I wanted exactly what happened,” she said. “However, there were moments I didn’t include in this book because I wanted to have a happy ending and story with Robert. I live in one of Robert’s condos and am working on my next book, which will reveal a lot about him that has been tampered by the media. Many secrets.”
The Post has contacted reps for Kelly for comment. It remains unclear how far along Savage is in the pregnancy.
Savage also told The Post that there will be a second volume of her memoir released next year — and she’s still “hoping for him to be released and prepare for new beginnings.”
The short, yet jaw-dropping read is Savage’s version of the events leading to her living with the troubled R&B singer. She wrote that life prior to meeting Kelly at 19 years old was emotionally and mentally draining, and alleged that “family members” touched her.
“Family members touching you despite knowing you were aware of the situation felt as if it was okay for them to do so,” Savage wrote. “It felt normal to me that I was unable to voice my feelings to my parents when all they did was ignore my pain.”
Savage’s parents, Jonjelyn and Timothy, have been publicly pleading for their daughter to leave Kelly. They were interviewed in-depth in the six-part tell-all series “Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning” in 2020.
An attorney for the Savage parents told The Post that they have no comment at this time.
In the book, Savage recalls the night she went to Kelly’s concert at 19 years old. She writes that she was “eager to catch Robert’s attention” and be one of the girls that got backstage. She did, and recalls Kelly “putting his hand on my hip, gripping my butt and calling me beautiful and various flattering names.”
She sang for him that night, and said Kelly brought her to recording studio after the show where “all his friends constantly told him ‘I think you found the next Aaliyah.’”
Savage said Kelly asked her to live with him in Atlanta so he could help with her music career.
“It was a very curious moment for me at the time, but I was cautious nonetheless,” she wrote.
“My answer was ‘yes, but I’m still in college.’ He responded, ‘Daddy has everything you need right here.’ He pulled out a stack of cash. I wasn’t concerned about the money at the time; I just wanted to improve my music,” she wrote.
“I was always persuaded by him with money, saying I should not leave because this is an opportunity that no one else will ever have and I [sic] leave I’ll regret it.”
Savage said she was concerned about missing her college classes, but Kelly convinced her to stay in his guesthouse for three days and write music.
She recalled the time Kelly brought her regular and “very sexy and grown up” outfits to wear since she didn’t have many clothes with her.
“I had no clue why he brought me these whory [sic] outfits, until his assistant informed me that Robert wanted me to wear it for some occasion, which was a Spandex and a see-through bra,” Savage said.
“I didn’t question it, thinking perhaps he wanted me to look cute,” she added.
She claimed that Kelly came into her room that night, sat on her bed and asked “Who’s [sic] Daddy?” and she said “you.”
“And he replied ‘good girl,’” Savage wrote.
She said “kinky” sexual acts followed, which became a nightly routine for the two. Savage said she became “used to it” although one act made her feel “compelled to vomit, but I didn’t.”
“It turned me off, but he bought whatever I wanted if I did that for him,” she explained.
She also revealed the comparisons to Kelly’s first wife, the late Aaliyah, didn’t stop, either.
“As much as he wanted me to become his Aaliyah, he was afraid of losing me, which led to him become extremely demanding, obsessive over me, and [unable] to let me leave his sight at all,” Savage said.
“Robert started to call me ‘his sexy little Aaliyah’ or sometimes just ‘Aaliyah’ but I would have to remind him that I’m Joy,” she wrote.
Savage also claimed Kelly’s team was paid very well and signed NDAs to not speak bad about him or reveal any hidden secrets.
She began touring with Kelly, and said that the girls who would get backstage at his shows were “strangely young.”
“I couldn’t say much about it,” she wrote.
Another younger girl joined Kelly and Savage on tour, and Savage said Kelly had the girls “get nasty” with each other, and would also record the two girls doing things with him.
“After living with Robert for a few months, I didn’t like him for what he turned into, but me and the other girl became closer over time, and I promise to always be there for each other no matter what the scenario, well I thought,” Savage revealed.
She said the other girl “became bi-polar” while living under Kelly’s roof and missed her family terribly. Even when he was sent to jail, Kelly allegedly did not want the girls to split up and live on their own.
Savage said they received daily media training in case they were ever asked to speak about Kelly.
The other girl was eventually released back to her family, and “smeared my name all over social media,” Savage wrote.
