Joycelyn Savage’s Family “Strongly Doubts” She’s Engaged To R. Kelly

Even from behind bars, “Ignition” singer R. Kelly is continuing to cause a stir in the media. Earlier today (July 11) it was revealed that the disgraced R&B legend reportedly got engaged to one of his victims, Joycelyn Savage, ahead of his recent sentencing.

“My relationship with Robert is amazing. He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. We have a very special connection and are deeply in love,” the 26-year-old wrote to the judge hoping to get some leniency for Kelly, who she also described as her “fiancé.”

“I still support Robert to this day because I love him and will always be here to support him,” Savage told the judge. “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.”

Despite the woman’s claims of engagement, though, the latest update from TMZ reveals that her family was never made aware of any such thing.
