R. Kelly Walks Off HuffPost Live Set After Warning Host About Negative Questions: ‘F**k That This Interview Is Over’

| December 21, 2015 | 0 Comments


In what could easily be the most bizarre interview of 2015 the king of R&B R. Kelly walks right out of an interview with the Huffington Post interview after accusing the host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani of interrogating him and being overly negative.

The host opened up the forum for fans to ask questions via Twitter and after being tossed a few softballs, Kelly was prompted by the host about the low sales of The Buffet. Soon enough, questions about Kelly’s history of alleged sexual relationships with underage girls and the conflict fans feel when trying to balance being a fan of his music and the fact that he has been accused of heinous acts started to pour in.

Once put on the hot seat Kelly warn the host that the questions were getting too negative and felt like an interrogation. He told the host to pull back or he will walk to MCDonald’s where he will enjoy a MCRib sandwich and fly back to Chicago.

“What I’m gonna tell you is that I am going to sit here and talk to you like the beautiful woman you are and I’m going to talk to you with respect,” he said. “And I’m going to let you know that any other negative things that come out of your mouth, I’m gonna get up and I’m gonna walk out and I’m gonna go to McDonald’s, hopefully the McRib is out. Then I’m gonna go to Chicago, play some basketball, go to the studio and work on my next album.”


Around the 11-minute mark, in an attempt to deflect the questions and turn things around, Kelly began to attempt to focus the conversation on his success, citing that all his fans continue to come to his concerts. He then checked Modarressy-Tehrani for trying to get a juicy answer out of him so she could make headlines.

The host then asked Kelly about his sultry lyrics and relationship with sex to which he responded, “I did not come here to get interrogated. I didn’t come here for a deposition….This sounds sort of like a deposition…This is not about R. Kelly, this is not about music, this is not about someone who works hard on his music who has an album out. This is about trying to interrogate me and this is about disrespect.”

When asked how he would respond to fans who are hesitant to support the album due to his controversial history, Kelly’s message was simple: “F**k that.”

“You can’t satisfy everybody,” he continued. “I will continue to do my job until I get fired, and the only people who can fire me are my fans.”

Shortly thereafter, R. Kelly ended the interview, told the host she was beautiful and left the set.
