R Kelly: I am Not Lucifer Says R Kelly

Iconic R&B singer-songwriter R. Kelly pushed back against aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges in an interview Wednesday, calling his multiple accusers liars who've painted him to look like the devil and a monster.

"They was describing Lucifer. I'm not Lucifer. I'm a man. I make mistakes, but I'm not a devil, and by no means am I a monster," Kelly told "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King in an interview that aired Wednesday morning.

Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse by Chicago prosecutors last month, CBS News reported.

In "Surviving R. Kelly," a six-part Lifetime documentary, filmmakers interviewed more than 50 people, including the singer's ex-wife, numerous women, their family members and his former tour manager who all claimed R. Kelly abused them.

"Are you saying everybody in that documentary was not telling the truth about you? Everybody?" King asked.

"They are lying on me," Kelly said.

"Why would these women say the same thing about you? That you are controlling, that you are abusive, that you tell women when to eat, when to go to the bathroom, when they can sleep, where they can dress?" King pressed. "Why would all these women tell these different stories about you if they were not true and they don't know each other? That defies logic to me."
