If “I’m gone stick beside him” was a person.
Joycelyn Savageis riding out with the Pied Piper until the wheels fall off.
Before R. Kelly was sentenced to 30 years for federal sex crimes, Kelly’s girlfriend Joycelyn Savage wrote a letter to the judge to request a lenient sentence. In the June 13th letter, Joycelyn revealed she and the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer are engaged.
”My name is Joycelyn Savage, and I’m Robert Kelly’s fiancé,” she wrote. “I’m writing this letter in support of Robert in advance of his sentencing, so I can explain to the court that I’m not the victim that the government has portrayed me to be.”
No mention of when the engagement went down. In the letter, Joycelyn - who was arrested in 2020 for fighting Kelly's victim Azriel Clary - told the judge Robert Kelly isn’t the monster the government has portrayed him to be and that he has been nothing short of amazing.
”My relationship with Robert is amazing. He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me," the 26-year-old wrote. "We have a very special connection and are deeply in love. I still support Robert to this day because I love him and will always be here to support him."
She said the 55-year-old singer makes sure she’s well taken care of and that he always makes sure his women are cared for. The rumors that he mistreats women are just that - rumors - according to her.
”He’s very determined and focused on his goals, and the things that have been said about him, with me and other women being held against our will is absolutely untrue. It’s the complete opposite of who he is and what my relationship is like with Robert.”
”Robert and I are deeply in love and it breaks my heart that the government has created a narrative that I’m a victim. I’m a grown woman, and can speak for myself which is why I wanted to provide this letter to the court,” she wrote.
She said R. Kelly is a “great man” and should be “home with his loved ones who are ready to support him.”

Joycelyn’s family calls BS on the engagement. The Savage Family attorney - Gerald Griggs - told TMZ she never told them about her engagement and they've never even spoken about the possibility beforehand. The site reports:
Griggs tells us he finds it odd Savage didn't testify about it under oath, and instead slipped it into the letter submitted to the court. Savage's family "strongly doubts" the engagement story ... and are wishing to reconnect with her to get the full story.
They do admit it isn't unusual she wouldn't make it known to her parents -- Griggs says she hasn't really spoken to them since she left to be with Kelly.
You'll recall, Joycelyn's parents previously spoke out, accusing Kelly of kidnapping and brainwashing their daughter.
Also, R. Kelly is reportedly no longer on suicide watch. The filing came in response to a claim last week by Kelly’s attorneys that the 55-year-old Kelly was placed on suicide watch as a form of punishment last week after a judge sentenced him to 30 years behind bars for using his fame to sexually exploit women and girls.
We’re at a lost for words on this one. We just hope Joycelyn eventually comes to her senses because this ain’t it.
