CHICAGO, ILLINOIS - JUNE 26: R&B singer R. Kelly leaves the Leighton Criminal Courts Building following a hearing on June 26, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. Prosecutors turned over to Kelly's defense team a DVD that alleges to show Kelly having sex with an underage girl in the 1990s. Kelly has been charged with multiple sex crimes involving four women, three of whom were underage at the time of the alleged encounters.

Azriel Clary, former girlfriend of R. Kelly, who was 17 at the time she left her parents to  live with him, is ready to hit the stand in order to testify against him, despite the harassment she’s been getting.

Angelo Clary, Azriel’s father, told TMZ that no one is forcing her to testify and, “her decision is based on her belief that what Kelly did to her and others is wrong, and she wants to do it for the sake of justice and to show what a monster he truly is.”

However, die-hard Kelly fans are upset with Azriel and have been constantly harassing her. The outlet was told that Azriel and her family are targets of online threats and attacks including people posting their private information such as their contact info and workplaces. Azriel’s car was set on fire last year, and just months ago a man pled guilty in the case, the outlet reported. Despite the harassment, Angelo is certain that his daughter will not back down.

As of now, it looks like Azriel will testify in court sometime next week, and when she does Angelo says he’ll be in the courtroom to support her, per TMZ.
