TMZ has reported that two of R. Kelly’s girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, have allegedly been raising money to help with the singer’s legal defense. Sources close to the girlfriends said that they are working to hire Thomas Mesereau, Micheal Jackson’s former attorney. 

The women have also been trying to land a book deal with hopes that they can use those earnings to support Kelly. Sources said that both women have hired representatives to secure paid interviews with media outlets. 

It is unclear if Savage or Clary have had success in their fundraising efforts.
