The R Kelly saga continues as alleged fiancé, Joycelyn Savage, will reportedly release a “tell all” book about the pair’s relationship this Saturday (August 13).

Savage is reported to have written the book, entitled Love and Joy of Robert.

The contents are said to detail her life in the shadows of the disgraced American singer and where the pair are now in their relationship.

In an email to the New York Post, Savage refused to answer questions surrounding her relationship status with Kelly.

Instead, she said “everything will be answered in my book.”

Savage sent social media into a frenzy back in June when she pleaded for a lesser sentence in letter allegedly written by her.

In the letter she referred to herself as Kelly’s fiancé. But, Savage has not officially confirmed the change in her relationship status.

Kelly was sentenced to 30 years on federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges in June.

His sentence follows multiple reports that the singer used his famous status to target girls and young women for his own sexual gratification.

In the letter, Savage shut down rumours that she was a victim, stating that she is in a loving relationship with the 55-year-old.

“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,” she continued, describing her relationship with Kelly as “amazing” and claiming that he is the “best thing that’s ever happened to me”.
