American star, R Kelly has denied allegations of sexually abusing women and girls in his first public appearance after being accused.

“I didn’t do this stuff. This isn’t me,” Kelly said. He claims that the allegations against him are just rumours.

“Whether they’re old rumours, new rumours, future rumours, not true,” said Kelly, who became upset at times during the interview.

Kelly, 52,  spent three nights behind bars after his arrest and was released after paying $100,000, 10% of his $1 million bail money.

The crimes are alleged to have occurred between May 1998 and January 2010, according to prosecutors.

In 2002, R Kelly was charged after allegedly filming himself having sex with a 14-year-old girl. He was tried and acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

In a six-part documentary called Surviving R Kelly, the singer was accused of engaging in sexual, mental and physical abuse of girls and women.
