Famous singer R. Kelly is not yet ready to open up about his daughter. Apparently, the star was recently asked about the choice that the young girl has made.
Jaya, who is only 14 years old, came out as transgender and decided to change her name to Jay. R. Kelly has chosen to remain silent about this choice, but he was recently asked about his son Jay. The subject was taken to discussion during an interview that R Kelly recently gave.
“You don’t really wanna open it by saying my daughter is becoming my son,” R Kelly said. “Don’t even give the blogs that kind of credit,” he added. This means that what R. Kelly wanted to share is the fact that the news on his daughter’s decision is not actually true and it is all a rumor.
“Always believe what you see with your own eyes,” the singer said. “Always believe what you see. That’s the best way to go about this business. I’ve heard a lot of things about a lot of people. It was never true,” the star explained. Naturally, this answer was actually interpreted as R. Kelly claiming that Jaya is not actually becoming Jay.
The star was also asked about his decision to sell his house. He claimed that he chose to do so, to be able to save more money. He explained that you save money for your kids, as you want to offer them what is best. Probably, this is what R. Kelly wants for his three children, as well.
“They’re still your kids; you love ‘em, you gotta support them… At the end of the day, it’s not about me no more. It’s about three lovely, lovely kids that I’m in love with and that’s in love with me,” he said.
Jaya made the announcement that she is a transgender on her Facebook, earlier this month. She claimed that she had identified herself as a male since the age of six. Jaya also added that she wants surgery to become a boy.
R. Kelly has three children with his former wife, Andrea. Until this point, Kelly’s rep made no official statements on this subject.
