R. Kelly Addresses His Daughter Being A “Transguy”

Earlier this month, R. Kelly’s youngest child announced that they are now transgender. Jaya Kelly, 14, who now goes by the name Jay Kelly, revealed that he is in the process to transitioning to become male.

“[My mom] was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, [lesbian], you name it and I would still love you so much.’ She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mum for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.’ And same with my sister, she told me that she was proud of me, and respects me by calling me handsome and calling me her little brother now, and I love her for that, so you know it was great for me… I believe I am a boy and want surgery, and the medication to help me who I was supposed to be.”

Following his performance at WGCI’s Summer Jam in his hometown, Kellz opened himself up to discuss what is going on in his family. “As far as that’s concern always believe what you see with your own eyes,” he said. “I’ve heard a lot of things about a lot of people that weren’t true.”

With rumors circulating that he had lost his house, R. Kelly also put those back in place. A huge house for a single male was becoming too costly and no longer made sense. “Let’s make some sense out of this, I’m divorced what I need a big ass house for. It became a money furnace,” he explained. “You save money so your kids can go to college no matter what they are and who they are you love them you got to support them. Get rid of that big house knock it down a size and you save that money because at the end of the day its not about me no more its about three lovely kids that i am in love with and they’re in love with me.”

R. Kelly doesn’t aim to clarify or delve deeper into whether Jay Kelly is undergoing the transition but will let the world decide for themselves if they are to see it with their own eyes. Watch the full interview on the following page.
