Disturbing images shared exclusively with DailyMail.com reveal two of R Kelly’s ‘brainwashed’ victims being monitored by a female minder and disguising their identities with baseball caps, scarves and sunglasses.
The images, confirmed as Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary by a source, were captured on a public street in last summer before they entered a hair salon.
Savage and Clary have reportedly hired lawyers to prevent their parents from extricating them from the RnB star’s house.
A source, who is an associate of R Kelly, told DailyMail.com that the young women spent two hours inside and that their behavior was ‘weird’.
The pair were swamped in oversized, baggy clothes on an 80F day. Another alleged victim, Jerhonda Pace, has previously said that R Kelly dictates strict rules to his alleged cult on wearing oversized clothes to cover their bodies.
The source told DailyMail.com: ‘The girls had a ”look-out” with them, an older woman who was keeping an eye on their behavior and what they were talking about. She was dressed differently, came and went freely and spoke in fluent Spanish.’

R Kelly is facing disturbing allegations of pedophilia, rape and abuse in the wake of a Lifetime docuseries that features multiple women claiming he enslaves women
Joycelyn went by the name ‘Jay’ and froze when her real name was used. They seemed excited to be out in public, the source said.
The insider also said that the young women referred to R Kelly as ‘daddy’.
Despite having her hair glamorously styled, Joycelyn asked for her hair to be wrapped up in scarves. After she left, she wore a baseball hat and large sunglasses to remain incognito.
The source said that both Savage and Clary were deeply concerned with concealing their identities when they went out in public.
DailyMail.com contacted the salon owner who declined to comment and asked not to be named.
Last Tuesday, an alleged victim of Kelly and the families of two other alleged victims were reportedly preparing to go to Chicago prosecutors with ‘sufficient evidence’ of sexual abuse and other crimes, reported.
State Attorney Kim Foxx said that she was ‘sickened’ by the Lifetime docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, where multiple women claimed the singer is a pedophile who allegedly rapes, beats and enslaves women.
Foxx asked anyone who was a victim or has information about a victim to come forward.
There are still no criminal charges against Kelly at this time, and no investigation has been launched as of yet into the singer.
TMZ reported that Clary and Savage have hired lawyers to stop their parents intervening between them and the singer, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly.

Timothy Savage (above with his wife Jonjelyn) was interviewed for the Lifetime series Surviving R Kelly and alleged that the singer was holding his daughter captive. They believe she has been brainwashed by R Kelly and are concerned for her safety
Savage’s parents, Timothy and Jonjelyn, believe that she has been brainwashed by R Kelly and are concerned for her safety, having not seen their daughter in more than a year.
Azriel Clary’s mother, Alice, told that she hasn’t spoken to her daughter in four years and believes she is in an ‘abusive, cult-like’ relationship with Kelly.
On Friday, Gerald Griggs, who is representing Timothy, demanded that R KellyBest Private University for me.’
Joann’s mother Andrea, who participated in the Lifetime series, filed a restraining order against her ex in 2005 following an altercation.
One year later she filed for divorce, and in 2009 the split was finalized, at which point she claims Kelly chose not to be a part of his children’s lives.
She explained that it ‘has been years’ since she or her siblings had any contact with the singer, and that they and her mother Andrea ‘would never condone, support or be a part of anything negative that [Kelly] does’.
At the end of her message, she thanked people who have supported her family.
Kelly’s daughter Joann Kelly made her first statement since the allegations gained national attention, writing: ‘The same monster you all confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house’

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Kelly’s manager threatened to ruin Joycelyn Savage’s father and his family in a series of harassing texts and phone calls after learning he had participated in the Lifetime series.
Don Russell texted and called Timothy Savage to say it ‘would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air,’ according to a police report in Georgia.
Russell later said that he and Kelly might have to release information that would destroy Savage, his family and his business.
Savage, and his wife Jonjelyn, have been trying for years to reach their daughter, Joycelyn, who ran off with Kelly shortly after meeting him backstage at a concert when she was 17.
The report, first obtained by CBS 46, states that Savage called police shortly after 5am on the day of the incident.
The responding officer then arrived at the house before 5.45am, which is when Russell called Savage on the phone.
Savage was then able to put the phone on speaker so that the officer could hear everything that was being said by Russell.
‘Don says several times that Timothy is providing Lifetime with false information, and that is he continues supporting the documentary that they (R Kelly / Don) would be forced to release information disproving Don,’ reads the report.
‘Don advised Timothy that the information would ruin him, his reputation, business and family, because it would show him a liar.’
This is actually the second time one of the singer’s managers has threatened Savage, who previously filed a police report against James Mason.
There is now an outstanding warrant for Mason after he failed to respond to police when they asked to question him about the ‘threats’ he made to Savage.
Joycelyn Savage, 21, came forward to say she was ‘totally fine’ despite her family’s claims she was being held against her will by R. Kelly

The Savages first spoke out in an interview with BuzzFeed in 2017 which alleged that Kelly had been holding a handful of young women in cult like conditions and effectively treating them as his sexual slaves for years.
Some former members of his entourage vouched for their concern. Three separate women said they were all forced to subscribe to his rules.
They said they were told when to eat, bathe, sleep and had to perform sexual acts on one another which the singer then recorded.
Savage’s mother recalled how she was present when her daughter, an aspiring musician, met Kelly after being invited backstage at a concert in 2015.
In her BuzzFeed interview, Jonjelyn said she thought it would be ‘fine’ for her daughter to spend time with the star if she was there to watch over her.
It’s not clear exactly when Joycelyn went to live with Kelly but her family say they have not seen her since December 2016. ‘It was as if she was brainwashed. [She] looked like a prisoner — it was horrible,’ her mother said.
Joycelyn’s father Timothy believes she is suffering Stockholm Syndrome, a condition which sees hostages grow to love their captors.
The family contacted police after their daughter fled to live with the singer and told officers that he was running a ‘cult’.
Police visited the home in Atlanta where Joycelyn was believed to be living but it was empty.
They then tracked her down in Chicago but she said she was fine and wanted to be left alone by her family.
Cheryl Mack, Kitti Jones, and Asante McGee – all former members of Kelly’s entourage – described in detail the sort of treatment endured by young women who find themselves pulled into the singer’s orbit.
A representative for Kelly spoke out at the time about the claims, saying the singer ‘unequivocally denies’ them and said he will ‘work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and to clear his name’
A representative for Kelly spoke out at the time about the claims, saying the singer ‘unequivocally denies’ them and said he will ‘work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and to clear his name’.
Earlier, Mack, Jones, and McGee said there are at least six women living in properties rented by the R&B star in Chicago and Atlanta. The ‘guest houses’ where the women are kept are near his home in suburban Atlanta, and his apartment at Trump Tower in Chicago.
‘You have to ask for food. You have to ask to go use the bathroom… [Kelly] is a master at mind control… He is a puppet master,’ Mack, who worked as the singer’s assistant, told the website.
The women, who said the ‘babies’ – as the girls are referred to – are required to call Kelly ‘Daddy’, then ran through a list of people they believe were living either at one of the performer’s properties in Atlanta or his Chicago recording studio last summer.
The first woman mentioned in the article was a 31-year-old ‘den mother’, who is reportedly responsible for ‘training newcomers on how Kelly liked to be pleasured sexually’.
The ‘den mother’ ‘had been best friends since high school’ with the person who was allegedly in the videotape that led to Kelly standing trial on child pornography charges in 2008.
Mack said many of the young women are sucked in by the singer because they think: ‘This is R. Kelly, I’m going to live a lavish lifestyle’.
In addition to the aforementioned control Kelly has, he allegedly demands the women ask his permission before leaving a room, are forced to wear jogging suits in public in order to keep their figures hidden, have their phones taken and are given new ones that are only allowed to be used to contact him or others approved by him, and have to deal with a ‘burly’ SUV driver parked outside his properties.
Both Mack and Jones said that if any of the women break the ‘rules’, Kelly ‘punishes them physically and verbally’. Jones recounted a time she angered Kelly by ‘being too friendly’ with the male cashier.
‘I got trapped. I had people telling me I was an idiot. But it took me a long time to realize they were right, and I’m talking now because I hope I can help some of these other girls,’ said Jones.
McGee added: ‘R. Kelly is the sweetest person you will ever want to meet. But Robert is the devil.’
