Co-host Mero brought up King’s March interview with Kelly who claimed that his accusers in the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” were “lying” about their stories. During the CBS interview, the singer stood up and yelled down at King, who remained super calm.

“You are an unflappable master interviewer,” Mero told King. “You had R. Kelly wildin’ the f*ck out. Like screaming, going bonkers.”

Desus asked,

“What was that experience like?” King responded, “No one’s done that to me. I never thought that he was gonna hurt me, guys. But when he was doing this,” she said, miming a punching motion, “I thought he might accidentally hurt me. And I was worried about that. Because you could tell, he could hit hard.” She also revealed that Kelly kept spitting while he was yelling and “it was flying all over the place.” She said ”his spit fell on my lip…right here.”

Gayle continued,

“I really think that we were watching him having a breakdown in real time,” she continued. “I really do. Somebody said, ‘Oh, Gayle. He played you. He was just faking.’ I do not think that was a fake. I don’t.”
