"I'm no hostage!" 21-year-old whose family claims she is being held against her will by R. Kelly speaks out, says she is "totally fine"

Explosive new allegations accused singer R. Kelly of operating a sex cult where he keeps young women and controls them. Victims were named, one of them a 21-year-old woman whose family claims she was being held against her will by the R&B singer.

The woman has now come forward to say she is with R.Kelly of her own free will and just does not talk to her family anymore because they are causing problems for her. She dismissed claims that she has been brainwashed by R.Kelly and insisted she was totally fine. Jocelyn Savage spoke out after watching her mother, father, and sister hold a press conference earlier on Monday during which they said R. Kelly held her hostage at a home in Atlanta and they haven't spoken with her in months.

Savage countered the claims made by her family and said she was "in a happy place". She said:

"I'm 21, I'm about to be 22 in a few days and I just mainly want to say that I am in a happy place with my life and I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that. It just came to a point where it definitely has got out of hand. I'm totally fine. I'm happy where I'm at and everything is OK with me."

Asked if she was being held involuntarily, she said: "Oh no, nothing like that. I've never felt like a hostage or anything like that."

Addressing her parents' concern, she said: "I don't really know what's going on with that. I'm very heartbroken over what's going on with this situation because it's getting to a point where it's getting too much. It's just not right."

When she was asked if she is free to come and go from the house, she said she would rather not answer. She also refused to answer when asked if she was still in Atlanta, Georgia and if she was with other roommates.
