Still good over there, Joycelyn Savage???
We were rooting real hard for R. Kelly’s former girlfriend when she allegedly started to use a Patreon campaign to spill all the tea about her relationship with the now-jailed singer.
Well, it appears there’s a bit of a problem: the account is now SHUT DOWN, because the website wasn’t able to prove the person behind the pay account was actually Joycelyn!
A source at Patreon told TMZ that the site tried to verify the account on Monday, but to no avail. While the insider initially told the outlet the person behind the account will have a couple of days to prove they’re the real Joycelyn, Patreon apparently pushed up that deadline and has already removed the page due to “potential impersonation.”

A spokesperson for the company told the site:
"After multiple unsuccessful attempts to verify the identity of the account holder, we closed the Patreon page allegedly associated with Joycelyn Savage due to potential impersonation. All patrons who signed up for the membership page were refunded and the creator did not receive any funds."
Again, we say… wait, WHAT!?
Despite the posts being shared on Joycelyn’s Instagram page, there was some doubt that Savage was really the person behind the account, which accused Kelly of physical abuse and forced abortions, seeing as the 24-year-old was so adamant in defending the Grammy winner over the past few months.
Still, it was easy to understand why Joycelyn would suddenly turn on the accused rapist now that he’s in jail. As we reported, one post read:
"I realized I was pregnant by this monster … Eventually, I ended up getting an abortion I was forced to get the surgery done at his house."
Another post claimed Joycelyn was forced to address Kelly only as "daddy" or "master”; the one time she called him “babe,” the post alleges, the singer choked her out for not addressing him properly.
Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg seems to think Joycelyn was behind the account. He said in a statement:
"It is unfortunate that Jocelyn now seeks to make money by exploiting her long time, loving relationship with Robert."
Per the source, the user behind the account would’ve had to provide a government-issued form of identification to satisfy the site.
Do U think Joycelyn backed out of her campaign, or was it an imposter the whole time??
