A Patreon page allegedly belonging to R. Kellys longtime girlfriend Joycelyn Savage was taken down Tuesday after the crowdfunding site said it was unable to confirm the account holders identity.
Speaking with TMZ, a source at Patreon stated that it gave the account numerous days to confirm that it was actually being run by Savage but never received confirmation. The spokesperson told TMZ that the site decided to deletethe account over potential impersonation issues.
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, the spokesperson said. All patrons who signed up for the membership page were refunded and the creator did not receive any funds.
More than 1,800 people allegedly paid to see Savages posts, according to TMZ.
The account was only just revealed earlier this week on an Instagram page also allegedly run by Savage, who, despite previously defending Kelly against allegations of sexual abuse, has now reportedly vowed to further expose the disgraced R&B singer.
A post on the Instagram page specifically stated that daily stories would be posted to Patreon, even though Savage had allegedly been forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) while living with Kelly.
