Gayle King is being praised for keeping her composure as R. Kelly seems to lose his temper during his first interview since the rapper was charged with aggravated sexual abuse.

In pictures Ms. King posted of the upcoming CBS interview on Instagram, the RB singer is seen standing over her, appearing to yell at the reporter.

“rkelly sits down for first intvu since @survivingrkelly doc let’s just say he has lots to discuss tomorrow...,” Ms. King posted.

The full interview will be released on Wednesday and Thursday.

The journalist is getting praise online due to looking calm and composed as someone holds back Mr. Kelly.

“In the face of my worst enemies, I aspire to keep a composure like Gayle King’s,” Antonella Morales tweeted.

In his first interview since being charged, Mr. Kelly said through tears that “he didn’t do this stuff” and added that he is “fighting for his f---ing life” in clips released.

The singer was bailed out of jail in February after being arrested and charged with aggravated sexual abuse against four people, including three underaged girls. He has pleaded not guilty.
