Kelly are defending the R&B singer, who faces allegations of sexually assaulting teenage girls.
In a tearful interview broadcast on Thursday, Azriel Clary and Joycelyn Savage (aged 21 and 23, respectively) accused their own parents of trying to extort money from the performer.
Though Kelly denies reports, the press uncovered a marriage certificate.
The marriage was reportedly annulled, but Kelly continues to deny their nuptials - claiming they were close friends.
She also said her parents had threatened to leak naked photos of her unless Kelly sent them tens of thousands of dollars.
