AceShowbiz - Azriel Clary is feeling better than ever since her split from incarcerated boyfriend R. Kelly. The 22-year-old has reunited with her family after years of estrangement and shared on Instagram several photos from their heartwarming reunion.
In the Monday, January 13 photos, Azriel was all smiles as she posed with her family in matching white T-shirts and jeans. In one photo, she had her hands on both of her parents, while another photo showed the girl sweetly embracing her little brother. "Surprise," she wrote in the caption. "Let the healing process begin. Love y'all and thank y'all I even thank everyone who follows me.. because you all believed in me when I could not believe for myself."
Making her split from Kelly even clearer, she added a hashtag that read, "Moving on to better days."
Reports stated that Azriel reunited with her family last week, when she accompanied Joycelyn Savage to a court appearance in Chicago following their blowout fight. She then subsequently decided to return to the family home that she left at the age of 17 to move in with the disgraced singer.
Her mother, Alice Clary, confirmed the story as saying, "The battle is won because she's still here, she's still alive, she's still breathing, and though she lost a few years of her life, she's still here to tell her story... The victory is won because she finally came to her sense. People don't understand she's hurt. This man lied to her for years, and she was doing what she thought a good girlfriend would do because that's what she thought she was."
Following their reunion, TMZ reported that her family is now searching for qualified counselors and therapists to help her recover mentally. According to the publication, Azriel now feels "she was brainwashed, manipulated and mistreated" by Kelly.
