R.Kelly's Daughter Comes Out As Transgender

States media is in a frenzy over news that raunchy R&B singer R. Kelly's teenage daughter has announced that she is actually a he. The 13-year-old teenager made an announcement on his Facebook.com page, describing himself as a “transguy,” who is now going by the name Jay Kelly.

In a question and answer session on website Ask.fm, Kelly explained that he has identified as a male since he was “6 or 7″ years old, and says his mother Andrea Kelly, the singer’s ex-wife and star of the reality series “Hollywood Exes,” has been extremely supportive of his life-changing transition.

He wrote, 
“My mom was like, ‘Baby, you know I love you if you were bi, gay, lesbian, you name it and I would still love you so much.’ She was very proud of me, I was like, ‘Thank you mom for accepting the fact that I’m a transgender.’”
He also added that he is eager to undergo the necessary operations to fully become a male so he can be comfortable in his own skin.


From a very young age he knew he did not want to be a girl, wear dresses, grow his hair long or have breasts or female sexual organs, he explained on Ask.fm.
Aged 11, 'I would look up like boy changes to girl, and girl changes to boy, and im like wow, theres people who feel EXACTLY the way i feel and then i knew like thats what transgender is,' he wrote.
He added that he was about six when he knew he was attracted to girls - but he has no plans to date any just yet, adding: 'I've got a lot on my plate right now.'

Kelly added, 
“I believe I am a boy and want surgery, and the medication to help me (be) who I was supposed to be.”
His father, Trapped In The Closet crooner RKelly, has yet to publicly comment on the teen’s recent announcement but there are already reports that he does not support him after Jay commented; 
'I absolutely love my mother... and yea my dad has not reached out.'
R. Kelly divorced Jay's mother, who had been his former backup dancer, in 2009 after almost 13 years of marriage.
