Azriel Clary finally has some answers to who set her car on fire!
The ex-girlfriend of former R&B singer R. Kelly took to social media in June 2020 to share that an unknown individual had set her car ablaze and had even attempted to do the same to her home.
“Someone not only set my car on fire at 3 am but they also made a gas line around my entire house, with intentions to burn my entire home down,” wrote Clary in an Instagram caption. ” It was something that was premeditated, but the fact that someone would go to that extreme to harm me is sickening.”
Now, Micheal Williams has been determined as the unknown arsonist and he is an alleged associate of R. Kelly.

Yesterday (April 19), Williams admitted to setting Clary’s car on fire to intimidate her into silence.
Not only did he want to silence her for speaking out about her romantic relationship with R. Kelly, but allegedly she was a witness to some of his criminal activity.
Due to the plea deal, Williams is being charged with one count of arson, but the witness tampering charge has been dropped.
Now, R. Kelly’s lawyer is denying his client’s connection to Williams.
“This is irresponsible to call this an RKelly associate,” wrote the attorney, Steve Greenberg, in a tweet. “They have never met or spoken. Kelly had NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM OR HIS CRIME.”
