Joycelyn Savage, R. Kelly’s longtime live-in girlfriend and now claimed fiancée, is getting ready to publish a tell-all book about their relationship.

In an email to The Post, Savage, confirmed the book titled “Love and Joy of Robert” should be published on Saturday.

Describing the book, she wrote “All I can say is that it is about Robert, the beginning of my life in Robert’s shadow, where things began to take off, and where they are currently going.”

Savage however declined to confirm nor deny to The Post that she and Kelly — whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly — are engaged.

She said “Everything will be answered in my book.”

Savage also failed to confirm whether the book would be self-published or through an established publishing house, or where it would be sold.

Savage wrote a letter to a federal judge in records obtained by The Post in July referring to herself as Kelly’s fiancée and pleading for him to have a lighter sentence for his decades-long sexual abuse of women and young girls and boys. Kelly received a 30-year prison term in the sex trafficking case.

She wrote “I’m writing this letter in support of Robert in advance of his sentencing, so I can explain to the court that I’m not the victim that the government has portrayed me to be.”

Going on to describe him as “all-around incredible person” and “not the monster that the government has described him to be.

“Robert and I are deeply in love and it breaks my heart that the government has created a narrative that I’m a victim.”

Savage continued. “I’m a grown woman and can speak for myself which is why I wanted to provide this letter to the court.”

“He is a great man, with a great heart and deserves to be home with his loved ones who are ready to support him.”

The union with Savage would be Kelly’s third. He secretly wed 15-year-old Aaliyah, in 1994. Their illegitimate union was dissolved. From 1996 through 2009, he was wed to choreographer Andrea Kelly; they had three children.
