The U.S. Attorney’s office revealed that it has R. Kelly’s urgent care records and drugstore receipts as evidence in an effort to prove that the singer knowingly exposed women to an incurable STD.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Prosecutors initially tried to persuade a judge to keep the “sensitive information” sealed in order to speed up the proceedings in the ongoing legal saga, but in a letter to Kelly’s attorneys dated August 15th, they cited medical records that prove that the singer knowingly gave at least one sexual partner an STD.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Geddes said that her office had the singer’s medical records from different sources, including University Health Systems and Urgent Care and drugstore chain, Walgreens- which bolstered their claims that he knowingly infected partners with the Herpes virus.
Kelly’s lawyers have denied the claims and maintain that there is “zero evidence” that he gave the alleged victim an STD.
The Feds also claim to also have receipts for hotel stays, air travel, Ubers and bank statements that provide a neatly outlined paper trail that show that both Kelly and his employees conspired to transport alleged victims from state to state.
The government didn’t stop there. They also served search warrants on AT&T and Apple to get access to Kelly’s records and have seized the emails he’s sent from inside federal lockup.
The feds are building a case, alleging that for more than 20 years, R. Kelly has been the head of a criminal empire that has shuttled girls from all across the country, directly to him for sex.
The disgraced singer has been indicted on racketeering charges and for kidnapping and forced labor.
