Seems like getting away with his first sex tape scandal made R. Kelly naiive enough to fall into it a second time.
With courts already building a case against him since the airing of “Surviving R. Kelly,” this may be the final nail in the coffin. Prosecuting Attorney Michael Avenatti made a very clear tweet that he’s coming hard for the alleged sexual abuser. ‘The New Yorker’ reported speaking with Avenatti before he announced the new development.
The statement explained his role in representing “multiple clients in connection with allegations of sexual assault of minors.” He also admitted to having a 45-minute videotape of Kelly performing sexual acts with a young girl who refers to her privates as “14-year-old p*ssy, in which “the time frame of sexual assaults depicted [were] within the Illinois statute of limitations.” A law enforcement figure also confirmed that an indictment should be expected very soon.
Meanwhile, Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, has continued to try to keep his client’s image as clean as possible. It was all denial in an interview with the “Associated Press.”
“He never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone.”
