R.Kelly’s court battle is yet to be won as the singer’s accusers have given their testimony against him to the federal grand jury. In their testimonies, it was alleged that the singer went lengths to traffic underages girls for his sexual desires.
On Wednesday, the numerous witnesses testified that the singer’s team made travel arrangements in order to move them across state lines for sexual purposes while they were underage. In 2008, it was alleged that the singer’s team paid off witnesses against testifying about his child pornography charges for which he was acquitted. According to TMZ, one of the families supposedly paid off by Kelly was the family of the alleged victim in the 2008 trial … his goddaughter. Prosecutors claimed the girl in a sex tape that was submitted into evidence was the goddaughter, but apparently, the jury wasn’t convinced … in no small part because she didn’t testify.
As at the time of the report, R. Kelly’s attorney; Steven Greenberg, is yet to comment.
