R. Kelly – Authorities Looking For More Sex Tapes W/ Minors
R. Kelly’s legal woes could get even worse. As he faces four counts concerning allegations he sexually assaulted women and minors, there are reports that investigators and prosecutors are looking even deeper into his alleged actions.
Authorities in his home state, Illinois, are searching for additional sex tapes that display him in the act with minors. They’re trying to find something that will prove he’s involved in sex trafficking, tax evasion and that he committed an obstruction of justice.
The singer’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, said of the investigation,
“The purpose of this, as with all investigations, is to see if there was or was not wrongdoing. It certainly does not mean there was.”
As for obstruction of justice, there’s concern that he and his legal team interfered with his 2008 trial in child pornography allegations against him. In that trial, there was an alleged video of him and an underaged woman having intercourse. He also allegedly urinated on the victim.
Her identity has been concealed, but in the Surviving R. Kelly documentary that aired on Lifetime in January, singer Sparkle said the victim was her niece who was 14 at the time the video was taken. The girl and her parents didn’t take the stand in his trial.
Now, police want to find out if R. Kelly and his team intimidated witnesses via payoffs and bribes to prevent them from testifying.
Meanwhile, he’s maintained his innocence.
