R. Kelly To Appear In Court For Allegedly Ruining A Mississippi Man’s Marriage

R. Kelly is under fire yet again.

R&B superstar R. Kelly is still being accused of ruining a marriage. According to Radar Online, a man from Mississippi by the name of Kenny Bryant will finally have his day in court after years of waiting to face off with the embattled artist.

Kenny filed the lawsuit in 2018, claiming that R. Kelly–whose real name is Robert Kelly–had a 5-year-long affair with his ex-wife Asia Childress. Asia was previously involved with R. Kelly but assured Kenny that their relationship was over prior to their marriage in 2012. Kenny alleged that the “intimate extramarital affair” began in October of that year after R. Kelly performed at a concert nearby.

Sometime during their marriage, Asia convinced Kenny to move to Atlanta, where R. Kelly resided. Eventually, he found out that she was eager to relocate to be closer to the “Ignition (Remix)” singer. Kenny also alleged that R. Kelly gave his ex-wife chlamydia.

Asia later filed for divorce. Today, Kenny, who’s also a sheriff, is suing R. Kelly for “depriving him of his spouse.” He’s demanding undisclosed compensation for the emotional and psychological pain that he claims R. Kelly caused. The lawsuit was put on hold due to the singer’s ongoing legal troubles.

The courts have ordered R. Kelly to testify through videoconferencing as he sits in jail for sex trafficking charges.

Earlier this year, the Grammy Award-winning recording artist was found guilty on nine counts of racketeering, sexual exploitation of a child, kidnapping, bribery, among other charges. He’s expected to be sentenced in May 2022, and he’s also facing another criminal case in Chicago. R. Kelly reportedly denies having any responsibility for the demise of Kenny and Asia’s marriage.


The deposition will take place this month (Dec.).
