R. Kelly's attorney: He 'didn't do anything wrong'

R. Kelly's attorney: He 'didn't do anything wrong'

Federal prosecutors say R. Kelly and his entourage recruited girls and women to engage in illegal sexual activity with the singer over the course of two decades and covered up the crimes by paying and threatening victims and witnesses. An indictment unsealed Friday in Chicago says Kelly arranged for a girl and her parents to travel overseas so they could not talk with police prior to his 2002 indictment on 21 counts of child pornography, and later instructed them to lie to a grand jury about the case. His attorney, Steve Greenberg, said the latest charges were "not a surprise" and that Kelly should be allowed to post bail. "It's the worst kept secret he was going to get charged federally, and he hasn't fled," he said following Friday's hearing. He also accused the federal government of "piling on" with the new charges and described his client as unflappable despite a series of indictments in recent months. He also questioned if the victims referenced in the indictments were actually victims. "They've charged him in New York with enticing people and encouraging people to have sex with him," Greenberg said. "I don't think people accidentally have sex so I'm not really sure what the criminal activity is there." Kelly was acquitted in 2008 of charges that he recorded a video of him engaging in sex acts with the girl, who was 12 or 13 when they met in the mid-1990s. A separate indictment filed in the Eastern District of New York includes charges of racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and the sexual exploitation of a child. It says Kelly and his managers, bodyguards and other assistants picked out women and girls at concerts and other venues, and arranged for them to travel to see Kelly. Kelly's entourage also set rules the women and girls had to follow, including not leaving their rooms _ even to eat or go to the bathroom _ without Kelly's permission, calling the singer "Daddy" and not looking at other men, the indictment alleges. Kelly was arrested Thursday night ...
Avenatti: R. Kelly paid $2M to silence accuser

Avenatti: R. Kelly paid $2M to silence accuser

Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti said Monday that R&B singer R. Kelly paid $2 million to keep the alleged victim in a child pornography case off the witness stand during his 2008 trial that ended with him acquitted of all charges. R. Kelly bought his acquittal," Avenatti told reporters at a news conference in which he provided more details of what he said has been a years-long effort by Kelly to prevent his sexual abuse of several underage girls from becoming public. He said Kelly paid at least one associate $100,000 to hunt down videos of him having sex with a minor that had gone missing. Avenatti said he represents three alleged victims, three parents of victims, two associates of Kelly and one other person. Avenatti's comments come just days after federal prosecutors announced they'd indicted Kelly in New York and Chicago on charges that he and his entourage recruited girls and young women to engage in illegal sexual activity and covered it up by paying and threatening witnesses and victims. The 52-year-old Kelly was arrested and remains in federal custody. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday for a bond hearing, during which prosecutors are expected to argue that he should remain locked up because he is both dangerous and a flight risk. His attorney has denied the allegations.
R. Kelly arrested, publicist speaks in Atlanta

R. Kelly arrested, publicist speaks in Atlanta

A publicist for singer R. Kelly has delivered a statement at a chaotic news conference in Atlanta. The news conference Friday morning was interrupted seconds after beginning, when the family of Joycelyn Savage, a woman who lived with Kelly in Chicago, confronted Kelly's publicist Darrell Johnson and pleaded to speak with their daughter. Kelly has been arrested in Chicago on a sweeping federal indictment that accuses him and members of his entourage of recruiting women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity. Johnson said that Kelly was currently being held in Cook County, Illinois. He said he believed Kelly would likely be arraigned later Friday and have a bond hearing sometime next week. Johnson insisted he had "nothing to do" with Joycelyn Savage and that she wasn't being held against her will. "I personally don't know your daughter. I've met your daughter six times. I've seen her in and out of Trump Tower. I haven't seen anything that I would say is suspicious or harmful to your daughter," he told the woman's parents amid the heated exchange. An indictment unsealed Friday in the Eastern District of New York includes charges of racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and the sexual exploitation of a child. It says Kelly and his managers, bodyguards and other assistants picked out women and girls at concerts and other venues and arranged for them to travel to see Kelly. They also set rules the women and girls had to follow, including not leaving their rooms — even to eat or go to the bathroom — without Kelly's permission, calling the singer "Daddy," and not looking at other men, the indictment alleges. The indictment alleges that the criminal acts occurred over two decades dating back to 1999, both in the U.S. and overseas. It accuses Kelly of engaging in sexual acts with girls under 18 and without disclosing that he had a sexually transmitted disease. It also accuses him of producing child pornography, including by asking minors to send him photographs. A...
