R. Kelly has already faced 22 sexual abuse charges against young girls and women, and it looks like federal prosecutors are trying to bring more charges against him! According to the NPR, prosecutors allege that R. Kelly began sexual relations with two teenagers in the early 2000s and is reportedly attempting to use evidence of these alleged crimes in his upcoming trial.
Prosecutors allege R. Kelly began a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy he met at a McDonald’s in Chicago. This boy is said to have introduced Kelly to another young man, who was then 16 years old, and he reportedly forced both boys to have sex with several of his girlfriends. According to prosecutors, many of the alleged incidents were filmed.
After “Surviving R. Kelly” was released, the world learned of various alleged incidents in which women were sexually assaulted under his care. Many details have also emerged regarding Kelly’s relationship with the late singer Aaliyah, and prosecutors are attempting to provide additional evidence on this case as well. NPR reports that prosecutors allege that one day R. Kelly gave an Illinois state employee $ 500 to create a fake ID for Aaliyah.
That incident reportedly happened in 1994 when Aaliyah was 15 and R. Kelly’s goal was to marry the young singer because he believed she was pregnant. Kelly has also been charged on 21 child pornography cases, and if he and Aaliyah were married she would not be able to testify against him in court.
As we previously reported, R. Kelly is currently being held in Brooklyn pending trial. He has faced 22 state criminal charges for alleged abuse of girls and women for more than two decades. His trial is scheduled to begin on August 9th.
