Grand Jury ‘Convenes After New Video Evidence Emerges Of R. Kelly Having Sex With A 14-Year-Old Girl’
R Kelly could soon be singing his greatest hits behind bars. A grand jury has reportedly been convened following fresh claims the singer filmed himself having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Sources told CNN on Monday that the grand jury has been seated in Cook County, Illinois. This comes after attorney Michael Avenatti revealed last week he had given prosecutors evidence of the R&B star having sex with the underage girl. Avenatti is best known for representing porn star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Trump.
The lawyer says his office was flooded by multiple victims regarding allegations of sexual assault of minors by Kelly. After the Surviving R Kelly documentary aired on Lifetime, activists from the #MeToo and #MuteRKelly movements called for streaming services to drop Kelly’s music. Meanwhile Kelly and his attorney have denied allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls.
