R. Kelly’s so-called girlfriends will be visiting him frequently now that he’s in his prison’s general population, but their visits will be strictly cordial … NOT conjugal. The singer’s attorney, Steven Greenberg tells TMZ … Joycelyn Savage and…
The fall of R. Kelly has been spectacular to witness and it’s only going to get worse from this point out. Adding insult to injury, Kelly’s crisis manager, Darrell Johnson, pretty much spotted the jig to come and got out of dodge promptly after an interview with CBS News’ Gayle King.
CBS News reports:
“I step down as crisis manager for personal reasons. Mr. Kelly is in good hands with Mr. Greenberg,” Johnson said, referring to Steve Greenberg, the criminal defense attorney who heads Kelly’s legal team in Chicago. The news come hours after Johnson appeared on “CBS This Morning” and told co-host Gayle King that he would never leave his own daughter alone with an accused pedophile.
Pressed on whether he wouldn’t leave his daughter alone with Kelly specifically, Johnson repeated: “I would not leave my daughter with anyone that’s accused of being a pedophile. I would not.”
When King pointed out the seeming contradiction of defending Kelly, an accused pedophile, and simultaneously saying he wouldn’t trust his own daughter alone with anyone accused of that crime, Johnson repeated, “I wouldn’t leave my daughter with anyone — I’m going to say it again — that’s accused of being a pedophile.”
The fact remains that Johnson was on the payroll defending Kelly so either the money ran out or he spotted an upcoming jig.
Plus, exclusive interviews with Young Dummer Boy, Buckwild and Sons of Sonix.
R. Kelly might finally face a level of justice unlike he’s ever seen in times prior in relation to his many ongoing legal ordeals. After the Feds took down the beleaguered R&B singer, details of the arrest have been coming forth, including some of Kelly’s former staffers handing over nearly two dozen tapes of him having sex with underage girls.
Gerald Griggs — who represents Joycelyn Savage’s family among others — tells TMZ the federal investigation run by the Northern District of Illinois uncovered over 20 videos of Kelly engaged with minors.
Both Griggs and our federal law enforcement sources tell us the tapes show multiple victims … and prosecutors confirmed with multiple witnesses the girls were underage. Griggs says several of Kelly’s enablers — past and present — flipped and turned over the tapes to investigators. He says those videos were exactly what the feds needed to secure indictments for sex crimes, including child pornography.
We broke the story last month … an ex-employee testified the singer regularly recorded his sexual encounters with underage girls, and believed the feds got their hands on some of that video.
Kelly is facing 13 counts, including four counts of producing child pornography, and two counts of receiving child pornography.
They say this is why he skipped his underage sexual abuse trail earlier this week.
R. Kelly might as well rent out a vacant lot in Struggle-Ville, because the R&B singer has been taking lumps left and right. After Kelly’s bank accounts were seized by a creditor, he was left with negative $ 13 in his account according to court documents.
The Blast reports:
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wintrust Bank, where Kelly holds an account, informed one of his creditors (his former landlord) that the singer currently has a balance of negative $ 13 with them.
Kelly did have two other accounts with Bank of America — holding $ 44,595.58 and $ 110,056.64, for a grand total of $ 154,527.22 — but everything but $ 625 was seized by his former landlord to settle a massive debt owed.
ASCAP — the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, which collects money for artists — claims Kelly is not owed any money by them.
The docs were filed as part of the legal battle involving Kelly and his former Chicago landlord. The landlord sued accusing him of owing back rent.
The creditor is seeking an additional $ 50,000 from Sony to settle the debt for good.
7:30 PM PT — R. Kelly reportedly failed to post the $ 100k bond by the cutoff time of 9 PM in Chicago, so he’ll have to spend the night in jail. 2:10 PM PT — We’re told until R. Kelly makes bail, he’s being held in a holding pen by himself because the…
Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries not only put the spotlight back on the singer’s predatory behavior but also sparked a serious conversation regarding child molestation. Kelly’s younger brother Carey Kelly touched on being molested in the doc and now is sharing even more details.
The Kelly family has some serious issues.
Carey revealed in the Dream Hampton directed docuseries that like his older brother he too was molested by a family member. He didn’t tell all of the details but did state he tried to speak with his brother about it but was dismissed and based on that reaction decided to keep it a secret from his mother.
Last year in December, Carey spoke with radio personality Tasha K and gave a very detailed account of the molestation that took place at the hands of his late older sister Theresa. Describing the situation as a “Catch 22” because he understood why his sister had to babysit him and his older brothers due to his mother having to work and go to school. In the interview, he recounts his older sibling using the opportunity to put him in situations no child should be in that continue to haunt him to this day.
The first Kelly recounts his sister forcing him to touch her private area.
At first, I thought she was playing, but she was insistent on me coming over to her and I was hesitant and she grabbed my arm. She took my hand and started rubbing it on her private part and I started crying. I guess that kind of scared her. Then she told me to go back to the living room. That was the first time she attempted to test the waters, so to speak. “
Kelly then shares how a week later from the first incident how his sister became more aggressive even performing oral sex on him.
“She took my face, and I’m short and she brought me into the room from the living room and she had the robe on again and she sat on the bed and she grabbed my head and put it down by her private part. She told me to lick her private parts. Of course, I didn’t know what I was doing at six years old she was like ‘stick your tongue out! stick your tongue out! lick it! lick it! lick it fast’ She was giving me instructions. I just started crying and then she went down and she started giving me oral sex, even as a kid I know this was wrong. I’m not condoning this.”
The molestation went on for six years with Kelly never telling his late mother. You can watch him tell his own story in the interview below.
