A surprise witness from Atlanta is expected to testify for the defense at the R. Kelly trial today. The witness arrived in Chicago yesterday afternoon and was hustled away by defense attorneys. The man is expected to dispute a woman's claims that she engaged in a threesome with Kelly and the young girl at the center of child molestation charges against Kelly.

The girl who was 13 when prosecutors claim she appeared in a video engaging in sex acts with Kelly, has maintained that she is not the girl in the video. But several witnesses have come forward to identify the girl and Kelly as the subjects in the video.

the surprise witness is said to be the boyfriend of a woman who was set to testify against Kelly on Wednesday afternoon. The trial was abruptly halted at noon on Wednesday by Judge Vincent Gaughan before the woman could take the stand to describe a threesome she allegedly had with Kelly and the girl.

CBS 2 reported exclusively Tuesday night that defense attorneys claim the woman was trying to extort money from Kelly with false claims about that sexual threesome and even sought to have her arrested.

The mystery prosecution witness reportedly will claim she got tens of thousands of dollars from Kelly's people to return a tape of the threesome.

Damn, I miss Court TV.

    Mystery witness refuses to give his social security number
    Damon Pryor -- the mystery witness dramatically flown in from out of state last night by R. Kelly's attorneys -- has refused to give his social security number to the prosecution, further delaying the testimony of a potentially crucial state's witness.

    Defense attorneys hope the mystery witness can cast doubt on the story of an Atlanta woman, due to testify today that she participated in three-way sex with Kelly and the alleged victim in this case.

    The Atlanta woman's evidence could be crucial, since no other prosecution witness is expected to testify that they actually saw Kelly and the girl have sex first-hand.

    She's also expected to testify that Kelly's aides attempted to pay her off to keep her from testifying.

    Kelly's attorneys have battled for nearly two months to keep her from testifying and to limit what she can testify to if she does take the stand. Twice already this week she has been due to testify, only to see her testimony delayed by defense motions.

    The mystery witness who could undermine her was quizzed by Kelly's attorneys last night, but prosecutor Robert Heilingoetter this morning told Judge Gaughan that he needed more time to finish questioning the man. The mystery witness had refused to give prosecutors his social security number Heilingoetter said. Without it, the state can't confirm that he is who he says he is.

    Judge Gaughan told Heilingoetter, "If he doesn't give you his social security number, he's going to be in major trouble. All right?"

    The problems with the mystery witness mean the Atlanta woman will not testify until this afternoon, at the earliest. A detective and an FBI agent are set to testify this morning, instead.

    Threesome witness will not testify today
    The woman who had been scheduled to testify this week that she had a sexual threesome with R. Kelly and an underage girl will not testify today.

    The prosecution is currently questioning its last witness of the day, forensic video analyst Grant Fredericks. Meanwhile, the woman is catching a flight back to Atlanta, according to a source close to the situation. She is planning to return to Chicago on Sunday and might testify on Monday.

    The same source also described defense surprise witness Damon Pryor as a former boyfriend of the woman, a single mother from the Atlanta area. "He's just looking for his 15 minutes of fame," the source said.

    Earlier this month, the Chicago Sun-Times reported the woman would testify she had a three-way sexual encounter with Kelly and the underage girl who allegedly appears in the videotape that gave rise to criminal charges against Kelly.

    In secret hearings held in April, Judge Vincent Gaughan was told a Kelly aide paid the woman to get back a copy of a sex tape, sources said.

    The Kelly aide arranged for the woman to take a polygraph test to determine if she was telling the truth about that tape, sources said.
