R Kelly

Lawyer Michael Avenatti claims he turned over a newly uncovered VHS videotape that shows singer R. Kelly allegedly performing sex acts with an underage girl. Avenatti said in a statement on Thursday that he recently uncovered the 45-minute long VHS videotape.

Avenatti said the tape was recorded in Chicago in the late 1990s, which would put Kelly in his late 20s or early 30s. He said the tape has never been publicly disclosed or provided to law enforcement.

According to Yahoo News, CNN viewed the videotape and said the tape appears to show the girl identifying her genitals as 14-years-old. CNN said the girl appeared to be an active participant in multiple sex acts with the troubled singer/songwriter.

Whether the girl is a willing participant is irrelevant since the age of consent in Illinois is 17.

Avenatti told The Huffington Post he is representing a man who is a "whistleblower" against Kelly and that he handed the tape over to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office in Chicago last weekend.

The tape is similar to one that was leaked online in 2002 and was viewed by millions of Internet users on adult porn websites. The 2002 tape showed Kelly urinating on a 14-year-old girl. Kelly was acquitted in a criminal trial related to the girl in the 2008 tape.

Kelly dominated the headlines in January when Lifetime Network aired a documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which featured interviews by several adult women who accused him of abuse and kidnapping.

    I believe that statue of limitations have passed. Even so they won’t get whenever the girl on the video or her family to come forward. It’s going to be the same crap as last time.
    They are really really reaching to make a name for themselves and bring this man down for good. Not saying he doesn’t deserve it but if they really cared they would have done something years ago.

    Stop beating a dead horse.

    Avenetti in hot water himself beating and dragging that woman. He a hired snake. If they through money around at the rate they did Cosby they can destroy every black man in America.

    Prosecutors should have handled Kelly years ago. They had the evidence. Knew he was a pedophile. No excuses. Now they want to #mutetheman but streaming white men want to keep making money off his music.

    When is Meuller going to arrest Trump?

  • sunni_daze

    VHS is smart, because you can't upload up and makes duplicates as quickly as you can with today's tech. Its like having an analog phone you can't hack or track

    Yup. The snake himself

  • Rayne

    I don’t believe it. Waiting to see what happens cause I sholl believe these are old. We will see ????

    Well I hope R. Kelly lets folks know to really seek help... You may have been a victim and it may F'd you up mentally, but you should seek help. smh smh smh This isn't it.

    They've been popping the perverts hard this week.

    First the names of the 188 priests who've been accused of molestation in the whole entire history of NJ were released earlier this week.

    Then the Southern Baptists molesters and rapists got busted and to finish off the week on St. Valentine's Day R Kelly starring in a VHS tape from who knows when.

  • Junkanoo

    R Kelly is one in a very long list of peophiles in the entertainment industry it's fucked up they're only focusing on black men. I watched a documentry on Shirley Temple and she talked about having a meeting with a movie executives for new projects she and her mom .They were put in seperate rooms and Shirley said the man she was in a meeting with exposed himself she claims she laughed out of discomfort and he put it away. When she and her mom were done with the meeting and headed home Shirley told her mom and in turn her mom told her the executive she meet with wanted her to sleep with him . This was back in the late 1930s early 1940s . I was never really into R Kelly that much lock him up and all the rest of the sex predators .

  • Being bad is way more fun

    You all know good and well this aint no child porn video .. Just like the last one they claimed was a child that wasnt. If he was really guilty of something his ass would have been under the jail years ago !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    The Cook County Correction System is a good place for him to start.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    There's people on here already defending him. His supporters always come out of the woodwork to blame "the man", the system, racism... anything but the sexual predator himself.

  • OvertheMississippi

    No! No! No! "They" are only doing this to black men. (sarcasm)

  • Well$$Well$$?

    R Kelly is going to get exactly what's coming to him. Even if it's justice delayed.

  • the guest

    What was he thinking when he urinated on a child? That type of act is extreme masochism and eroticism that most adults never participate in their life and R Kelly sexualized a child to that vile extent. Unreal.

  • MsJC

    Lets see if the girl will testify this time and provide what her age was at the time of the experience.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    And the look on Toure's face when he said it was like ?.

  • Topic Influencer

    Fukk him. He needs to pay his baby mama his child support. I'm a huge fan. But he on timeout.

  • the guest

    If they locked up 81 years old blind Bill Cosby, then R Kelly is definitely going to prison. The trial will be a formality. He's a wanted man.

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    so you don't believe he pees on underage girls? what does it matter if the tape is old. You got a statute of limitations for somebody violating your child?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's what it's going to come down to. The last girl didn't cooperate, and he ended up getting off. If this one cooperates, he's done.

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    ur sad. this man is a predator who preys on children and flaunts it in his music and lifestyle but cuz its some old ish we not supposed to care? gtfoh so tired of our community not standing up for our children, women and the elderly. it's unacceptable. aint nobody trying to make a name for themselves, they are finally doing what should have been done when the first tape came out. so i'll beat that horse til it don't get up again if it means no other girls are sucked into his toxic web.

    Newly uncovered??? Come one, in todays technological arena a VHS tape would not be hard to spot. So seems like this “whistleblower” may have kept this tape on lock. This could have stopped years of this alleged mess from happening. I really hope he just found the tape and just handed to the lawyer if not you are just as sick as him. If this “whistleblower” still has a VCR in his house he may be lying...

    That's creepy. And you know there are lot of moms who go ahead and do whatever, so their baby can become "a star". Ick.?

  • DeeFromLA

    Speculation of course but if they are announcing a new tape they have probably made sure they covered their bases this time. They probably already have the woman ready to testify. If she identifies herself the next thing will be a civil suit. That would be the only reason a lawyer like Avenetti would get involved, for a payday. He is even lower than Gloria Alred and Lisa Bloom

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Toure' looked at him like "nigga are you serious right now?"

    yes! LOL!!!

  • DeeFromLA

    The Whistle Blower probably gave up the tape and cut a deal. Someone was helping R. Kelly coordinate all this nonsense. It's probably ole boy that threatened to shoot up the Surviving R. Kelly premiere

  • Rayne

    Where did I say all of this? I’ve seen the tape honey and I reside in CHICAGO ? I’m not a prosecutor and furthermore that’s his business. Ain’t nobody violating nothing over here. We don’t live that lifestyle ????
    Good day hun ?

  • hi-liter

    I think it was Kelly’s manager that gave up the tape. The same one that knew about everything he was doing, the one that was on Being R.Kelly, the same one the district attorney issued a warrant for in ATL after that show was aired.

    Right. Sounds like a pedophile ring. That tape wasn't just discovered.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Aiding. Complicit. Obstructing justice.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't think it can work that way.
    If they passed the law AFTER it was discovered I don't think it would apply because R Kelly's lawyer could say that the law was created just to get him.
    I don't if that's a winning argument but I would it use it in an attempt to have the tape suppressed during a trial.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    MAn alleged victim put out a short book or story of their sexual romps and she claimed to be 16 at the time khia read the book outloud on her YouTube baaaaaaaaaaaby the things she described they were doing had me like ? as a full grown woman I ain’t had those things done to me not have I done them to anyone else that man is a sexual demon in the flesh. The things she described I was like who would think to do something like that. On top of that he was having like sexual marathons with her I was exhausted just listening to the story. It was sick and demeaning

    Crazy days and nights did a long detailed blind detailed item about a ring of sexual predators in Hollywood and that they were flying kids from other countries to an island mainly boys and having sexy with them it said that one of the guys was under investigation it if he goes down he would tell on everyone

    He was in the Lifetime documentary too, right? If it’s the same guy I’m thinking of my question throughout the entire documentary was where is this man’s integrity ????? Smh. It was clear he didn’t care what would happen to those little girls before, during and after all these heinous acts. Throw his ass under the jail, please!

  • Dreamer

    That’s what I’m saying. Who has the urge to want to pee on someone and to be PEED on during a sexual act? Lawd some of these folks out’chere. ?????

  • hi-liter

    Yep, that’s the one I’m referring too.

  • hi-liter

    They always do.

  • Dreamer

    Never thought of Shirley Temple, but that seems very plausible knowing there are some sick fukks out here in this world. I don’t think it’s worth it to be a “child star” because they are put at so much risk just for the sake of being put on and establishing a career in Hollywood.

    I don't even think I care that he was having sex with these girls. They were giving it up to him and Dayday down the street. Pregnant by 15. It's just your average ghetto rat, popping that butt and sleeping around. Teach your daughters better. Where are the parents of these 14 year olds running after R. Kelly. Oh, that's right. Some parents take their suicidal underage daughter to an R. Kelly concert, put her onstage to bump and grind with him and are surprised when she runs off with him.

  • Topic Influencer

    Some of these girls were pimped by their parents. Agree. But Others had no one TO teach them. Try to find some empathy for the ones who were taken advantage of. Don't call her fast. She had NOBODY. To guide. Teach. Steer. I feel sorry for all of them. I have a 14 yo so we are teaching and loving on her. She has friends not as fortunate. Won't EVER judge a 14 yo. I just can't.

    i knew a 14 year old in chicago who was sleeping w/ a 26 yr old. she was preggo by 15. I was a couple years older & wondering wtf is wrong w/these little fast-assed girls. As an adult, im convinced her father may have been molesting her/her mom was a crackwhore who abandoned her to him. either way, its more common than socially acceptable outside of chicago ..but still disgusting.. yet..common

  • Goodii2Shoes

    u'r so right. when u are raised w/that discipline at home, u take it for granted because you don't know the alternative. i understand now why so many young moms seek mentors for their daughters
