R. Kelly Accused of Sexually Abusing Teenage Boy in New Court Filing

  /  07.24.2021

R. Kelly is facing more accusations of sexual assault.

Federal prosecutors in New York on Friday detailed a series of new accusations against the R&B singer dating back 30 years, including the sexual abuse of a male minor in 2006.

The court filing, obtained by Page Six, alleges that Kelly sexually abused the 17-year-old boy after meeting him at a McDonald’s in Chicago and asking “what he was willing to do to succeed in the music business.”

The teen allegedly introduced Kelly to a second teenage boy, who was then 16 or 17 years old. Several years later, Kelly allegedly started a sexual relationship with the second John Doe and forced several of his girlfriends, including a minor girl, to have sex with the young man while he filmed.

Prosecutors said that a woman, who is expected to testify, alleged that Kelly directed her to search the internet for “child pornography involving boys for him.” A search authorized on Kelly’s computer corroborated the claim, according to the court doc.

Other allegations contained in the filing include unlawful imprisonment, hush money payments, threats and psychological abuse, and bribery.

Prosecutors allege that Kelly had one of his associates pay an Illinois state employee $500 to create a fake ID for Aaliyah, who was then 15 years old. The ID was used to obtain a marriage license so that she couldn’t be forced to testify against him in court. The two were married on Aug. 31, 1994, but the marriage was annulled months later because of her age.

The 54-year-old singer, who maintains his innocence, has been behind bars since his arrest in July 2019. He faces two sets of federal charges in New York and Chicago for allegedly abusing girls and women over the course of two decades. His New York trial is scheduled to begin next month.
