According to a new report by CNN, a video of embattled music star, R. Kelly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl has emerged.
It is gathered that prosecutors investigating R. Kelly (who has been accused of multiple abuse of multiple young women) are looking into a newly surfaced video featuring the R&B superstar.
A lawyer identified as Michael Avenatti told CNN about this new development and it is also learnt that CNN has seen the VHS tape.
In the video, Kelly is reported to be having sex with a girl who refers to her body parts as 14 years old. Avenatti, who is representing a man he calls a whistleblower against Kelly, says he handed the tape to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Chicago last weekend.
The 42 minutes and 45 seconds footage is also said to be very explicit and clearly shows the singer abusing the minor. In one of the scenes in the video, there is a naked R. Kelly in a living room and another scene in a bedroom. He is seen performing multiple sex acts with the girl and she is heard calling him “daddy” multiple times.
“My client knows the identity of the girl and R. Kelly. He identified the two of them on the videotape. He worked for and has known R. Kelly for decades and he met the girl on a number of occasions,”
On Thursday, Avenatti tweeted out a statement describing the tape.
Steve Greenberg, R. Kelly’s attorney, told CNN he had not heard of the development.
“We are unaware of any new information involving Mr. R. Kelly,”
he told CNN.
“We have not been contacted by anyone. We have not been informed about any new information by anyone and we have not been contacted by law enforcement.”
