R.Kelly Wants To Have Sex Tape Copies
R.Kelly has requested for copies of the sex tapes that might indict him and leave him in prison.
This new development is coming on the heels of travelling to Dubai for gigs which the Dubai government has shown their displeasure and are fighting against. The Dubai Media Office, issued a statement Sunday stating that the government was unaware of the supposed gigs and his alleged meeting with the ruling royal Al Maktoum family of Dubai.
The DMO said of the embattled R and B star, “Authorities in Dubai have not received any request for a performance by singer R. Kelly nor are there any venues that have been booked.”
Meanwhile, at his hearing in court, R.Kelly and his lawyers demanded to see the sex tapes and are hoping that by Friday, copies will be in their hands.
TMZ reports that his lawyer, Steven Greenberg says that after his prosecutors hand over the tapes and other materials (police reports, reports from his 2008 trials and the two sex tapes from Michael Avennatti) at the hearing, they might be lucky to get the copies.
R.Kelly’s alleged paedophilia was brought to the surface after the airing of a docu-series titled “Surviving R.Kelly.” The video saw some of his alleged victims most of whom had been handed over by their parents to him to help ensure that their daughters are trained to be stars, confess to sleeping with him. To counter their allegations, he opened a Facebook page Surviving Lies which was taken down.
Aaliyah is said to be one of his victims who he married when she was only 15 and later divorced. His brother Carey, also made some damning allegations after saying that their sister had abused RKelly and their brother (who is now in jail) for six years.
His ex-wife and his children are not singled out from the ongoing controversy. Although he blames his wife for cutting off his relationship with his children, his daughter once described him as a monster. His transgender son also released a diss track.
