Allegedly, R. Kelly sexually abused Aaliyah, the singer of R&B, back when she was just 13 or maybe 14 years old – one of his backing dancers revealed to the court.
The woman who was revealed to the court was identified as Angela. She explained, the entire scene of R.Kelly abusing Aaliyah happened while she was on the tour bus.
The reported incident happened a year before when R.Kelly unlawfully married the star. She was just 15 back then.
R.Kelly, who is now 54, denied his wrongdoings and the harassment allegations, including his fraudulent business, which portrays him as the master of the criminal establishment whose primary purpose is “to prey upon young women and teenagers” and to fulfill their sexual desires. Furthermore, he was accused of breaking interstate laws for sex trafficking.
The court did not charge the singer Robert Kelly for any accusations like rape or harassment. However, the prosecutors are permitted to present proof of potential criminal activities, regardless of when they happened.
On the 15th day of the court trial, Angela’s evidence showed up in Brooklyn, New York.
Including the one Angela told, it is the 10th harassment case that has been filed against R.Kelly, witnessing former sexual abuses by him.
She revealed to the court that she and R.Kelly started their sexual relationship back in 1991. At that time, she was school-going.
According to her statement, they met at his house when she was 15. He had organized a huge party and invited her as well. She added that a time came when he called her to come to his bedroom and “asked me to climb on top of him”. Initially, she denied it as she was confused, but eventually, they had sex at his insistence.
Later on, R.Kelly also invited the young girl to join his touring entourage. The girl also revealed, R.Kelly mostly pressure girls around him to have sex with him. Those who would disagree had to face his anger and punishment.
She further told the court that the sexual abuse with Aaliyah happened in 1992 or 1993 when the witness and another woman with her planned to prank R.Kelly.
After forcefully opening his bedroom door, she said: “I saw Robert and Aaliyah in a sexual situation.” And “I closed the door abruptly and pushed the girl behind me away from the door.”
The witness said she never told anything that she saw to R.Kelly. Previous witnesses told the court that they made false documents so that R.Kelly could marry Aaliyah despite her underage. However, Angela is the only one who witnessed their sexual relationship and confirmed seeing them in that state
