A new video showing R. Kelly assaulting a minor has been resurfaced, CNN reports. The video, CNN, reveals shows a girl aged about 14 years old sexually positioned with the artiste.
According to Jim DeRogatis of The New Yorker, “a law enforcement official said that an indictment is pending and Kelly could be arrested soon.”
However, R. Kelly’s lawyer Steve Greenberg opines that he and his client are in the loop of the new development,
“We are unaware of any new information involving Mr. Kelly…. 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.”
In a statement, he continued, “Mr. Kelly denies that he has engaged in any illegal conduct, of any kind whatsoever.”
Meanwhile, a lawyer who has been working on the case, Michael J. Avenatti has said that he will ensure that the evidence is made public.
“Since April, I have been working on the R. Kelly matter. The results of that work will soon be known. We are going to blow this wide open for the sake of each of his victims and one less pedophile will be free. Count on it.”
On the 14th of February, he posted a statement on Twitter stating,
Below please find a second stmt relating to our investigation of R. Kelly. As a father of two teenage girls myself, I have the utmost faith and confidence in Ms. Foxx and her staff to ensure justice is done. pic.twitter.com/nlvPt4W7Dn
