Prosecutors in New York came forward Friday with new charges in the case against R&B singer R. Kelly.
New federal documents for the first time accuse R/B singer R.Kelly of molding young boys.
Federal documents mention a John Doe, a young boy Kelly is accused of abusing.
The allegations include accusations of abuse involving at least 10 more girls in Chicago, dating back to 1991 as well as videos of Kelly physically and verbally abusing women.
“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,” Avenatti said.
Some 2006 court court papers show Kelly met a John Doe #1 then asked the boy “what he was willing to do to succeed in the music business and clarified he wanted John Doe #1 to engage in sexual contact with Kelly.”
The teen introduced Kelly to a male friend.
The complaint goes on to say years later “Kelly started a sexual relationship with John Doe #2” and at times even “paid John Doe #2 after sexual encounters with him.”
The complaint states the boys met Kelly when they were both 17.
