Two more women have spoken during the lawsuit against R. Kelly in Chicago about alleged sexual abuse by the American singer when they were minors. The women said in their testimony that they had sex with him several times against their will.
One of them stated under the pseudonym Pauline that the abuse started when she was fourteen years old. She also said she caught the now 55-year-old singer with her best friend, who was fifteen at the time.
According to Pauline, they were forced together to, among other things, threesomes and recording sex videos. Another woman, who testified under the pseudonym Tracy, stated that she was abused by Kelly between the ages of 16 and 18.
The lawsuit against the singer in Chicago started a few weeks ago. He is on trial in that American city for several charges of sexual abuse of minors and for, among other things, the production of child pornography. He would also have obstructed justice in 2008 during a case against him for child pornography. An alleged victim has already spoken in the current case. Two more are expected to follow.
Kelly, who has been incarcerated since 2019, was already found guilty in New York at the end of June of, among other things, leading an organization that had the aim of abusing women and underage girls. He was sentenced to thirty years in prison. The singer has been accused of (child) abuse since the 1990s, but has always maintained that he is innocent.
