R. Kelly’s original alleged underage sex tape victim filed for bankruptcy months after the singer was locked up on new charges.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly’s victim, who we will not be identifying by name, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy after experiencing recent financial problems.
The victim who was at the center of Kelly’s 2002 criminal investigation was the underage girl featured on the infamous sex tape. A couple of years after the tape was allegedly filmed, police started investigating the singer after being sent a copy of the tape. He would be indicted on 21 counts of child pornography, but the alleged victim refused to talk to law enforcement and went silent.
Kelly denied all allegations of wrongdoing with a minor. The trial began in 2008, after years of delays, and only took the jury one day to find him not guilty on all charges.
