R. Kelly’s new alleged victims worked with prosecutors turning over a ton of evidence to help build the case against the singer.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the two women who recently came forward provided records of a ton of text conversations they had with Kelly along with hotel records.
Earlier this month, Kelly was hit with new criminal charges by federal prosecutors in New York. A new indictment was filed to include charges of coercion and enticement, coercion of a minor and transportation of a minor across state lines.
The prosecutors spoke to two new alleged victims, one who claims to have been under 18 when she met Kelly in 2015. Both victims accuse Kelly of knowingly exposing them to Herpes during unprotected sex.
In newly filed court documents, it is revealed Special agents with the New York Field Office of Homeland Security executed a search warrant at a storage unit in Elk Grover, Illinois. The details for why they obtained the warrant are currently sealed.
However, prosecutors admit they seized “numerous cellular telephones, iPads, computers, videotapes, and media, and is in the process of imaging and reviewing that material for items that are responsive to the search warrant.”
The new alleged victims turned over a ton of evidence to prosecutors. The court docs note a long list of documents they plan to present during the trial. The evidence includes text messages between Kelly and his alleged new victims, hotel records and Walgreen records.
Recently, prosecutors asked the court to postpone the arraignment of Kelly due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
As The Blast previously reported, Kelly is currently locked up in prison at MCC Chicago. The disgraced singer is facing two separate federal criminal cases. He is facing 190 years in prison on federal charges in Chicago and decades more in a New York case.
Since the Coronavirus outbreak, Kelly has whined about his treatment from behind bars. He complained the prison wasn’t allowing his visitors to come inside. The only people still visiting Kelly are his lawyers and his last remaining girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage.
A rep for the Bureau of Prisons in Illinois said the staff suspended all prisoners’ visitors for 30 days, not just Kelly.
Kelly’s ex-girlfriend Azriel Clary has been living her best life since leaving the singer in December. She moved out of his Trump Tower condo in Chicago and reunited with her family.
Since leaving Azriel has accused Kelly of years of abuse including one incident where he beat her with a size 12 Nike shoe.
