R. Kelly is on a collision course with another famous defendant — Michael Avenatti — and it could all come to a head Tuesday morning when the singer appears in court to possibly challenge the authenticity of a sex tape.
The embattled singer is trying to blow up the sex tape by suggesting something fishy was going on between Avenatti and Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. In R. Kelly’s legal docs, he notes Avenatti has publicly claimed to have had repeated conversations with Foxx, and based on what happened in the Jussie Smollett case, he describes the prosecutor as someone who is “able to be influenced and wowed.”
He goes on to allege there are questions to suggest Foxx was “bullied or just simply manipulated by Avenatti.”
Avenatti previously came forward with 2 sex tapes he claims show Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl … and Kelly’s legal team wanted to know more about Avenatti’s relationship with Foxx, saying they were concerned Avenatti might have “bullied or simply manipulated” Foxx.
As we’ve reported … the tapes are part of the new evidence that prompted prosecutors to hit R. Kelly with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
