Woman plays R. Kelly "hundreds" Describe the abuse

The victim accuses the singer of assaulting her when she was between 14 and 18 years old. Kelly faces another decade in prison.

A woman has accused former pop star R. Kelly of various abuses when she was a minor. The now-adult testified at Kelly’s Chicago trial on Thursday that he had sex with her “hundreds” of times when she was between the ages of 15 and 18. The US media reported unanimously. However, the first sexual acts had already taken place when she was 14 years old. Previously, Kelly had accepted her as a goddaughter.

The woman is central to the lawsuit because she is in a leaked video more than 20 years ago in which Kelly allegedly sexually abused her and urinated on her.

Kelly was acquitted in an earlier trial in the 2008 case. The prosecution now accuses him of having pressured the victim at the time not to testify in the case. After further questioning in court, it was hoped that the woman would be able to confirm that she was the girl in the video.

Accused on 13 counts

Just weeks after being sentenced to 30 years in prison for molesting a child, Kelly faces 13 counts in Chicago, including multiple counts of manufacturing child pornography, inducing a young man to engage in sexual activity and obstructing justice. Two of his former employees were also charged. The process should take about a month. Kelly faces another decade in prison.
