R. Kelly’s Lawyers Have A Week To Respond To Lawsuit

Attorneys for R. Kelly were given a week’s time by a judge to respond to a sex abuse lawsuit against him, failing which, he will lose the court fight.

Cook County Associate Judge Moira Johnson gave Kelly’s lawyers until June 26 to respond to the lawsuit filed by a sex abuse victim.

The 36-year-old complainant alleges in the lawsuit filed in February that the R&B singer engaged in frequent sexual contact with her since 1998, when she was in her teens.

Kelly is mired in multiple legal battles after four women raised sexual abuse allegations against him.

After spending a few days behind bars, Kelly was released on bail from a Chicago jail in February after pleading not guilty to sexual abuse charges and posting $100,000 bail.

Forbidden from making contact with females younger than 18, the singer is awaiting trial on several sexual abuse charges, some of which have been ongoing for more than a decade.
