If R. Kelly thought he had trouble before, he’s really about to be in it now that Michael Avenatti is on the case. The lawyer best known for representing Stormy Daniels is now representing a man he describes as a "whistleblower" against Kelly.
Avenatti claims to have a sex tape that shows him with a 14-year-old. In the 45-minute footage, he says the girl refers to her age several times while engaging in sexual acts. The whistleblower claims to know the identity of the child in the video. At this point, Avenatti – who claims to have been investigating the matter since April of last year – has handed the tape over to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
R’s lawyers claim they haven’t heard about the tape and haven’t been contacted by authorities. However, a senior law-enforcement official says that it just might lead to his indictment and he could be arrested soon.
