A never-before-seen sex tape has been brought forward involving R. Kelly and a girl that’s believed to be just 14 years old, according to attorney Michael Avenatti.
Avenatti says the 45-minute long VHS recording was uncovered after multiple clients came to him alleging Kelly had sexually assaulted minors. He claims the video clearly shows Kelly engaging in multiple sex acts with a girl.
CNN first reported the new video’s existence, and says they’ve seen it. According to their report, the girl calls the man — who appears to be Kelly — “daddy,” and also shows her urinating at his request. After that, he urinates on her. CNN says the girl is seen on tape referring to her body parts as “14 years old.”
Avenatti makes it clear this is NOT the video for which Kelly stood trial in 2008 … when he was acquitted.
Avenatti says he has presented the video to the Cook County State Attorney’s Office in Illinois. He does not say when the recording was made … but believes it’s within the statute of limitations.
A source close to R. Kelly reportedly tells TMZ that “it’s unfair to accuse the rapper of any wrongdoing without first trying to authenticate the video.”
