Family of Alleged R. Kelly Victim Denies Being Paid $2 Million
The family of the alleged victim involved in R. Kelly’s 2008 trial denies being paid $2 million to not testify.
According to TMZ, the family’s attorney, Christopher Brown says that Michael Avenatti’s allegations are completely untrue. Avenatti claimed that the victim did not testify in the trial because the family received a $2 million payoff.
Brown adds that “The victim and her family have been contacted by the United States Attorney’s Office in Chicago and are cooperating with the investigation of R. Kelly.”
As we reported, Michael Avenatti believes that the only reason Kelly got an acquittal is because he paid off the victim’s family, he adds that “R. Kelly bought his acquittal. He bought this victim and their parents and ensured that the truth was never told to that jury in 2008.”
The family strongly denies these claims and are actively working with investigators.
Kelly was recently arrested in Chicago last week for multiple sex crimes.
