R. Kelly Meets With Attorney Tom Mesereau, Who’s Defended Bill Cosby & Michael Jackson
R. Kelly looks to change up his legal team as he’s taken a meeting with Thomas “Tom” Mesereau, a top criminal defense attorney who’s previously defended Bill Cosby and won the 2005 child molestation case against Michael Jackson.
Sources tell TMZ that Mesereau is reportedly in Chicago meeting with the imprisoned singer, who’s facing various felony sex crimes in four jurisdictions of Illinois State, Illinois Federal, New York Federal and Minnesota State. Should Mesereau join the team, he’ll take lead, if not solely represent the singer.
In addition to winning an acquittal in MJ’s molestation case, the top notch defense attorney also had ‘Cold Blood‘ actor Robert Blake acquitted of murdering his wife, also in 2005.
