R Kelly ‘sex documents’ unsealed

Witness claims Kelly associate threatened to kill her

Documents pertaining to R Kelly‘s child pornography case were unsealed yesterday (June 17) following the R&B star’s acquittal last week.

The documents include claims from star witness Lisa Van Allen that she received $100,000 in exchange for a videotape of a three-way sexual encounter with Kelly, Van Allen and his underage goddaughter.

Van Allen, who testified that Kelly videotaped their sexual encounter, said that one of the singer’s employees told her she should have been “murked,” street slang for murdered, for going to authorities, reports the Associated Press.

Kelly‘s representatives have portrayed Van Allen as a “thief and a liar”.

The documents also revealed that prosecutors examined financial records of the alleged victim and her parents, most likely to determine whether they had been compensated, but the results were never admitted into court.
