R. KELLY pushes back against $10.5 million judgment

Tuesday, January 16, 2024
 – Imprisoned RnB singer, R.Kelly has pushed back against a judgement ruled in favour of women who claimed they were victimized by him.

The six women were awarded $10.5 million in August after suing him and his former manager, Donnell Russell, claiming they were responsible for an effort to shut down a December 2018 NYC screening of the 'Surviving R. Kelly' docuseries with a mass shooting threat.

However reacting to the judgement, R.Kelly said he would would have defended himself against the lawsuit if he knew about it.

He claimed his head is already spinning over his various criminal cases and prosecutions, and he's been sued so many times lately that he can hardly keep up with it all from his prison cell in North Carolina.

The singer also claimed he has shuffled legal teams since being locked up, and he stated that this lawsuit must have slipped through the cracks, or not have been delivered to him behind bars at all.

He added that even if the lawsuit was delivered, he wouldn't be able to understand it or distinguish it from any other legal documents as he relies on his lawyers to explain things to him because "he cannot read or understand words beyond that of a grade-schooler."

Kelly further averred that Donnell was never his manager and he had no idea Russell was trying to stop the 'Surviving' screening. He stated that he didn't ask Donnell to do so and if he did make a mass shooting threat to stop the screening, "he did that for his own reasons."
