R Kelly sex claims denied
AN attorney for R. Kelly says the R&B star denies all allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls, including those made in a documentary.
Lawyer Steve Greenberg offered his most full-throated defence of the Grammywinning recording artist, pictured, since a prosecutor in Chicago this week urged potential victims to come forward after Lifetime aired the documentary
Surviving R Kelly, which revisited old allegations and brought new ones into the light.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Mr Greenberg portrayed Kelly, one of the top-selling recording artists of all time, as a victim of a television hit piece.
“The allegations aren’t true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone,” he said.
