R Kelly sex claims de­nied

The Sunday Times - - WORLD - CHICAGO

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.
