On Sunday (March 10), attorney Gloria Allred held a press conference in New York City with the guy who claims he was unwittingly in possession of the footage. Gary Dennis alleges he has no connection to Kelly but says he recently found a VHS tape marked as a "sports tape" which also had the singer's name labeled on it.
Dennis told the press he thought the tape would feature footage of an R. Kelly concert, but instead, the recording showcased a man bearing a striking resemblance to the singer engaging in sexual activities with several underaged black girls.
Dennis said the tape appeared to be recorded in the 1990s but could not identify the location. During the press conference, Allred reportedly confirmed the alleged sex tape was turned over to law enforcement officials from U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York. The famed attorney, who also represents two other women alleging sexual abuse by Kelly, said she believes more child pornography tapes featuring the disgraced R&B singer are out there.
Attorney Micheal Avenatti has also turned over two sex tapes which he claims shows Kelly engaging in sexual acts with minors. Still, Kelly has repeatedly denied having sexual relationships with underage girls over the years.
In February, the "I Admit" singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four women, of three who were minors at the time. Kelly turned himself into authorities and spent a weekend in jail after failing to pay $100k bond. He pleaded not guilty and was eventually released after a "friend" helped him make bond.
Kelly was taken in custody on Wednesday (March 6) after failing to pay close to $200k in back child support. This time, he spent three days in jail because of his financial woes. On Saturday (March 9), Kelly was released thanks to an unidentified source who paid off his debt. He faces up to 70 years in prison if found guilty for his recent criminal charges.
