If you haven’t heard about R. Kelly and his “cult,” you must be living under a rock. This story is blowing up incredibly fast and things just keep getting bigger. While Kelly has stayed quiet for the most part, he recently made a strategic move that makes a lot of people think he’s not innocent. The story keeps unfolding, and it’s getting worse for R. Kelly.
R. Kelly is in the middle of some serious accusations. He’s being accused of running a secret cult that sounds pretty sketchy. No matter what you believe, you have to admit that it’s pretty weird to hear, especially about a guy who allegedly had a sex tape with a 14-year-old back in the day.
In order to defend himself, R. Kelly has started to assemble his legal team. If you paid attention to Bill Cosby’s situation, you might hear some familiar names.
Kelly recently hired Monique Pressley, who just got done representing Bill Cosby as his attorney. Pressley was representing Cosby throughout his troubles with all of his sexual assault cases over the past few years.
She was the leader of the countersuit against seven different women who were accusing him. At one point, she even sat down and did an interview with Marc Lamont Hill, host of HuffPost Live.
She said that if the Cosby women were serious about wanting justice they should have reported immediately. “Report, go to the hospital… do all of the things that rape counseling centers tell women to do immediately,” she said.
