Last week, a tape of R. Kelly reportedly engaged in the sexual abuse of an underage girl was handed in to the authorities, but now attorney Michael Avenatti has claimed that there is now a third tape.
"Update: We have become aware of the existence of a third tape, that allegedly shows further acts of sexual abuse of an underage girl by R Kelly, which we are presently working to recover and turnover to law enforcement," he wrote in a post on Twitter.
Avenatti also posted that R. Kelly rigged the trial back in 2008, where he avoided a lengthy prison sentence for allegedly having sex with an underage girl.
"We have now uncovered how R Kelly was able to gain his acquittal in 2008: We have discovered substantial evidence that he and certain enablers engaged in systematic witness intimidation, evidence tampering, physical threats, and payments to witnesses. They rigged the trial," Avenatti wrote.
The news of more tapes does not come as a surprise to viewers of Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly" series. In the documentary, several sources claimed that Kelly was addicted to filming his sexual acts. It appears that his addiction to recording his alleged rapes will now be his downfall.
