R Kelly’s manager, Don Russell has stated that the singer recorded the sex with underaged girls because he didn’t want to experience what Mike Tyson went through that made him end up in jail.
R Kelly is currently facing 10 count charges of sexual abuse involving underaged girls. He recently got arrested and bailed in tune of $100k.
According to Don Russell, the singer is not the monster he is perceived to be by everyone. He stated that the videos were recorded to show that the girls consented to the sex.
“The videos exist, but you have to think about this, Mike Tyson went to jail for what? He couldn’t prove what happened in that room, right? He’s not taping videos because he gets something off from it. He could have sex everyday if he wanted to, he’s R. Kelly. You got to think about that. The only way to prove that it was consensual is maybe for him to tape it. That’s not what he chose to do, he was advised to do so on some occasions.”
R Kelly’s manager went on to question how a 14-year old girl managed to get into the same room with the singer.
“…Whoever let the 14-year-old whatever you guys are saying, whoever let them get in the room…how did they get in there? Why did they get in there?”
R Kelly’s manager concluded by implying that the sex videos were not done because the singer wanted to use them to extort anyone.
“You got Assante McGee, who’s got, what, seven felonies? For extortion, for bribery, for theft. Why is her rap sheet not in question right now? Why is she not the person people are looking at thinking she might have extorted him?”
