In R. Kelly’s trial on Monday, a guy testified that the singer sexually assaulted him when he was 17 years old.
Kelly allegedly invited him to a studio but instead took him to his home and had oral sex on him, according to him.
Kelly sexually attacked the victim on several times, the man testified.
The first man to publicly accuse R. Kelly of sexual misconduct testified in his federal sex-crimes trial on Monday, alleging that Kelly sexually assaulted him multiple times while he was a 17-year-old high school student.
The man, who used by the alias “Louis,” testified that he met Kelly in 2006 while working the nighttime shift at a McDonald’s drive-thru in suburban Chicago.
Kelly, who was 39 at the time, asked for Louis’ female manager’s phone number and thanked him by handing him a scrap of paper with his own phone number.
Louis, an aspiring R&B musician, texted Kelly – whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly – and was asked to one of the singer’s studios to perform some of the music he had written, according to him.
Louis, on the other hand, did not make much progress.
“He only let it play for five seconds before saying he didn’t like it,” Louis explained.
Louis departed the studio disappointed that “the king of R&B” didn’t care for his song. He continued to text Kelly, however, and subsequently spotted him at a gym near the McDonald’s where he worked in Markham, Illinois.
