R. Kelly has been accused more inappropriate sexual contact with underage women. Latresa Scaff and Rochelle Washington got here ahead at a press conference in New York City on Thursday to reveal new allegations sexual assault and harassment by Kelly. The two ladies, represented by Gloria Allred, say they attended an R. Kelly and LL Cool J live performance on the Baltimore Arena (now Royal Farms Arena) in 1995, after they had been each 16 and 15, respectively. They say they had been picked from the gang at an afterparty, the place they had been allegedly given alcohol and medicines, and invited again to a lodge suite the place they had been instructed by one Kelly’s handlers to “pull up their] attire.” Kelly then allegedly entered the room together with his “penis out and over the] prime his pants.”
Scaff claims that Kelly “put his fingers underneath my costume” and requested the teenagers to have a threesome with him, which Washington declined, hiding within the toilet. “You’re not gonna please me?” he allegedly later requested. Scaff says Kelly then requested her to carry out oral intercourse on him, which she did, and proceeded to have intercourse along with her. At the time, Scaff says she was underneath the affect marijuana and alcohol and couldn’t give consent. (The age consent in Maryland is 16.) She says the 2 ladies by no means noticed him once more. According to Allred, each ladies might be talking with regulation enforcement on Thursday.
Kelly is currently under investigation in at the very least three states, together with Georgia, Illinois, and New York. Most lately, new video proof was introduced to Chicago prosecutors showing Kelly allegedly having sex with another minor on tape; an indictment is predicted in that case.
