R Kelly ordered to pay victim $300,000 for treatment and therapy

R Kelly

R Kelly, a singer, may be required to pay over $300,000 to one of the young aspiring singers who fell prey to his complex operation to sexually exploit underage minors and young children.

The expense of the person’s herpes treatment and counseling will be covered by a restitution order by U.S. District Judge Ann Connelly, which is still being finalized.

The victim, who wishes to remain unnamed, claims that during one of their interactions, the singer exposed her to the STD.

After being found guilty on numerous charges of racketeering involving bribery and forced labor by a jury in 2021, R Kelly was sentenced to 30 years in prison in June.

He was found guilty of various child pornography and sex assault offenses earlier this month in his hometown of Chicago.

Three counts of child pornography and three counts of child enticement were proven against the Grammy winner.

He was accused of manipulating his state’s child pornography trial in 2008, but the jury exonerated him on a fourth count of pornography and a charge of conspiring to obstruct justice.

He appeared via videolink from a Chicago prison during a hearing at a federal court in Brooklyn.

R Kelly was dubbed “the pied piper of R&B” at his sentencing after meeting with many victims who described his “deplorable and inexplicable” abuse over the course of decades.

The singer, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is well-known for his songs, which include the 1996 hit I Believe I Can Fly and his first number-one single Bump N’ Grind.

The latter developed into an uplifting song that was used at weddings, inaugurations of former U.S. president Barack Obama in 2008, and other events.
