Last week it was rumored that alleged victims of R. Kelly reportedly testified in front of a grand jury that the singer transported them across state lines for sex while they were underage.
According to TMZ.com, a former employee also testified and confirmed the existence of several sex tapes involving underage girls.
“Sources directly connected to the case tell TMZ ... the ex-employee testified in front of a federal grand jury in the Northern District of Illinois Thursday – and claims to have been in possession of multiple tapes in which the singer engages in sex acts with minors,” The celebrity news and gossip site said. “We're told the former employee told grand jurors R. Kelly paid a large sum of cash to the employee and in return, the employee handed a tape over to the singer. We're told somehow the tape in question ended up in the hands of Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx. Our sources say the ex-employee testified they gave the feds several other child sex tapes featuring Kelly.
“We're [also] told the former employee said R. Kelly's crew knew full-well Kelly had a penchant for having sex with underage girls, but rather than blow the whistle on him, they actually helped the singer procure young girls.”
