Deja vu—a new sex tape involving R. Kelly and an underaged girl has reportedly surfaced. And it’s been turned over to the police.


It was 2002 when news of a leaked sex tape unleashed into the world, with commentary further exacerbated by three things: R. Kelly was accused of being on the tape. The other person in the tape was alleged to be teenager. Urination was involved.

Now, in 2019, we have another tape. According to CNN, lawyer Michael Avenatti has confirmed his client—described as a “whistleblower” against Kelly—has identified R. Kelly and a teen girl in the video.

“My client knows the identity of the girl and R. Kelly. He identified the two of them on the videotape. He worked for and has known R. Kelly for decades and he met the girl on a number of occasions,” noted Avenatti.

Here’s the plot twist—CNN reports to have witnessed the footage on the tape.

Per CNN:

CNN has seen the VHS tape that appears to show Kelly having sex with a girl who refers to her body parts as 14 years old. Avenatti, who is representing a man he calls a whistleblower against Kelly, says he handed the tape to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Chicago last weekend.

The tape reportedly is a duration of 42 minutes and 45 seconds.

CNN describes the footage as follows:

The newly unearthed footage, which lasts 42 minutes and 45 seconds, is clear and explicit.

There are two scenes on the video: one apparently in a living room and another in a bedroom. A naked man who appears to be R. Kelly is seen performing multiple sex acts with the girl. She is heard calling him “daddy” multiple times.

It is impossible to know her age just from the video. They both refer to her “14-year-old p***y.” Six times the girl refers to her genitalia as 14 years old.

At one point, the man asks the girl to urinate. After she does, he urinates on her.


“We are unaware of any new information involving Mr. Kelly,” said Steve Greenberg, R. Kelly’s attorney. “We have not been contacted by anyone. We have not been informed about any new information by anyone and we have not been contacted by law enforcement.”

The similarities are eerie, to say the least. Let’s see if that sense of deja vu happens in every aspect of this increasingly disturbing situation...

Gahh.. I’m glad I’m not the law enforcement person who gets tasked with looking at these tapes and stuff. Must be brutal seeing that stuff all the time. I think I would get depressed, and I don’t know if I’d come out the other side.

Just a personal thought, without even imagining I’m one of the girls in a tape like this. They say Jesus forgives all... I hope that ain’t so. For all those that cape for Kelly, what’s wrong wit’ y’all?
