A Mississippi man has filed a lawsuit against R. Kelly for allegedly popping on a little 12 Play and doing a little bumping and grinding with his wife.


Deputy Kenneth Bryant, with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department, says his wife, Asia Childress, was in a relationship with R. Kelly before Bryant and Childress’ July 15, 2012, wedding, WAPT reports. But apparently Kelly put his key back into her ignition after she attended a concert in October 2012.

In the lawsuit (pdf), filed April 21 in Circuit Court, Bryant states that his wife talked him into moving to Atlanta to further his career, but as it turns out, she only wanted to be closer to Kelly.

“Each time R. Kelly would have a concert in a nearby state, Childress would disappear to unite with her lover,” the lawsuit alleges. “Time after time, R. Kelly cuckolded Bryant, with blatant disregard for Bryant’s and Childress’ vows.”

To top it off, Bryant charges that his move to Atlanta hurt him in the pockets and that he took a huge loss financially. Let me not forget to mention, Bryant alleges that Kelly gave his wife chlamydia.

Bryant is seeking compensatory and punitive damages of an undisclosed amount and hopes to “punish [R. Kelly], make an example of him to others, and to deter him and other similarly situated defendants from engaging in adulterous conduct in the future, in the service of public interest.”

Rarely Sober Insomniac

My first, knee-jerk take-away? It take’s two to tango, and the cuckolded husband is placing all of the punitive blame on R Kelly. Unless he is also trying to receive financial compensation from his wife for the moving and the crotch-rot I’m not seeing this as working out for him judicially.

Divorce your wife, get some treatment, and try to move on with this as a learning experience. Trying to place yourself in the role of the hero who must battle for the sake of “public interest” because your spouse cheated on you isn’t going to fly, online or in the court system.
