It appears that Rober “R.” Kelly’s enablers are having a call of conscience as ex-employees reportedly turned over more than 20 sex tapes to federal authorities.


Gerald Griggs, alleged victim Joycelyn Savage’s family attorney, tells TMZ that the federal investigation into Kelly’s dealings with underage girls included dozens of videos, some of which reportedly show Kelly engaging in explicit and illegal acts with girls not old enough to give consent, handed over by folks who once worked for the embattled R&B crooner.

From TMZ:

Both Griggs and our federal law enforcement sources tell us the tapes show multiple victims...and prosecutors confirmed with multiple witnesses the girls were underage. Griggs says several of Kelly’s enablerspast and presentflipped and turned over the tapes to investigators. He says those videos were exactly what the feds needed to secure indictments for sex crimes, including child pornography.


According to the gossip site, ex-employees claim that the singer regularly recorded his sex acts with both consenting adults and underaged girls.

Kelly was arrested Thursday after a “federal grand jury handed up a 13-count indictment, including 4 counts of producing child pornography and 2 counts of receiving child pornography.”

Kelly is also facing an additional “5-count federal indictment out of the Eastern District of NY which includes racketeering and 4 violations of the Mann Act,” TMZ reports.

_20_ tapes? Unless Robert’s lawyers can somehow make them non-admissible - see ya round, buddy boy. (who sits on these tapes and keeps them for 15 (?) or 20 years? I think if I was sitting on them, at some point I’d just burn them all. I wouldn’t want to hang on to that twisted shit, that could get _me_ in trouble just for having them in my posession.
