CHICAGO | The Latest: Avenatti: Notion victims are lying ‘outrageous’
CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on the sexual abuse case against R&B singer R. Kelly (all times local):
Lawyer Michael Avenatti says it’s “outrageous” that R. Kelly’s attorney questions whether the singer’s accusers are telling the truth about being sexually abused by the R&B singer.
Avenatti, who says he represents two Kelly victims and gave prosecutors new video evidence of Kelly having sex with an underage girl, said Saturday that, “We’re going to do everything in our power … to make sure 2019 is not a repeat of 2008.”
He was referring to Kelly’s 2008 child pornography trial, in which the singer was acquitted.
