More allegations regarding the controversial R & B singer, R. Kelly, have come through. According to a report from BET.com, two young women claim R. Kelly drugged and raped one of them when they were between the ages of 15 and 16.
The two women, Rochelle Washington, and Latresa Scaff claim that they went to an R. Kelly concert in Baltimore back in 1995 and in 1996. Scaff claims she was given marijuana, alcohol, as well as cocaine by the singer and he raped her afterward.
Washington, on the other hand, refused to have a threesome with the R & B singer and sat in the bathroom while it occurred. Gloria Allred, their attorney, accompanied Scaff during a press conference in which she accused R. Kelly of giving them drugs and alcohol before raping her.
This comes just a week after CNN claims that R. Kelly was accused of engaging in additional sex acts with a minor on videotape. R. Kelly has faced charges like these before, and reports have it that his old co-worker actually gave up the tape in an attempt to bring him down.
R. Kelly’s situation became much worse when Lifetime aired the controversial documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, in which he was accused by many in the industry of being a predatory man. John Legend was one man in the documentary among Chance The Rapper as well.
It has been rumored that the allegations against R. Kelly also spurred Amazon to stop working with Woody Allen. Allen is currently suing Amazon for approximately $68,000,000 for bailing on a four-movie contract.
While the charges against R. Kelly and Allen are different, they both come as a part of the #MeToo movement which began in November of 2017. As it was noted above, R. Kelly faced a similar case in which he was exonerated in 2008. The court couldn’t prove that it was in fact, R. Kelly, on the videotape.
At the moment, the R & B singer is reportedly facing against approximately 10 different aggravated assault charges. It’s clear the police are doing everything they can to find at least some charges that stick.
