R Kelly’s God daughter testified in Court; says he slept with her countles

The woman at the centre of R. Kelly’s legal troubles for more than two decades has testified in court on Thursday, August 18.

According to her, the R&B singer has slept with her ‘hundreds’ of times before she turned 18 years old, starting when she was just 15.

The now 37-year-old woman, with the pseudonym Jane, has been pivotal to the child pornography and obstruction of justice charges against the singer. She told the court that in the late 1990s when she was 13, she asked the Grammy award-winning singer to be her godfather because she saw him as a mentor.

According to her, a few weeks after, R Kelly started calling her to say sexual things. She said the ‘Trap In The Closet’ singer first touched her breasts when she was around 14 at a Chicag recording studio, and that around that time, he ‘started penetration’ at his North Side Chicago home.

Jane further revealed that she was 15 years old when she first had intercourse with the now 55-year who was around 30 years old at the time. “Sometimes, they would have sex with other teenage girls she would recruit at Kelly’s request” she testified,


With Jane’s Thursday testimony, R Kelly stands charged in Chicago federal court with enticing minors for sex, producing child pornography and rigging his 2008 pornography trial. Lawyers for the alleged victim allege that R. Kelly also paid off and threatened Jane and her family to ensure that she didn’t testify at a similar 2008 trial.

Accordingly, she didn’t testify and R Kelly was ultimately acquitted. Presently, the American singer is serving a 30-year prison sentence for his conviction in a New York court earlier this year on other federal charges alleging he used his fame to sexually abuse fans over several decades.

Commenting on her meeting R Kelly was like to her at that time, she said “It made me feel happy that such a successful person was saying I was gifted, so I was excited,”. Testifying to the Chicago Tribune, she said her aunt then advised her to ask Kelly to be her godfather. According to her, her aunt said “I should sit on his lap and rub his head and ask him to play that role in my life“.

But soon the relationship became sexual. In at least one case, WGN-TV reports her to have recounted that R Kelly asked her what was the colour of her underwear and told her he was pleasuring himself as they spoke.

It is reported that Kelly gave her alcohol for the first time when she was 14 and Jane began drinking heavily. “It would help me loosen up, kind of take me away from the moment,” she said.

From there, Jane said, they would have intercourse in Kelly’s home on West George Street, at his Near West Side recording studio, on tour buses and in hotels. Asked how many times they had sex before she turned 18, she answered quietly: “Uncountable times…hundreds“.


Unlike at the 2008 trial, Jane is now cooperating with prosecutors and is a pivotal witness.

Ex-husband drags Xandy Kamel on social media again

"I was still in my wedding gown when the marital problems began." People began phoning to tell me they were having an affair with my husband. In my marriage, I've only felt happy for 5 minutes. We didn't even have sex. "I think we made love about six times in our one year together," a depressed Xandy admitted. Kaninja claims the marriage collapsed because Xandy was more preoccupied with her lesbian lovers rather than their marriage. He added that his ex-wife portraying the victim is merely a front to hide her embarrassment. Kaninja stated that Xandy is unsuitable for marriage since she cannot even arrange her matrimonial bed or clean.

King Kaninja, the ex-husband of actress Xandy Kamel, has reacted to charges that his casual attitude and infidelity spree ended their two-year marriage.

His recent outburst comes in response to an interview Xandy gave on Delay Show, in which she declared, among other things, that she was the family earner, rented their house, and paid all the expenses.

She also said she had over GH30,000 in her account at the time of her wedding, but that amount had been reduced to barely over GH100 in two years.

Xandy also discussed the trauma she faced in her marriage, which cost her two pregnancies.

“I was still in my wedding gown when the marital problems began.” People began phoning to tell me they were having an affair with my husband. In my marriage, I’ve only felt happy for 5 minutes. We didn’t even have sex. “I think we made love about six times in our one year together,” a depressed Xandy admitted.

Kaninja claims the marriage collapsed because Xandy was more preoccupied with her lesbian lovers rather than their marriage.

He added that his ex-wife portrayed the victim as merely a front to hide her embarrassment.

Kaninja stated that Xandy is unsuitable for marriage since she cannot even arrange her matrimonial bed or clean it.

Even routine household duties, he claimed Xandy’s mother was doing.

Kaninja, who had opted not to respond, stated that he felt compelled to clear his name.

He claims he hasn’t spoken up because he doesn’t want to get involved in the dirt like his ex-wife.

“The reason I don’t pay attention to some of this news is that eagles and pigs aren’t natural enemies.” Pigs adore playing in the mud, therefore there is no need to accompany them there. “When you follow them, you become dirty like them,” he grumbled.

Kaninja stated that if Xandy did not stop firing, he would be forced to unleash all of the bombshells.
