Man Testifies Against R. Kelly In Sex-trafficking Trial, Claims Singer Exploited Him As A Teen R. Kelly’s sex-trafficking trial continued on Monday (August 30) as a man took the stand and described in detail how R. Kelly exploited him as a teen.  The man, who is testifying without using his real name, said Kelly made promises to help his music career and asked the then teen what he would do to make it in the business.  The man said he responded, “I’ll carry your bags. … Anything you need, I’ll be willing to do.” He said Kelly replied, “That’s not it…” before asking if he ever fanaticized about having sex with men and then crawling on his knees to perform oral sex on the teen.  In another instance, the man says Kelly summoned a girl who came out from under a boxing ring to give Kelly and the witness oral sex.  The witness testified as part of a cooperation agreement stemming from a guilty plea he received in a separate case where he was accused of being a part of a botched scheme to bribe a woman to not testify against the signer.  What do you think the outcome of R. Kelly’s trial will be?
