The R. Kelly saga continues.
Two more women have accused R. Kelly of sexual misconduct. On Thursday (February 21st) the women, identified as Latrice and Rochelle, held a press conference where they told their stories. The women, who are represented by Gloria Allred, claimed that the singer gave them drugs and alcohol when they were a teenager and then took advantage of them.
The act allegedly took place in 1995.
Latrice, who was 16, and Rochelle, who was 15, say they were invited to the singer’s hotel after an R. Kelly and LL Cool J concert in Baltimore. They were allegedly given drugs and alcohol. Kelly allegedly entered the hotel room with his penis exposed, and tried to coax the teenagers into a threesome. Rochelle denied the request and went to the bathroom. Kelly allegedly started having intercourse with Latrice. About the encounter Latrice said:
I did not have the capacity to consent…When I met him, I was happy because I was young and starstruck. However, now that I’m an adult, I feel hurt by what he did to me, when I was only 16 years old and under the influence of alcohol and marijuana, which was given to me at that party.
During the press conference, Allred said the women will be speaking with law enforcement. This news comes a week after lawyer Michael Avenatti handed over a new sex tape to Cook County’s State Attorney’s Office.
