As recent information suggests that R&B star R. Kelly may soon find himself under even stricter observation than before because federal agents have reasons to suspect he is planning to exact revenge on some of the key witnesses in his trial.
Kelly’s fist raised the suspicions of the federal authorities with his continuous efforts to find out the real names of Jane Doe 2 and Jane Doe 3, who reportedly testified in court because they were sexually mistreated by the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer in the past.
Currently, federal agents hold the theory that the 52-year-old singer and songwriter may seek revenge and give orders to people loyal to him to harm the witnesses in some manner, so they do not testify later.
This is not the first time it is believed that Kelly was plotting retaliation against people who spoke against him, as the star’s former manager, Jason Mason, was suspected in intimidating one of his alleged victims.
Furthermore, Derrel Mc David, who also worked for the singer in the past, was accused of covering up the criminal activities of the R&B legend as well as paying hush money to girls that were mistreated, so they do not talk about it to the public.
The lead federal prosecutors on Kelly’s case, Richard P. Donoghue, claimed that the defendant had the motives to tamper with the witnesses because the lack of them could result in a shortened sentence for him.
Donoghue also stated that the singer still had access to significant resources and people who followed his commands.
Donoghue stated: “There is a significant incentive for the defendant to tamper with witnesses in order to try to avoid spending a significant period of time in prison.”
One person said: “I’m watching this documentary about R. Kelly. Why the fuck isn’t this old man Demetrious Smith in jail by now. He was an enabler of child rape and abuse. He protected R Kelly, and he knew about it the whole time. He forged papers for him to marry a minor… lock his old ass up and let him rot in jail.”
Meanwhile, it is being claimed that Kelly, known as a prolific writer for over 25 years, is hard at work behind bars and is cooking up tracks and is said to be in good spirits despite the drama.
