Embattled R n B singer, R.Kelly and his manager, Donnell Russell have been dragged to court by his s3x abuse accusers for allegedly trying to intimidate them with tactics that include calling in a shooting threat to a theatre premiering a documentary about the singer.
In new court papers, Lizette Martinez, Lisa Van Allen and Faith Rogers who claim they were s3xually abused by the 54-year-old convict, alleged that “Kelly and his inner circle … began an orchestrated effort to silence, harass, bribe and intimidate those brave young women and their friends and family.”
Russell was accused of making a series of threats to try to prevent the 2018 premiere of docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly” from going forward, the court papers from Monday claim.
“Defendants used escalating methods of intimidation moving from legal to terroristic in a matter of hours,” the suit claimed, noting that before the call came in, a cease-and-desist letter was sent by Kelly’s people to stop the series from airing.
In the lawsuit filed at the Manhattan Supreme Court, it was stated that the theater threat will leave a lasting emotional mark on the women who “were understandably terrified and exposed.”
46-year-old Russell was arrested last year for allegedly making the anonymous threat to the Neuehouse theater on Dec. 4, 2018, causing an evacuation and derailing the show’s screening. The case is pending trial.
Russell and two other men, Richard Arline and Michael Williams, were also accused of trying to intimidate and bribe Kelly’s victims. Both Arline and Williams pleaded guilty in the case.
It was also alleged that the defendants knew about Kelly’s abuse of women but didn’t do anything to help them, “likely to protect the R. Kelly brand, name, reputation, image, and continued fame, success, and financial benefit.”
The suit added;
“Defendants were also aware of and acted in furtherance to engage in acts to intimidate, silence, threatened and physical (and sexually) assault women who disclosed Kelly’s misconduct.”
The lawsuit further claimed that Kelly and his companies should have known what Russell was capable of and should have protected the women who were coming forward with their stories of abuse. Kelly and his companies were however accused of fostering “an environment where criminal misconduct was a normal course of agents’ … performance obligations.”
The singer’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean however told Page Six, “this lawsuit in no way connects Mr. Kelly to the alleged intentional acts of Donnell Russell.”
“These are just allegations and when the facts are demonstrated, what the public will learn is that Mr. Kelly had no role in directing harassment or intimidation of any potential witness or individuals.”Follow Us On Social Media 👇
