R. Kelly’s continues to go downhill after the singer failed to appear at court to address a civil lawsuit brought against him.
Hollywood Unlocked reports that on Tuesday, the judge over the lawsuit declared a default judgment against the disgraceful singer. The women confirmed that she is one of the accusers in the ongoing criminal case against R. Kelly. The woman filed the civil suit in February, alleging that Kelly sexually abused her from the time she was 16 in 1998. Kelly was served a summons in Cook County jail, as he was being held on charges of failing to pay over $160,000 in back child support.
“Commencing in or about June 1998 and thereafter until she was of the age of majority, defendant, Robert Sylvester Kelly, sexually abused plaintiff,” the lawsuit claims. “Specifically, defendant, Robert Sylvester Kelly, had sexual intercourse with the minor plaintiff. The defendant also engaged in oral sex with the minor plaintiff.”
Lawyers for the plaintiff state that since the lawsuit was filed in February, R. Kelly has ignored all court summonses.
“Robert Sylvester Kelly has failed and refused to file an appearance or answer to the Complaint even though [he is] required to do so,” the attorneys wrote.
