It Just Got Worse For R. Kelly…More Federal Indictments Reportedly Coming His Way Soon
As the intense hunt for R. Kelly’s alleged stash of sex tapes, involving underaged girls seemingly runs dry, the “Bump N’ Grind” crooner is getting hit from another angle that could have equally harsh criminal consequences.
As we previously reported, in addition to the 10-count sex abuse felony charges R. Kelly is already facing in Chicago, IL, law officials were turning up the heat on sex trafficking and tax evasion investigation into Kelly, in the Northern District of Illinois and the Southern District of New York.
The Expected Charges…
Fast forward to a couple months later, and now ICE Homeland Security is close to finishing up their investigation. According to sources close to the situation, the department is expected to hit Kelly with multiple federal indictments within a few weeks.
The charges are expected to include sex trafficking and tax evasion charges. Sources also say that several witnesses have been interviewed in the case throughout the past few months and officials believe they now have enough evidence to take their findings in front of a grand jury.
The tax evasion charge is pretty simple- they suspect that R. Kelly didn’t pay his taxes for a lengthy period of time, ’nuff said.
The sex trafficking charge is a tadbit interesting though. ICE is reportedly investigating whether or not the 52 year old “Seems Like You’re Ready” O.G. flew either of his two barely legal 20-something year old girlfriends, across state lines when they were teenagers. According to reports, the family of his girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage, has provided ICE much of the findings needed to bring charges against Kelly, such as plane tickets, text messages, photos, etc..
