Oh Brother: More R Kelly Trouble
His brother makes shocking claims, hot and fresh out the kitchen...
Report from mtv.com in the US
R. Kelly once again finds himself in the criminal spotlight, this time due to serious allegations made by his own brother.
A few years back a rumor circulated that R. Kelly planned to claim that it was actually his brother featured on the sex tape that prompted child-pornography charges against the singer. But R. Kelly's younger brother has a tape, and a few claims, of his own.
R. Kellys brother Carey Kelly has resurfaced in a new low-budget DVD in which he puts forth a number of allegations against his more famous brother. Chief among them, Carey says R. offered him $50,000, a record deal and a house if he would lie on the witness stand.
"I got a call about a year and a half ago," Carey says on the DVD, released this week in the US. "My brother wanted me to do some sh*t pertaining to this case that would leave me behind bars with a record deal. It doesn't make sense, so I turned it down. Since I couldn't lie for him in a court of law, we're back to beefing again, and we ain't brothers no more."
Carey also claims that R. abuses his wife, tried to molest their other brother's daughter and molested their 12-year-old second cousin. And as if that isnt enough, Carey also says that R. Kelly is bisexual. "He in the closet for real," he said on Hot 97 radio show.
In response, an R. Kelly Spokesperson said only: "This is not the first time Carey has made ridiculous accusations against his brother.
"We're not going to dignify them with a comment."
