Two more survivors came forward on Monday as the R. Kelly federal child pornography trial in Chicago entered week three. “Tracy” and “Pauline” detail their encounters with the singer during their testimonies.
On Monday, two more survivors alleged that R. Kelly engaged them in sexual acts while they were underage.
The R. Kelly federal child pornography trial in Chicago entered week three, as reported by Rolling Stone.
“Pauline” was 14 years old, while “Tracy” was 16 when Kelly first allegedly propositioned them.
At the same time, they both had claimed their respective love for him was the initial reason they did not detail events to authorities.
Pauline, now 37, said she met R. Kelly via “Jane,” who was her “best friend.”
She then testified that one of her first sexual encounters with Kelly occurred at one of the disgraced singer’s homes after walking in on Rob kneeling in front of Jane.
Jane was naked, and Pauline was told he[Kelly] was looking for bruises on Jane after she hurt herself. She was also told by him that “we all have secrets.”
Kelly encouraged Pauline to kiss Jane, to which she did, and afterward, engaged in touching and oral sex.
She also testified that the threesomes would later include another best friend, “Brittany,” and that these encounters occurred “multiple times.”
Within the testimony, Kelly would also give them alcohol and engage in sexual acts between her and Kelly. These incidents had occurred at one of his homes, the Chicago Trax studio, and on his tour bus both in and out of state.
By the time Pauline was 15, she had testified that the sexual encounters progressed to sexual intercourse.
Kelly would also videotape these encounters; Pauline stole one of these videotapes that had been kept in a gym bag, but she later gave it back to him.
When Pauline was 20, she said he “was not being a good boyfriend,” so she pretended she was “Brittany” to call him for money. “He called it [being an] extortionist,” Pauline explained during her testimony.. “I call it ‘Don’t play with me.’”
“Pauline” then added: “It was just a threat… It wasn’t about the money,” but instead about wanting attention from her boyfriend.
When asked why she is just now giving her testimony to underage accusations, she told authorities she was in a different place in life, but that “I loved him, I still love him.”
The other victim, Tracy, now 40, had said she met Kelly at 16 years old in 1999 when she interned for a record label and first met the singer at a gym called Hoops.
Tracy and her boss had landed at Kelly’s Chicago Trax recording studio, where she alleged that she rebuffed his early advances. Still, after running into him at an expo with a friend, he handed them his number, and they later called.
In her testimony, Tracy told him she was 16, and he was 23; she also claimed that he started kissing her and “when I looked down, he had exposed himself.”
Tracy also added that he pleasured himself.
After he ejaculated, he was apologetic, told her he had “never done something like that before,” and around a week later, she alleged he “forced himself” on her in a hotel room.
Tracy also claimed that later that summer, they had sexual intercourse for the first time in his studio, as well as detailed other encounters such as participating in a threesome with Jane and Kelly at the alleged behest of Kelly, which he had filmed.
“I was crying, and he told me to stop being a baby,” she said.
A civil lawsuit was filed against Kelly in 2001 and was settled out of court for $250,000. Tracy claimed she did not receive the full settlement.
Robert Kelly, Derrel McDavid, and Milton “June” Brown have all been charged with receiving child pornography, this was allegedly an attempt to recover missing tapes that showed Kelly having sex with minors.
Kelly and McDavid are also tasked with charges for obstruction of justice; these have been connected to accusations that they had paid off people aware of the alleged abuse.
This also includes them trying to interfere with the 2008 child pornography investigation.
All three entered a not guilty plea.
