Newly surfaced videotape allegedly featuring R. Kelly is given to authorities by Michael Avenatti

By Elahe Izadi, Sonia Rao and Bethonie Butler February 14 at 6:44 PM

Lawyer Michael Avenatti said Thursday that he has turned over to the Cook County state’s attorney a VHS tape that, according to him, shows R. Kelly engaging in sexual activity with a minor.

The prosecutor’s office would neither confirm nor deny that an investigation was underway, a spokesman said.

Avenatti told The Washington Post that the video, which he said was recorded in Illinois, is a “bombshell” and “the break that prosecutors have needed for the better part of 20 years.” He wrote in a tweeted statement that the depicted acts are within Illinois’ statute of limitations.

Avenatti — known for representing adult-film actress Stormy Daniels in litigation against President Trump — said he represents three clients connected to assault allegations against the R&B musician, including a man who claims he has worked with and known Kelly for years and also knows the identity of the girl on the tape.
