A newly-discovered sex tape allegedly featuring R. Kelly having sex with younger women has been turned over to authorities.
A man named Gary Dennis claims to have been going through a collection of old sports tapes when he found VHS footage of the ‘Ignition’ singer “sexually abusing underage African-American girls” and has now handed it over to the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. According to Complex, “if Kelly is indeed the culprit, this would be the third tape given to law enforcement where the singer recorded himself having sex with underage women. The first two tapes were turned over to Chicago authorities by Attorney Michael Avenatti. Avenatti’s tapes are said to be “clear and explicit” evidence of Kelly’s behavior with one 42 minutes and 45 seconds video prompting a 10 count indictment against the singer. ”
Gary Dennis, the man who find the shocking videos addressed a room of members of the press revealing the shocking turn of events that led him to find the disturbing video. According to Bang Showbiz Dennis explained in a press conference in Manhattan alongside his lawyer, Gloria Allred: “Recently, I came across a box of VHS tapes that I have had in my home for many years. I love sports. And I was searching through the box to see which old tapes I wanted to keep, and which ones I wanted to throw out.
“I noticed a sports tape, but it also had R. Kelly’s name on it. I thought it was a recording of an R. Kelly concert. I watched the sports on the tape, then continued to watch what I thought would be an R. Kelly concert.
“To my shock and surprise, R. Kelly appeared to be on the tape, but not in concert. Instead, he was sexually abusing underage African-American girls. He was telling them what to do and what to say and it appeared that he was in control of the camera.”
The lawyer insisted her client and his wife “don’t know the answer of how it came into that box of many VHS tapes he has over the years”.
She added: “There had been friends who gave him sports tapes. He has no idea. He’s tried to think about it and…no idea. These are very old tapes… Mr. Dennis has never met Mr. Kelly, has never had any communication with Mr. Kelly and has never attended an R. Kelly concert.”
The couple assumed the girls in the video were underage because they “were not fully developed”.
Chicago Prosecutors have said in recent court documents there is already a recording of one alleged encounter between Kelly and an underage victim, but Gloria said she didn’t believe the new tape matched that one described.
Gary called for anyone else in possession of an R. Kelly sex tape to come forward.
He said: “We have heard that there may be many VHS tapes in circulation that…depict Mr. Kelly sexually abusing underage girls. We hope that anyone who may have possession of such tapes will contact Ms. [Allred] and turn over the tapes immediately. I can’t get the memory out of my head. I just can’t. It stays with me constantly.”
As earlier reported by The Sauce, the ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ singer is currently facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse in connection to three girls and one woman but has denied the allegations against him. The Grammy-winner also made headlines days ago after being arrested yet again for unpaid child support. According to The Sauce, “The 52-year-old singer was set free from Cook County jail on Saturday (09.03.19) afternoon after he raised the funds needed to pay his debt to his ex-wife Andrea Lee. At the time of his arrest on Wednesday (06.03.19), a spokesperson for the Cook County Sheriff’s Office confirmed he had been taken into police custody after a court hearing, during which he allegedly tried to work out a payment plan with the judge, but was denied.”
