Gloria Allred to Represent Several R. Kelly Accusers

Renowned feminist lawyer Gloria Allred is presenting multiple women who claim to have been sexually abused by singer R. Kelly.

Allred, who is also representing an accuser who alleges the singer used intimidation tactics to try to silence her, said at a press conference Monday that she and her clients want to make it clear to Kelly, 52, that he “cannot and will not intimidate” any of his accusers into silence.

“It seems that Mr. Kelly is taking his playbook from Donald Trump, who threatened to sue the women who came forward during the campaign to speak about his behavior towards them,” Allred said. “In fact, although it may be a coincidence, Mr. Kelly was recently confronted by the police at Trump Tower in Chicago where he was residing.”

Although TMZ reported Friday that police made contact with Kelly and two women at his residence after receiving an anonymous tip, the women claim they were voluntarily staying with the R&B superstar.

Kelly, who famously was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008 after a video surfaced purportedly showing the singer having sex with an underage girl, has been under fire since this month’s airing of “Surviving R. Kelly,” a six-part documentary detailing years of sexual abuse allegations against him.
