American R&B singer Robert Kelly popularly known in music circles as R Kelly has kicked against a judgement ruling in favour of women who claimed they were victimized by him.
In the court judgment against R Kelly, six women were awarded $10.5 million in August after suing him and his former manager, Donnell Russell, claiming they were responsible for an effort to shut down a December 2018 NYC screening of the ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ docuseries with a mass shooting threat.
The troubled musician who reacted to the judgement in a recent statement said that he would have defended himself against the lawsuit if he knew about it.
He further stated that his head is already spinning over his various criminal cases and prosecutions, and he’s been sued so many times lately that he can hardly keep up with it all from his prison cell in North Carolina were he is being detained.
R Kelly added that even if the lawsuit was delivered, he wouldn’t be able to understand it or distinguish it from any other legal documents as he relies on his lawyers to explain things to him because “he cannot read or understand words beyond that of a grade-schooler.”
