R. Kelly has amped up efforts to fight the man who says the performer ruined his marriage by infecting his wife with a grotty disease.
Find out how below…
A man named Kenny Bryant is suing Kelly for ruining his marriage (legal in the state of Mississippi) and causing him immeasurable danger by exposing his wife to chlamydia.
Kelly claims he did not have an affair with Bryant’s wife but, as the legal pressure he is facing descends up on him, has stepped towards a lawyer he hopes will help win the case and bury the embarrassing story.
The only trouble? Said lawyer represented Bryant’s ex-wife, Asia Bryant-Childress, during their divorce proceedings.
Bryant said this in the legal documents he filed to have Felecia Perkins removed from the case:
In the course of her representation of Ms. Childress, Ms. Perkins would have participated in conversations with her client and others about the circumstances leading up to and resulting in her desire to end her marriage to Mr. Bryant.
On information and belief, these conversations included conversations about Ms. Childress’s sexual relationship with R. Kelly, and further included numerous conversations with R. Kelly and/or his representatives, as well as other witnesses.
Put simply, he sees that there is a conflict of interest and believes Kelly should use another lawyer to represent him as he seeks damages for his loss of a “spouse, love, support and conjugal affection.”
A judge is yet to rule.
