R. Kelly’s Lawyer Spars With Press: "He’s A Rock Star. He Doesn’t Have Nonconsensual Sex"


R. Kelly's lawyer held a press convention in response to his consumer's bond being set on the princely quantity of $1 million. With the media all assembled in a single place, lawyer Steve Greenberg started discrediting his consumer's accusers one after the opposite. 

"On one of many circumstances, there are a variety of interviews the place the younger woman says, 'I lied about how outdated I used to be,'" Greenberg tells reporters on the eight:05 mark of the above video, - "after which lately mentioned, 'Oh no, I lied about mendacity about how outdated I used to be.'"

Soon after making these claims, Jim DeRogatis, an American music critic based mostly out of Chicago, interrupts Greenberg to level out a negligible error, as a result of theoretically talking, the accuser in query did present R. Kelly an ID card, after coming to grips with their dysfunctional association. "Don’t misquote a sufferer, Mr. Greenberg," DeRogatis interjects. "That's not what she mentioned.. she was right here immediately. Did you see her tears?" 

At this level, Greenberg singles DeRogatis out by questioning his objectivity - suggesting the author's upcoming e book on the R. Kelly case, previous and current, is the rationale to imagine he is a part of the opposition social gathering.

"I do not give a fuck about promoting a single e book," DeRogatis fired again. "I've talked to that lady, and I've talked to 47 others. I am not Mr. [Michael] Avenatti and I am not you."

Greenberg finally alleviated the stress by skipping forward within the dialogue. He later reiterated that R. Kelly was a "Rock Star" to cite the 2007 Kellz hit, his level being: "Rock Stars" do not have a necessity for "nonconsensual intercourse," - riddle me that.
