No Good For R. Kelly: One of Accuser From Documentary Testifies Before Federal Grand Jury
The Women Come Forward…In Court
One of R. Kelly’s alleged victims from Lifetimes Docu-Series “Surviving R. Kelly” has come forward. Faith Rodgers has testified against the singer in front of a federal grand jury. Her testimony could not only indict him for tax evasion but also sex trafficking.
Sources say Faith Rodgers recently testified for a grand jury convened by U.S. Attorneys in the Southern District of New York. It has been said that more witnesses are expected to testify against Kelly in the near future.
Unfortunately we have no idea what Faith actually told the panel. Federal grand jury proceedings are set up to be discreetly top secret. However she has previously alleged Kelly gave her an STD. Also last year she sued him for false imprisonment and sexual battery. So our guess is that will probably be the bulk of her testimony.
Faith has become well known from Lifetime docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly”. Not too long after the premiere she claimed Kelly posted private photos of her. On top of that, he allegedly sent a notarized letter threatening to reveal details of her sex life. Supposedly all in retaliation for her speaking out publicly against him.
It has been reported, there are to Kelly probes currently underway in New York. One in the Eastern District and the other in the Southern District. Those are not even related to the case the feds are building against him in Illinois.
Next week witnesses will be testifying before a federal grand jury in Illinois. Remember Kelly is also being investigated for tax evasion, obstruction of justice and sex trafficking in his hometown.
So far the U.S. Attorney’s Office has declined to comment on the situation. Gloria Allred, Faith’s attorney, would not confirm or deny her client testified.
