Don Russell, the manager and close friend of embattled singer R Kelly, has risen to his defense by stating that the singer recorded the sex tapes with underaged girls because of Mike Tyson.
According to Don Russell, R Kelly is not the monster everyone thinks he is. He stated that the singer recorded the tapes to prove all that happened was consented to.
R Kelly is currently facing 10 count charges of sexual abuse.
“The videos exist, but you have to think about this, Mike Tyson went to jail for what? He couldn’t prove what happened in that room, right? He’s not taping videos because he gets something off from it. He could have sex every day if he wanted to, he’s R. Kelly. You got to think about that. The only way to prove that it was consensual is maybe for him to tape it. That’s not what he chose to do, he was advised to do so on some occasions,” Don Russell said.
He continued by questioning how a 14-year old got into the room with the singer.
“…Whoever let the 14-year-old whatever you guys are saying, whoever let them get in the room…how did they get in there? Why did they get in there?”
He concluded by stating that the whole thing is not about extortion.
“You got Assante McGee, who’s got, what, seven felonies? For extortion, for bribery, for theft. Why is her rap sheet not in question right now? Why is she not the person people are looking at thinking she might have extorted him?”
