Cops check on women staying at R. Kelly's home after anonymous tip

R. Kelly evicted from Near West Side recording studio that doubled as residence

R. Kelly's lawyer spoke out in defense of the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer in a pre-taped interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" this morning.

An attorney for R. Kelly said Friday that the R&B star denies all allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls, including those made in a recent documentary, although he says neither he nor Kelly has watched the entire movie. "I know who's behind it".

"Those who are all appalled and up in arms should respect the fact that police have been there and they've verified that that there's absolutely nothing wrong", Greenberg said.

Greenberg alleged Kelly had "no idea" she was under the age of consent.

Singer R. Kelly attends the Ovadia & Sons front row during New York Fashion Week: Men's S/S 2016 at Skylight Clarkson Sq on July 14, 2015 in New York City.

Greenberg told the Associated Press: 'The allegations aren't true because he never knowingly had sex with an underage woman, he never forced anyone to do anything, he never held anyone captive, he never abused anyone'.

The woman allegedly met R. Kelly in 2017 when she was 19 and he began to groom her to join his sex cult, she told authorities.

"He gets royalties from his songwriting", said Greenberg.

Kelly has been the subject of increasing scrutiny since a Lifetime documentary series aired this month highlighting stories from women that accuse him of sexual abuse.

Earlier this week, Mr Greenberg confirmed that R.Kelly Wednesday late singer Aaliyah, who died in a place crash in 2001, when she was 15 years old and he was 27, saying she lied about her age and likening their marriage to that of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, who was 21 when they married in 1967.

The Cook County state attorney's office said at least two women have since come forward alleging inappropriate conduct by Kelly in 2002 at the warehouse and a home on the South Side in the mid-1980s.

At the same time, Greenberg said he didn't think Kelly's career would be hurt by the allegations.
