R Kelly: CNN has seen tape Avenatti says shows singer having sex with underage girl - CNN
Kelly assaulting an underage girl, attorney Michael Avenatti said. The video is 42 minutes long and was not previously known to the public or to law enforcement, Avenatti said in a statement. The two perform sex acts and the man asks the girl or woman to urinate, according to CNN. She does, and the man then urinates on her. But Kelly could soon be indicted and arrested, a senior law official told reporter Jim DeRogatis. After the docuseries came out, Foxx said families of some missing women who are linked to Kelly reached out to her office. A different video, which allegedly showed a man assaulting and peeing on an underage girl, led to Kelly being charged with child pornography.

In the courtroom, the lights were dimmed and blinds drawn across windows. There were several other monitors in the room, including one facing the crowded gallery. A grim, intent Kelly watched the whole video on a small monitor placed on the defense table, only occasionally averting his eyes.
