In court papers, R. Kelly referred to his alleged victims as “disgruntled groupies.” He’s asked a federal judge to release him before his trial. His lawyers say R. Kelly is no threat because the allegations are bogus. His lawyers say the “groupies sought out Robert’s attention, even fought each other for it, voluntarily contacted him, came to his shows, pined to be with him …” Douglas Anton, R. Kelly’s lawyer, said it all amounts to “five disgruntled groupies, not all of which are alleged to be underage, who now show groupie remorse so many years later and only after a TV Show and an aggressive, vocal Cook County prosecutor makes a public cry for ‘victims come forth,’ tell your story and be famous.” His lawyers came for one alleged victim in particular who was not a minor when she first got with R. Kelly. They claim she went to his door and “wanted him so much that she alleges that she did not require or even request that a condom be used.” As for her accusing R. Kelly giving her herpes, his lawyers say she was “admittedly promiscuous,” and the feds never looked into how many bodies she had.
