R. Kelly ‘tried to bribe his brother with $50,000 to say HE was the one in 2002 child porn tape’ after convincing music manager that he had a twin
R. Kelly’s brother claims the singer offered him $50,000 to take the blame for a 2002 bootleg child porn tape which he went to court over and even convinced music industry insiders that he had a twin.
The revelation came in Surviving R. Kelly Part II: The Reckoning, where Carey Kelly, the singer’s younger brother, revealed that he asked him to take the fall for the tape.
Carey said he offered him a car, a record deal and $50,000 to say it was him having sex with an underage girl in the 27-minute tape.
It was filmed in 2002 and was sold on the street then but Kelly did not go to trial over it in 2008. Carey revealed in the docu-series how his brother begged him to take the blame.
‘He was asking me, “You need to say that was you.” Commit a crime pretty much to say that was me on the tape with a minor.
