(AllHipHop News) According to reports, R. Kelly is set to be back in court on Tuesday morning. The R&B singer born Robert Kelly must face a judge for a hearing in connection to his aggravated sexual abuse charges.
Kelly’s legal team filed a motion requesting all messages between attorney Michael Avenatti and the prosecution be preserved as possible evidence of inappropriate coordination between the two parties. Avenatti reportedly represents some of the alleged victims in the Kelly case.
Avenatti was also recently indicted on embezzlement and extortion charges. He's accused of misappropriating money from his clients for his own personal use. In a separate federal case, Avenatti is implicated in an alleged extortion and conspiracy shakedown of Nike.
