The first male accuser of R&B singer R. Kelly has testified in the ongoing sexual abuse trial against the singer.
The man was identified as Louis and claimed that Kelly abused him when he was 17 years old.
Louis said he met Kelly in 2006 when the singer came to a McDonald’s where Louis was working. Kelly asked Louis to give his phone number to a female colleague, while Kelly also gave Louis his phone number as well.
“I said, I got fantasies,” Louis testified. “I told him I had fantasies of two or three girls at one time. He said, ‘You ever had a fantasy about a man?’ I said no. He crawled down on his knees and proceeded to give me oral sex.”
Louis claimed he told R. Kelly he “didn’t like it” and “wasn’t into it,” and Kelly stopped. “He just told me, ‘Keep it between me and him.
We’re family now. We’re brothers,’ ” Louis said. Louis continued to attend Kelly’s parties and claimed that Kelly would record their sexual encounters. He also accused Kelly of making him engage in a sexual encounter with a stranger while Kelly watched.
It’s unclear when R. Kelly and Louis allegedly stopped engaging in sexual activities with each other, though they were in contact until at least 2018.
