Michael Avenatti reveals third sex tape showing R. Kelly and underage girl
Attorney seeks to make sure alleged the celebrity sex predator does not hurt another young girl
When Michael Avenatti announced last week that he had possession of a sex tape that allegedly showed R. Kelly having sex with an underage girl, little did we know that the celebrity attorney had even more tea to spill.
Avenatti took to Twitter on Saturday to confirm that a third tape exists of the R&B hitmaker sexually abusing a minor female.
“Update: We have become aware of the existence of a third tape, that allegedly shows further acts of sexual abuse of an underage girl by R Kelly, which we are presently working to recover and turnover to law enforcement,” Avenatti tweeted.

The news comes after Avenatti announced that he turned over a newly surfaced sex tape to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in Chicago that could soon lead to an indictment of Kelly in Illinois.
Both tapes are not the same as the infamous 27-minute footage from 2002, which allegedly showed him urinating on a teen girl believed to be 14 years old. Kelly was charged with 14 counts of child pornography in 2008 but found not guilty on all counts.
Mr. Avenatti, best known for representing porn star Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against, Donald Trump, tweeted on Thursday that he has been working overtime to bring down the superstar since April, noting that he plans to give all evidence to Chicago’s Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx.
“We will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that this predator is brought to justice,” he tweeted. “As a father of two teenage girls myself, I have the utmost faith and confidence in Ms. Foxx and her staff to ensure justice is done.”
Avenatti is so determined to bring down the house of R. Kelly that he is reportedly working on the case without pay.
“Due to the importance of ensuring justice is finally done in this matter and because we are deeply concerned that Mr. Kelly has not been held accountable for his sexual abuse of young African-American girls, whom are especially vulnerable, we have done so on a pro bono basis,” his Thursday statement said, per Newsweek. “Importantly, it has now resulted in the discovery of significant new evidence conclusively establishing Mr. Kelly’s illegal sexual assault of young girls.”
