R. Kelly sexually abused late singer Aaliyah when she was in her early teens, an accuser testified in Brooklyn court on Monday.
The accuser, a backup dancer for Kelly referred to as “Angela,” said she walked in on the disgraced pop star giving oral sex to Aaliyah in 1992 or 1993 – when Aaliyah would’ve been 13 or 14, Vulture reported.
Angela said she and another girl went toward Kelly’s bedroom in the back of a tour bus with the goal of performing a prank and cracked open the door.
“I saw Robert and Aaliyah in a sexual situation,” Angela said, according to Vulture. “It appeared he has his head in between her legs and was giving her oral sex.”
Angela said she quickly closed the door after witnessing the alleged assault, The Huffington Post report. She never spoke to the disgraced singer about the incident, she reportedly said.
