Yikes! The Feds Are Looking for MORE R. Kelly Sex Tapes!

Just when we thought we had a reprieve from the R. Kelly drama, things once again begin to heat up. Apparently federal investigators believe there are more more sex tapes showing the The Pied Piper himself engaging in sexual acts with underage girls.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois is interviewing parties closely associated with Kelly. We’re told prosecutors have been asking about the possible existence of VHS tapes purportedly showing Kelly having sex with minors.

Rumors about an alleged stash of R. Kelly sex tapes have been floating around since Kelly went to trial on child porn charges back in 2008, but it’s never been found … not by law enforcement, anyway.

As we’ve reported … the feds are building another case against Kelly in Illinois, which we’re told is entirely separate from the 2 probes currently underway in New York — one by the Eastern District and another by the Southern District. 

We’re told feds in Illinois are investigating Kelly on 3 different fronts: sex trafficking, tax evasion and obstruction of justice.

In terms of obstruction … we’re told prosecutors have been asking people close to Kelly an array of questions focusing on his 2008 trial, believing Kelly and his handlers may have pressured witnesses. Some of the questions involve alleged payoffs to prevent witnesses from testifying in court or speaking out publicly. 

We reached out to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, but it declined to comment.

Meanwhile, R. Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, says, “The purpose of this, as with all investigations, is to see if there was or was not wrongdoing. It certainly does not mean there was.”

Honestly, we believe they are looking for more sex tapes to impose a harsher sentence on R. Kelly when all of these allegations come to court. We are praying for all the victims in this horrible twist of fate.
