R. Kelly Has Hired Bill Cosby’s Former Lawyer


(TIML NEWS) Between This man & Usher…It looks bad for our R&B heroes smh. Amidst allegations of sexual assault and abuse, R. Kelly has reportedly hired Bill Cosby’s former lawyer.

According to The Daily Mail, Kelly has hired Monique Pressley after a viral investigative report about him orchestrating a sex cult of women was published on Buzzfeed last week.

“The DC-based trial attorney is well-known for her appearances as a legal contributor across the news networks,” The Daily Mail says of Pressley. “Pressley stepped down as a member of Cosby’s legal team in his sexual assault case last August after previously mounting a vigorous defense of the disgraced star during TV interviews.”
