R. Kelly victim wins US$4 million

One of R Kelly's victims has won a 4 million dollar judgement against the Bump n Grind singer following a Illinois Supreme Court ruling last week.

The money will be paid from his royalty account with Sony Music.

The court also ruled that the victim's claims should take precedence over a Chicago landlord who is owed $3.5 million by the Grammy award-winning singer.

Heather Williams filed a civil lawsuit against Mr Kelly in 2019, alleging that when she was 16 years old, the I Believe I Can Fly hitmaker lured her into his studio with promises that she could be in a music video and then repeatedly had sex with her as a minor.

His attorney is seeking to have the judgment overturned.

R Kelly was sentenced to two decades behind bars by a Chicago judge last month for his federal sexual assault case.
