A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy has filed a lawsuit against R&B
superstar R. Kelly over an alleged affair Kelly had with the deputy’s
In the lawsuit, Hinds County Deputy Kenny Bryant claimed that he had
suffered “emotional, psychological and financial loss” due to the
actions of the “Ignition” singer.
According to Page Six,Bryant
claims that his wife, Asia Childress, admitted to having a relationship
with Kelly prior to their wedding in July 2012. The deputy alleges that
Kelly and Childress rekindled their relationship that October after she
went to one of his concerts.
Soon after, Bryant said Childress convinced him to quit his job and move
to Atlanta, ostensibly to further his career. However, he believes
Childress’ motive was to continue her affair with Kelly.
According to the lawsuit, Childress repeatedly traveled to nearby states
to attend R. Kelly concerts and rendezvous with the singer. The suit
also alleges that Childress contracted chlamydia from Kelly around the
time they began seeing each other again.
