R Kelly claims Learning Difficulties Caused Him To Lose S*xual Abuse Case

R. Kelly is claiming that a learning difficulty that leaves him unable to read should be a valid defence against sexual abuse allegations against him.

The 52-year-old musician (whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly) is currently facing several claims of s-xual assault - however lawyers for the star are arguing a debilitating learning difficulty may excuse him from one recent judgement against him.

An alleged victim called Heather Williams has accused the singer of sexually assaulting her when she was 16-years-old - with the woman winning a default judgement against Kelly this week when he failed to appear in court.


However, his lawyers have claimed that Kelly was in Cook County Jail at the time he was served papers in relation to the allegations made by Heather - and that he was in jail for failing to pay child support.

The lawyers - named by TMZ as Zaid Abdallah and Raed Shalabi - have claimed Kelly was served the papers while he was in jail and that he was unable to read the documents and therefore missed his court appearance as he didn’t know he was expected to take action.

TMZ claim to have documents showing the lawyers claim the singer: ”suffers from a learning disability that adversely affects his ability to read," to such an extent that: "in essence he cannot [read at all].”

As a result, Kelly’s lawyers are requesting the singer be allowed to properly mount a defence and have the recent default judgement overturned.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
