A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy has filed a lawsuit against US R&B superstar R. Kelly over an alleged affair Kelly had with the deputy’s wife.
According to Fox News, 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.
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.
