R kelly Lost Civil Suit Because He Can’t Read

The lawyer of R. Kelly has revealed that the shamed r&b singer recently lost a civil suit because he lacked the ability to read.

Before now, Kelly had already lost a civil lawsuit in which he was charged with sexual abuse of an underage girl in the late 1990s.

The singer never responded to the lawsuit and even failed to appear in court. In turn, a Cook County judge issued a default judgment for the plaintiff identified as “H.W.” in legal documents.

R.Kelly’s attorney, Brian Nix spoke out saying:

“R. Kelly was served while incarcerated on the child support case and he was overwhelmed by the experience of being in jail,” Nix told the breaking news outlet. “[Being overwhelmed] coupled with Mr. Kelly not being cognizant of what the motion fully meant led to him missing the hearing. I had no idea he had been served.”

“[Kelly] suffers from a learning disability that adversely affects his ability to read,” legal documents state, “… in essence he cannot,” Kelly’s other attorney’s Zaid Abdallah and Raed Shalabi stated.

We thought the lawyers were supposed to do the reading for their clients and interpret the law on their behalf.

Their statements were a far cry from his publicist, Darrell Johnson who told the Chicago Sun-Times: “We don’t care about the lawsuit. The lawsuit means nothing to us.”
