Comedian Bill Cosby has decided to step in and help RnB singer R. Kelly during his trial for unpaid child support. The intervention comes as a result of a press conference Cosby witnessed in prison.
The 81-year-old comedian is currently being held as a prisoner for indecent sexual assault for 3 to 10 years at SCI-Phoenix prison. “That crisis manager is going to get Kelly locked up again!” Cosby said as he watched Darryl Johnson get talked over and interrupted during a press conference last week.
On a phone call with his wife, Cosby said that he will “personally pay” Andrew (Wyatt) to be a crisis manager for Kelly. Cosby has also referred to Kelly’s current crisis manager incompetent and said that he was “pushed aside like a hobo during the press conference”.
Wyatt, Cosby’s spokesperson and crisis manager, has said, “We are sending proposals,” on being asked whether he will be joining Kelly’s legal team. He also said that they want to prevent a “public lynching of a successful black man in America”. Wyatt believes a “racist war” needs to be fought for R. Kelly.
Last month, the 52-year-old singer Kelly was charged for 10 counts of sexual abuse against four victims, three of them underage. He pleaded “not guilty” for all counts and had to pay $100,000 in bonds to be released.
He was again arrested this week on account of failure to pay $161,000 as backed up child support. Authorities have stated that he will not be released until he produces said funds.
