Los Angeles-based attorney Michael Avenatti issued a statement Thursday saying that his firm was retained last April by several people who alleged they were sexually assaulted by Kelly.

CNN confirmed the tape's existence and shared details of its contents. "The tape, which is clear, is approximately 45-minutes in length and has never been previously been publicly disclosed or, until recently, provided to law enforcement". Warning: The following description is graphic and potentially triggering. It features scenes in a living room and another in a bedroom.

A new video tape showing R. Kelly performing sexual acts on a girl has surfaced, which will be crucial evidence in his possible indictment. She is heard calling him "daddy" multiple times. He also said he didn't know where the person had kept the video or why they hadn't provided it to law enforcement previously. He was acquitted six years later. She and the man both urinate on each other, per CNN, mirroring the acts Kelly was arrested for 17 years ago. After she does, he urinates on her, according to CNN.

"Further, the time frame of sexual assaults depicted in the video is within the IL statute of limitations", he added.

Avenatti is reportedly representing an individual who the attorney describes as a whistleblower against Kelly, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The 10-month investigation, Avenatti said, "has now resulted in the discovery of significant new evidence conclusively establishing Mr. Kelly's illegal sexual assault of young girls".


Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg told CNN, "we are unaware of any new information involving Mr. Kelly". We have not been contacted by anyone.

The Cook County State's Attorney's Office tells Yahoo, "We can not confirm nor deny an investigation".

Earlier this week, R. Kelly was in the center of more controversy after a CBS news crew from Atlanta allegedly spotted the singer leaving his studio in Chicago at hours he was not supposed to be in the location.

Foxx said she was "sickened" by the accounts described in "Surviving R. Kelly", a documentary that aired on Lifetime, but said she has not - and can not - open a criminal probe in the absence of cooperating witnesses.

The New Yorker report, which was written by longtime Kelly reporter Jim DeRogatis, who in 2002 broke the news of the sex tape that led to criminal charges against the singer, cites a senior law-enforcement official as saying that prosecutors may soon indict him in IL.
