A Mississippi man is suing R. Kelly for allegedly sleeping with his wife. 

Kenny Bryant filed court documents on April 21 claiming that this affair has caused him emotional distress, among other damages. 

Bryant was a Hinds County Sheriff’s Department deputy. In his legal docs, he states that Kelly first became romantically involved with his wife, Asia Childress, before their July 2012 wedding. The plaintiff states that his spouse never told him about this fling. Bryant adds that the affair resumed in October 2012.

The distressed husband also notes that his wife urged him to relocate from Mississippi to Atlanta in order to “further her career” in the popular southern city. But, Bryant believed that this was just a way for Childress to continue her affair with the R&B singer.

Since moving to the ATL, Bryant adds that it’s been hard for him “to find profitable employment” and because of this, he’s been facing “financial ruin.” When the married couple tried to give their relationship another chance, the husband states that their marriage could “not prevail against R. Kelly’s continued sexual overtures to Childress.” 

He’s since filed for divorce. Kelly has been summoned, but has yet to respond to the suit.
