R. Kelly’s sex trafficking trial entered its eighth day on Monday, with a male accuser testifying that the star promised him fame in exchange for sex.
The man, who testified under the pseudonym Louis, said he was a 17-year-old when Mr Kelly asked him what he “was willing to do for music”.
He then described how the singer crawled towards him and performed a sex act, even though “I wasn’t into it”.
