R. Kelly has requested that a court delay a lawsuit in which a sheriff sued the singer for allegedly breaking up his marriage.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Kelly wants the court to halt the proceedings initiated by a man named Kenny Bryant.
Back in 2018, Bryant sued Kelly for allegedly sleeping with his wife. The case was filed in Mississippi, which allows a person to sue a third party if they had an extramarital affair with their spouse.
The lawsuit claims that Bryant’s wife, Asia Childress, had a romantic relationship with Kelly prior to their July 15, 2012 wedding. Bryant says he was told that the relationship but that Kelly rekindled the relationship when she attended one of his concerts in October 2012.

Bryant said his wife persuaded him to move to Atlanta for her career but he really thinks it was so she could continue the affair with Kelly. He even quit his job for her.
Kelly is about to face trial in New York before heading to Chicago for a second trial.
