Kelly (55) is currently on trial in Chicago in a lawsuit over the possession of child pornography. On Monday, a now 37-year-old woman - known only under the pseudonym 'Jane' - testified that she met the singer when she was 13 years old, and that she visited his music studio with an aunt (a professional singer). .

When she was 14 years old, Kelly, then 30, felt her breasts for the first time during visits to the studio and the singer's private home, and "started with penetration," the woman said. They had sex for the first time when she was 15 years old, according to the woman. “Countless times, hundreds of times,” the woman replied when asked by the prosecutor how many times they had sex before coming of age.

Kelly is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence for sex trafficking and extortion in New York State.
