Reporter: How I broke the R. Kelly story

  • Reporter Jim DeRogatis talks with HLN about past allegations of sexual assault involving R&B star R. Kelly
  • R. Kelly, who recently released a new studio album, has denied the allegations

R&B superstar R. Kelly has dozens of hits and collaborated with the likes of Jay-Z, Michael Jackson and Celine Dion. However, the singer has also faced child pornography charges and allegations of sex with underaged girls.

R. Kelly was eventually acquitted on child porn charges and other lawsuits were settled out of court.

HLN's Susan Hendricks talks with reporter Jim DeRogatis about how he broke the R. Kelly story more than a decade ago and a recent article in "The Village Voice" that revisits sexual assault accusations involving the R&B star.
