R. Kelly is involved in more legal drama, but this time it’s overseas. Busisiwe Zakwe has implicated Kelly in her trial over an alleged investment scandal in Durban, South Africa. News 24 reports Zakwe claims she deposited millions of dollars into Kelly’s bank account in exchange for the singer to perform on a concert tour of South Africa. Zakwe has been charged with allegedly taking money from over 50 investors, including older people living off their pension, to fund the R. Kelly tour, which never came to fruition.
Durban prosecutors have been trying to contact R. Kelly or his representatives to gain more information about his business relationship with Zakwe and to determine whether Kelly had any part in the alleged scam. Blackie Swart, one of the prosecutors, said they have yet to get in contact with Kelly, however, and the trial has been delayed due to recent developments in the case.
