    Wyatt went on to claim that Kelly’s case was an example of ‘an assault on black menin America today.

    ‘This is an assault on successful black men who are doing great things,’ 他说.

    ‘I see R Kelly having a strong case on appeal, and I think when he gets to the appellate court and when he gets to the highest court in the land, I think we’ll see a conviction overturned.

    The rep claimed to the Post that Kelly’s constitutional rights had been ‘grossly abused,’ pointing to the influence a documentary on allegations against the singer-songwriter appeared to have played in getting the case to court.

    He claimed that Kelly, who at the peak of his fame was estimated to have earned some $100million, did not have the means or resources for his legal fight.

    Wyatt also hit out at Kelly’s lawyers, saying ‘no one fought hard for him’.
