R. Kelly Files Lawsuit Against Blogger Tasha K And Prison Bureau

R. Kelly is suing gossip blogger Tasha K and Federal Bureau of Prisons officers for unlawfully accessing and leaking his private documents.

Disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly is asking a Chicago court to hold blogger Tasha K and the Federal Bureau of Prisons responsible for unlawfully accessing and disseminating his private records.

Kelly claims that Tasha K, whose real name is Latasha Kebe, used the information for an episode of her celebrity gossip YouTube show, UnWineWithTashaK, titled “R. Kelly Can’t CONTROL His Girlfriends While BEHIND BARS!” in which the blogger shared details of the singer’s personal calls, emails, and visitor logs.

“Yeah, there’s a phone tap somewhere, and I’m not gonna tell you where it’s at,” she said in the video. “I have the plug. I’m not gonna tell you where I got the information from, but just listen to the damn information, OK?”

In a lawsuit filed with the U.S. District Court in Chicago, the singer claims both Kebe and the officers involved violated the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. According to HuffPo, Jennifer Bonjean, Kelly’s attorney, said that the breach of trust had affected the singer, fans, and legal advisors.

“He had every right to be able to be confident, to think the BOP would protect his information and not exploit, but unfortunately, certain BOP officers did just that,” she said. “He does not feel comfortable to this day talking to anyone, even his own lawyers, because of the impact of this event.” Kelly is also claiming negligence, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, ABC 7 Chicago reports.
