Here’s everything you need to know.

R. Kelly’s juror has a panic attack in court

On September 12, Monday, the closing arguments of R. Kelly’s second trial were held in Dirksen Federal Court in Chicago after almost two years.

However, it was reported that one of the 12 jurors suffered from a panic attack during the proceedings. The juror was excused rather than take part in the session.

In addition, Jason Meisner, a journalist at the Chicago Tribune reported that the juror was a white woman and appeared to be in her 30s. She also revealed that she works for a public library.

He wrote in a tweet, ‘One of R. Kelly’s jurors is having a panic attack and doesn’t believe she can continue, the judge says.’

Meisner said in a follow-up message, ‘The Judge says he is juror No. 44, who works for a public library. The 7th juror was selected. “My inclination is to excuse her,” says Leinenweber.’

Furthermore, he added, “[Judge] Leinenweber says the juror reported that she didn’t think “she could go on one more minute” and that waiting overnight wouldn’t help. She’d be replaced by an alternate, Juror No. 83, white male, 60ish.’

Furthermore, according to reports the woman had only heard news about the disgraced crooner but had never seen the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series. However, it seems that the graphic content presented during the trial may have taken a toll on her.

More on R. Kelly’s child sexual abuse trial

R. Kelly is facing sex crime related charges for the second time in just a year. He is already serving a 30-year prison sentence after being convicted of federal racketeering and sex trafficking charges in New York City.

In the current trial, the 55-year-old R&B singer is accused of child pornography and obstruction of justice.

He was alleged to have intimidated and bribed witnesses to conceal evidence related to a 2008 criminal trial on child pornography charges in Cook County.

Additionally, an alleged victim who identifies herself as Jane took the stand last month in Chicago to reveal that Kelly had sex with her several times before she turned 18. She also claimed that the singer filmed intimate videos of herself when she was only 14 years old.
