Allred said the women’s story follows an alleged “pattern of conduct” by Kelly in which young women are singled out to meet the star, plied with alcohol and drugs and isolated in a room. Then he enters and engages in “shocking sexual misconduct while his alleged victims are incapacitated and unable to provide any meaningful consent to his sexual advances,” Allred said.
Steve Greenberg, Kelly’s Chicago attorney, did not return a message from USA TODAY. He has said repeatedly in recent weeks that Kelly denies all allegations of underage sex or sex without consent.
