RATED R Kelly (inset) Two more witnesses testified in the R. Kelly trial today about the identity of the girl in the R&B artist's infamous sex tape. The defense team has argued that it's not R. in the video. And the alleged victim says it's not her either. Today's witnesses said they recognized the victim and put her age at about 12 or 13 years old.

Kelly, 41, faces 14 counts of child pornography and up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

Tjada Burnett said she recognized the alleged victim by her "cheeks, her nose, her facial structure." Cross examination centered on the question of whether the victim in the tape had braces. No one knew why defense attorneys harped on that point, though.
