She said Kelly continued to abuse her “hundreds” of times before she turned 18. Prosecutors played an explicit tape that Kelly filmed with Jane when she was a minor. Jane told the jury that it was her on the tape.

Her testimony led to the I Believe I Can Fly singer being found guilty in court on child pornography charges.

Brown said Jane was with her family and “taking some time to process the pain that has played out in the media for the last month. When the time is right, Jane will address the public. Today is not that day.”

As RadarOnline.com first reported, Jane and her family had refused to talk to authorities for years. Kelly even paid them money to keep quiet and made sure they weren’t around to be questioned during the early 2000’s criminal investigation into him over a tape that leaked on the black market.

The tape in question featured Jane as a minor being abused by Kelly. Kelly was acquitted in the original case, but prosecutors accused him of paying off witnesses.

Kelly was be sentenced in the next couple of months. As RadarOnline.com first reported, Kelly was already sentenced to 30 years in prison as part of his New York criminal case.
