Kelly will have to defend himself against four child pornography counts, conspiracy to obstruct justice in connection with his 2008 state-court acquittal; three counts related to receiving the child pornography, and five additional enticement counts. In 2008, Kelly was acquitted in a criminal case over child pornography.

In his new motion, the singer said he is not charged with any conduct related to his relationship with Aaliyah who is deceased, “including evidence that [Kelly] married Aaliyah in 1994 when she was underage.”

He said prosecutors should not be allowed to use any of this in trial nor should anyone be allowed to testify about his alleged sexual relationship with Aaliyah.

In 1994, a 27-year-old Kelly married a 15-year-old Aaliyah. The government accused him of bribing a state official to obtain a fake ID for the underage singer.

Further, he wants all uncharged allegations of women who claim he abused them not to be discussed.

His lawyer wrote, “The voluminous discovery in this case reveals that scores of women have accused [Kelly] of engaging in varying forms of mistreatment toward them. The government has not provided notice of any intent to offer such additional evidence. [Kelly] moves to bar any additional uncharged allegations of misconduct.”

Kelly also demanded any evidence that Kelly impregnated any of his accusers of facilitated their abortions not be allowed in court. He said prosecutors have two women who will claim Kelly got them pregnant and then helped them obtain a procedure to end it.

A judge has yet to rule on the motion.
