R. Kelly is combatting a judgment in a lawsuit by women who stated he victimized them. According to TMZ, six women were awarded a collective $10.5 million for the attempted shutdown of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries screening with his former manager, Donnell Russell.

In response, Kelly and his legal team stated they would have combatted the case if they were unaware. Kelly states he was too busy with the criminal cases and has difficulty keeping up with everything from his North Carolina prison cell.

Adding to the complexities of his situation, R. Kelly stated a transition in his legal representation may have also let lawsuits slip through the cracks. Kelly states he also relies on legal reps when he has them because “I cannot read or understand words beyond that of a grade schooler.”

R. Kelly also states Donnell operated independently and “for his own reasons.”

In November, R. Kelly initiated a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Prisons, claiming the agency leaked his private information to Tasha K.

The suit was filed in Chicago gedeal court, stating an agent at the Bureau of Prisons accessed the singer’s prison records, which also had phone calls with his lovers and lawyers, and sold them to Tasha K. Tasha K then used them online to her followers.

“The defendant United States of America breached its duty of care to the plaintiff when it allowed countless BOP officers to access plaintiff’s confidential information without any legal basis to do so,” Kelly’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean filed, according to Billboard.

Tasha K is also listed in the suit, stating she used her following to “harass the plaintiff” and caused “chaos in the plaintiff’s personal life.”

The suit also states that R. Kelly is fearful of speaking with his team due to the possibility it could be “released to the general public for mass exploitation.”

In August, R. Kelly wrapped up his most recent restitution bill. Following his high-profile criminal cases, Kelly still owed $506,950.26 to his victims. His next royalty check will cover the bill.

According to TMZ, Universal Music Group’s payout to R. Kelly was 567,444.19, more than enough to cover his remaining bill. Before the remainder goes elsewhere, UMG will direct a check to his restitution.
