R. Kelly loses sex abuse civil lawsuit after he fails to show up in court...

From CBS Local

A judge entered a default judgment in the civil case of a woman who accused R. Kelly of sexual abuse after he failed to appear in court and failed to respond to the complaint.

The woman, who says she was 16 when the abuse happened, filed the lawsuit for at least $50,000 in damages. She says she was 16 when R. Kelly saw her walking down the street and pulled his car over to speak with her on May 26, 1998. An R. Kelly associate then met with the girl’s family, and since the girl was “star struck,” she agreed to meet the singer.

The lawsuit states R. Kelly engaged in sexual intercourse and oral sex with the minor and that Kelly acknowledged the behavior was inappropriate.

Kelly is scheduled to appear in court May 8 when Judge Moira Johnson will hear details from the victim to determine how much Kelly must pay.
