Avenatti’s credibility is pivotal to the R. Kelly sexual abuse case because Avenatti is the lawyer who obtained and submitted a tape to Cook County investigators that allegedly shows R. Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

R. Kelly’s defense team suggests that there is strong reason to believe that the footage may have been tampered with, due to Avenatti’s shady history.

Avenatti is mainly known for being the lawyer of porn star Stormy Daniels.
