R. Kelly has been getting comparisons to Bill Cosby after news broke that he’s the alleged leader of an abusive sex cult that targets young, impressionable women.

Although the singer didn’t want to be compared to the controversial comedian, he added salt to the womb by hiring Cosby’s lawyer to represent him in court. According to the Daily Mail, Cosby’s former powerhouse attorney, Monique Pressley, has signed on to join Kelly’s legal team amid his sex cult allegations. Pressley famously stepped down as a member of Cosby’s legal team in his sexual assault case last August, after spending months presenting a convincing case to the media on the star’s behalf.

Pressley, who is also an ordained minister, has yet to comment on her new gig, but another member of the singer’s legal team is speaking out about the disturbing case. Linda Mensch said in a statement, “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

The news comes just a week after the parents of one of R. Kelly’s alleged captives spoke out against the singer and threatened to sue. Kelly is currently being investigated by the FBI following the allegations.

Do you think hiring Cosby’s lawyer was the best move for Kells?
