R. Kelly Trying Not to Come -- Yet Again

5/7/2008 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The R. Kelly kiddie porn trial has been delayed for more than five years -- so what's another five years between litigants?

TMZ has confirmed that R. Pissy's lawyers filed a motion today to delay the trial for what seems like the 18 millionth time. The motion will be considered on the first scheduled day of trial.

The trial was finally slated to begin on Friday with jury selection. Just last weekend, the Chicago Sun-Times revealed that a witness was going to come forward to testify that she had had a threesome with R. and the alleged underage victim, and we're told that this new info is what's prompting the motion to continue.

A source tells TMZ that the judge in the case -- Vincent Gaughan -- has been trying to avoid leaks precisely so that Kelly won't have any excuse to delay the proceedings any longer. We're told that he's running this one "tighter than any case in recent memory."

It's a good strategy by his lawyers. I hope he doesn't have to serve any time for this. Having sex with your girlfriend shouldn't be a crime... she knew what she was doing, it's not like she was 10 years old.

If the prosecution presents a shoddy case (they've shown great signs of weakness in the past), then by law R. Kelly deserves to be acquitted. It's hard to win a case when you don't have a victim; or when the alleged victim is actually testifying for the defense! I wonder if we'll be able to watch the trial or read transcripts anywhere, or will we just have to rely on salacious and usually biased soundbytes from places like TMZ?

Don't care if he is guilty or innocent. That's up to the judicial system that this guy is abusing. How do people like this become celebrities anyway? Minimal talent, less of a person and loved by his brothers and sisters because he can get away with it. They like that! Teach the man don't F*** with us MF'r!
