Mississippi man sues R. Kelly, says singer ruined marriage

JACKSON, Miss. — A Mississippi sheriff’s deputy is suing singer R. Kelly, alleging Kelly had a yearslong affair with his wife that broke up his marriage.

Deputy Kenneth Bryant, who married Asia Childress in Mississippi in 2012, filed suit last week in state court in Jackson. He’s seeking unspecified damages. Bryant’s lawsuit includes images of texts he says Childress and Kelly exchanged.

Representatives of the rhythm and blues star, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, didn’t immediately return requests for comment Thursday. Kelly hasn’t yet responded to the suit.
