Derrel McDavid And R. Kelly

Derrel McDavid repeatedly stated on the witness stand over two days that he had hired “the best in the business” to represent his star client, R. Kelly, who was accused of sexually abusing underage girls in the early 2000s.

Kelly’s all-star legal team, led by legendary attorney Ed Genson, was able to get the singer acquitted in his 2008 child pornography trial — though federal prosecutors would later say McDavid, Kelly, and Kelly’s assistant, Milton “June” Brown, had boosted the defense with an elaborate and costly coverup scheme.

McDavid began working as Kelly’s business manager in the early 1990s. He ended the relationship in 2013 due to an unpaid wage dispute. He later sued Kelly for over a million dollars.

Derrel McDavid trial

McDavid jumped out of his seat, thrust both arms into the air, and wrapped his own attorney, Vadim Glozman, in a bear hug on Wednesday, as Judge Harry D. Leinenweber read off a string of not-guilty verdicts for the four counts against him.

The emotion was a sharp contrast to the 61-year-old accountant’s calm demeanor during the five weeks he spent in a federal courtroom, including two days on the witness stand. McDavid was charged with assisting in the decades-long cover-up of Kelly’s sexual abuse of minors with the help of Brown, who was also acquitted Wednesday on the single count he faced in the trial.

I loved Mr. Genson, I loved all my lawyers, all my friends,” McDavid said to a phalanx of cameras in the Dirksen Federal Courthouse lobby after the verdict. “These two men are the heirs to the throne.”

Despite his death in 2020, Genson was an important figure in McDavid’s defense. McDavid testified that Kelly’s former legal team of Genson, entertainment lawyer Gerry Margolis, and private investigator Jack Palladino convinced him that allegations Kelly filmed himself having sex with a 14-year-old girl were just the latest in a string of false allegations made during the late 1990s and early 2000s, when Kelly was at the height of his stardom. Margolis and Palladino are also no longer alive.

McDavid mentioned the girl in question, a teen Kelly considered his “goddaughter,” and her parents, who had all vehemently denied the allegations to police, the grand jury, and Kelly’s lawyers. She did, however, cooperate with the federal investigation that began in 2019 and, at the age of 37, was the star witness against Kelly this time.

McDavid testified on the stand that he took Kelly as a client before the artist began a meteoric rise that included Grammy awards and Olympic performances — and brought in millions of dollars.

McDavid admitted during Kelly’s trial in 2008 that he believed in Kelly, his friend and client, but admitted on the stand that what he had learned in the years since parting ways with the star had left him “embarrassed” — though he did not say whether Kelly was guilty.
