R. Kelly’s brother, Bruce Kelly is suing him because he has not paid his salary for the past 3 months.
TMZ quotes Bruce as saying that R Kelly worked him to the bone — 144 hours/week without paying him a dime, a reason he decided to blow the whistle on the singer with the State of Illinois.
Bruce says his younger brother hired him in March as a personal assistant and driver, and they had a verbal agreement — for $700 a week, Bruce would do food runs and chauffeur R. Kelly. But the brotherly love faded after Bruce started working overtime without seeing any green.
According to documents filed with the state labour board, Bruce says he sometimes had to wait up to 12 hours in the car for R. Kelly … and never got any sleep.
He told TMZ that he even spoke to R. Kelly about the $11,000 in back pay he claims he was owed but the singer didn’t care.
Bruce said he put his foot down after 3 months because he’s “not working for nobody, not even his brother, for free.”
The labor board is still investigating his claim.
