R. Kelly is currently undergoing a trial in Chicago. While things look very bleak for the singer, it seems that the courtroom is matching the vibe as well. There are already allegations of trial fixing. One of the jurors at the R. Kelly trial suddenly started suffering a panic attack, which slowed down the trial.

TMZ reports that the juror was a white female, who suddenly entered into a panic attack after the prosecution’s closing argument. Reporter Jon Seidel revealed that the judge excused her after he came to know that she “couldn’t last another minute.” 

The judge called for her replacement, and a white male stepped in. The juror has an objective view of the situation, as he hasn’t seen the “Surviving R. Kelly” documentary as well.

Kelly’s trial is in its last few phases, as the defense team for the rapper is delivering their closing arguments. The trial is not going his way, and it’s nothing short of a legal nightmare for the people involved.

R. Kelly already received a sentence of 30 years in federal prison. He was convicted in New York back in June. The rapper is set to receive his verdict, though it’s a matter of time given how much time the jury takes.
