On Friday, a Kansas City man named Charles Freeman filed a lawsuit against singer R. Kelly and his manager, Daryll McDavid. In the suit, Freeman claims that he entered into an agreement in 2001 with R. Kelly and McDavid to "act as a private investigator" and retrieve "tapes" relevant to R. Kelly's then-upcoming child-pornography trial. R. Kelly was accused of 21 counts of child pornography. The trial, which was delayed until 2008, centered on a tape that allegedly showed R. Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl. The details inspired comedian Dave Chappelle to create this bit of comedy gold.

R. Kelly was acquitted of all charges in 2008. A story posted on Chicago news aggregator Web site WindyCitizen.com mentions Freeman in a day-by-day review of the trial. "It was reported that two Kansas City men allegedly paid by R. Kelly's representatives for the return of a sex tape would arrive in Chicago to offer more information about the tape at the center of the case," reads the article by Darryl Swint. "(Kansas City resident Keith) Murell and Charles Freeman were accused by Kelly's reps of faking a sex tape and trying to extort money from the singer. Records show in 2002 Freeman sued Kelly for failing to pay him $140,000 for the return of a videotape."



Apparently, Freeman's still feeling pissed on, and that makes him pissed off. Here's the lawsuit Freeman filed on Friday (and read the rest after the jump):
