One of the three charities the event supported was the Helen Bamber Foundation, which helps survivors of “extreme human cruelty” including “sexual exploitation”. Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents 20 victims of Mr. Epstein, said “It is highly likely that in June 2019 Ms. Maxwell would have known law enforcement was investigating Jeffrey Epstein on allegations he sex trafficked underaged girls. “I have to wonder if she chose to participate in this rally as a calculated PR tactic which would portray her as a socialite who was sympathetic to and supportive of victims of sex trafficking rather than as a woman who would conspire to recruit underage girls to be sex trafficked to Jeffrey Epstein.”

The rest of his estate is tied up in bankruptcy and other civil proceedings, multiple sources familiar with the situation confirmed to ABC News. Sources close to Weinstein claimed that the asset freeze has complicated his efforts to appeal his New York conviction and mount a strong defense ahead of his L.A. trial. Veteran victims’ advocate and attorney Gloria Allred, who represents some of the women who have or will testify against Weinstein in criminal court, said that news of the asset freeze concerned her. “This new development presents a serious impediment to the efforts of the victims of Harvey Weinstein to obtain compensation from him for the harm that he has inflicted on them,” Allred told ABC News. “It is not, however, the end of the road for victims, because he may have other assets that are not liquid that may be available to the victims.

02.25.19 – Lizzette Martinez has been courageous and decided to speak out today, despite the trauma of Kelly’s victimization of her. Ms. Allred points out that other accusers that she represents “have met with and provided the facts underlying their allegations to law enforcement in a number of different jurisdictions. Defendant Kelly has not testified under oath about these allegations and I suspect he will decline to do so at trial. I think that those facts speak for themselves.”

- 02.05.19 – The lawsuit alleged that the Martinez family were subjected to discriminatory, derogatory and humiliating language and conduct by a manager-cook at the Waffle House, Inc. while there as customers at the restaurant. “We are speaking out today because the type of language and conduct to which our clients were allegedly subjected is completely unacceptable, and if proven should shock the conscience of the community and would violate the law. Every individual has a right to be free of discrimination by a business and every person is entitled to respect and dignity.”

The alleged victim and her mother were present at the press conference and spoke. The mother of another young woman who alleges she was victimized by Mr. Kelly also spoke out in support of victims. At the press conference, Ms. Allred presented documentary evidence of the threat and retaliation against one of the alleged victims.
01.14.19 – Faith Rodgers, an alleged victim, her mother Kelly, and Michelle Kramer, the mother of Dominique Gardner, who also allegedly suffered for years from Kelly’s misconduct, discussed Mr. Kelly’s intimidation of his alleged victims into keeping silent about their allegations. Faith had previously filed a lawsuit against Robert Sylvester Kelly aka R. Kelly which is pending in the New York Supreme Court detailing what she alleges is Kelly’s victimization of her. In response to Faith’s lawsuit, Mr. Kelly retaliated against her by threatening to reveal what he alleges are details of her sex life. In addition, he posted private photos of her. One threat was contained in a letter Mr. Kelly wrote to Lydia Hills aka Lydia Agu, an attorney for Ms. Rodgers.
We will be meeting today with the New York City police department who has asked to meet with Faith in furtherance of their investigation into potential victims of R. Kelly. We will offer our full and complete cooperation in their investigation. Prosecutors in Chicago and Atlanta are also seeking information from potential victims and we plan to offer them our cooperation as well.
R. Kelly can look forward to a legacy which will not be his music, but rather the pain and suffering he inflicted on the many vulnerable teenagers and young women who claim they were victimized by him.
“He may rest assured that I will do everything in my power to support those who claim that they are victims.”
