R. Kelly might not be the most recognizable R&B star, but so far the prosecution hasn't had any trouble identifying him as the star of a certain sex tape.
A former employee of Kelly's testified Tuesday she is "110 percent sure" that her famous boss is the guy featured in a 27-minute tape of a sexual encounter that authorities say took place between Kelly and a 13- or 14-year-old girl about 8 to 10 years ago.
Lindsey Perryman, who worked as both a producer and personal assistant for Kelly, said she initially didn’t want to believe it was the singer when prosecutors first showed her the video in December, because she thought highly of him and he and his family had been "very, very good" to her.
But, Perryman said, she is now sure that Kelly is on that tape, as well as the alleged victim, whom Perryman said she recognized from the recording studio.
"She has distinct cheekbones, the way she moves her mouth and talks and smiles," Perryman, who also testified she used to drive the girl between school and the studio, said. "It's very distinctive to her."
