The topic was extortion. Here's telling whether it pays off for the defense.
A private investigator testified on R. Kelly's behalf Thursday that the fiancé of Lisa Van Allen, the prosecution's so-called star witness who told the court yesterday that she engaged in several threesomes with the singer and the underage girl he's accused of making a sex tape with, attempted to extort $300,000 from Kelly in exchange for his girlfriend's silence.
Van Allen had testified Wednesday about meeting once with Jack Palladino, saying the P.I. threatened her.
