A judge has awarded one of R. Kelly’s alleged victims… more money!

Heather Williams is her name.


She received $4M in a sexual assault case against the disgraced singer and now a Supreme court ruling gives her first dibs on his Sony Music royalty account.

In her lawsuit, she explains that she and Kelly had a sexual relationship that started in 1998 when she was only 16.


She will reportedly be the first one of the singer’s “victims” that have rights to royalties.


On the other hand, R. Kelly is expected to spend no more than 31 years in prison, he won’t be eligible for parole until he’s 80.
