Yul Brown and Lisa Van Allen

Lisa Van Allen, whose testimony about threesomes and sex tapes rocked the R. Kelly trial Monday, is "happy" with her testimony and "glad she got a chance to get her story across," her fiance said Tuesday.

Yul Brown, who himself became a subject of cross-examination when Van Allen was testifying, said "there's a lot more that she'd like to say about this case that she couldn't talk about."

Brown, 38, is engaged to Van Allen, a former girlfriend of Kelly's who met the R&B star when she was 17. She is now 27 and pregnant with her second child.

Van Allen testified she had three-way sex with Kelly and the allegedly underage girl who appears in the sex tape at the heart of the case. She also said Kelly taped a menage-a-trois the two of them had with the allegedly underage girl.

When defense lawyer Sam Adam Sr. cross-examined Van Allen on Monday, he made reference to her taste in men with criminal records. Adam noted Brown has a record — and that Van Allen only came forward with allegations about Kelly after her fiance was arrested earlier this year.

Records show Brown was arrested on Feb 21, 2008 on drugs and weapons charges.

Brown allegedly had an AK-47 and drugs in his Atlanta-area home, Adam said. He pleaded guilty to the weapons charge and got probation. In an interview Tuesday, Brown denied that Van Allen went to Cook County prosecutors in order to get a lighter sentence in his case.

"The reason I got such a light sentence was that it was an illegal search. The reason the police came to my house was because my alarm system went off," Brown told the Sun-Times.

"In regards to my gun charge, to say that [assistant state's attorney] Shauna [Boliker] had anything to do with that was really ridiculous. She had nothing to do with it," Brown said.

Brown also denied the defense's contention that he said Van Allen would change her testimony if Kelly paid them.

"All Lisa wanted from the beginning was to get her story out," Brown said. "You can see she’s a genuine person, you can she’s sincere… I just told her, I said, baby, be yourself."

Brown also admitted he'd been in trouble with the law — but said it was all in the past. "I had some driving charges, I had a counterfeit documents charge … That’s true… I moved on. I did my time, I fixed my debt to society. I started investing in real estate, I’m doing really well."

PS LET R KELLY GO THAT WAS THEN AND THIS IS NOW

Just because she steals and lies, does not eradicate the fact that R. Kelly has had numerous encounters with young women who seem to be telling the same story. It is very obvious that he is a child predator, and regardless of what this woman's lifestyle is today, she was child when R Kelly had molested her on tape.

We'll it looks like the both got their lifes together. Someone's past should not determine whether they deserve to have a husband or wife.
I hope they do right by each other and their children.

Best Wishes Lisa and Yul

Why is everybody so hung up on what they say R. Kelly did? Why are these people coming out of the woodworks all of a sudden with info? Sounds like extortion to me. If you knew then, why didnt you go forward? Why did you wait till years after the fact to speak on it?

People aren't just coming out of the woodwork. The trial has been continued or postponed for years. Most of these people were willing to testify 5 years ago. Duh???? Musically I am a huge fan of R Kelly but he's a child predator who uses his wealth and fame to take advantage of minor GIRLS. He probably never thought that his alleged victims, the ones brave enough to come forward, would ever have any one listen and believe the horrible things he's accused of doing. The real question is, will Mr Kelly take the stand to defend himself? The answer is NO.
