According to court documents dating before the R. Kelly child pornography trial, an "employee" of Kelly's allegedly threatened to kill the key witness in the prosecution's case if she "snitched" against the singer by testifying in his trial.

Van Patten also testified before the trial that another associate of Kelly's offered her $100,000 for the infamous sex tape.
