    R. Kelly is not expected to testify at his sex trafficking trial, according to a list of witnesses provided by his lawyers.

    The star's defence began on Monday, after a month of graphic testimony from a series of men and women who accused Mr Kelly of abusing them as teenagers.

    The first two defence witnesses said they had never seen Mr Kelly act inappropriately towards underage girls.

    The singer, 54, denies all the charges against him.

    These include one count of racketeering and eight violations of an anti-sex-trafficking law known as the Mann Act, which prohibits transporting individuals across state lines for the purpose of sex.

    Prosecutors have portrayed the singer, whose full name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, as a predator who groomed and preyed on women and young girls as far back as the mid-1990s, when songs like I Believe I Can Fly and She's Got That Vibe propelled him to fame.
