Greg Kelly Accuser Claimed She Got Pregnant From Alleged Rape, Sources Say
by Murray Weiss
MANHATTAN -- The woman who accused Greg Kelly of raping her also claims she became pregnant as a result of the alleged sexual assault, sources told DNAinfo.
Kelly, a local TV news anchor and son of NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, is being investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney's office after the woman walked into the 13th Precinct Tuesday night and claimed he raped her in her law office near South Street Seaport.
The accuser, who is not a lawyer, told police that she was virtually passed out when Kelly, the co-host of Fox 5's "Good Day New York," allegedly sexually assaulted her last Oct. 8 at her Wall Street-connected firm.
The woman, in her late 20s, said she and Kelly met for the first time that evening and they were drinking at a bar near the Seaport.
They then strolled to her office where she claimed she the newsman assaulted her while she was incapacitated.
She told investigators she eventually called Kelly demanding to know "what did you do to me?" sources said.
Kelly, through his attorneys, has vehemently denied the allegation. His lawyers have turned over text messages between Kelly and the woman that they believe undermine suggestions the encounter was anything but consensual.
She was described as a credible "professional person" who said she ended her pregnancy, sources said. After the woman made the accusation, the NYPD quickly contacted the Manhattan District Attorney’s office to take over the investigation because of the conflicts created for cops who would have to investigate the police commissioner’s son. He has not been charged with any crime.
Kelly was absent from Thursday morning's "Good Day New York" broadcast.
"Mr. Kelly is aware that the New York County District Attorney's office is conducting an investigation," Kelly's lawyer Andrew M. Lankler said in a statement.
"Mr. Kelly strenuously denies any wrongdoing of any kind, and is cooperating fully with the District Attorney's investigation. We know that the District Attorney's investigation will prove Mr. Kelly's innocence."
The alleged victim told investigators that her boyfriend became enraged when she told him about the alleged attack, sources said. He confronted the police commissioner at a public event around the holiday season and told him that his son had ruined her life, a police spokesman said Wednesday.
Ray Kelly told the boyfriend to write him a letter, the woman told investigators, sources said.
Bloomberg, speaking at an unrelated press conference, said Ray Kelly took the appropriate step when he told the accuser's boyfriend to write a letter.
He also said turning the case over to the DA was "exactly what they should do," and added that "as far as I know, Greg Kelly has not been charged with anything."
ABC News reported that the woman is an "emotional cripple" and "distraught."
The NYPD referred all calls to the district attorney's office. The DA's office also declined to comment.
