The brother of singer R. Kelly says he was asked to take the rap for a sex tape showing illegal acts with a minor.
E! Online reports that Carey Kelly says his brother wanted him testify that he was actually the person shown on the tape having sex with an under-aged girl.
The tape resulted in child-pornography charges against R. Kelly.
MTV News says Carey Kelly released a DVD on Tuesday in which he accuses his brother of asking him to commit perjury.
He says R. Kelly offered to give him a house, a record contract and $50,000 if he would take the blame.
Carey says, "I got a call about a year and a half ago... My brother wanted me to do some s--t pertaining to this case that would leave me behind bars with a record deal. It doesn't make sense, so I turned it down."
He adds, "Since I couldn't lie for him in a court of law, we're back to beefing again, and we ain't brothers no more."
Carey also alleges that his brother beats his wife, molested a 12-year-old cousin, and attempted to molest the daughter of a third brother. He also claims the singer is bisexual.
A spokesperson for R. Kelly called the allegations "ridiculous."
He says to MTV News, "This is not the first time Carey has made ridiculous accusations against his brother... We're not going to dignify them with a comment."
Carey was recently released from prison on theft charges.
