    2 R&B superstar R. Kelly 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse in Cook County - Back In Jail 3/6, Out 3/9

    From what I've read, he kept women at his house and made them do things like beg for food and ask permission to go to the bathroom. I'm sure there's much more, but -- *ick* -- I didn't care enough to really delve into it. It will all come out now.

    R. Kelly has been charged with 10 counts by the Cook County State's Attorney.


    Prosecutors hit him with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse on Friday morning. A grand jury had convened about a week ago to investigate the alleged sex tape that Michael Avenatti handed over to authorities. TMZ broke the story ... 2 women testified for the grand jury over the last week, including one who provided physical evidence.

    Sources connected to the case tell us the tape was a pivotal force leading to the charges. We're told that Avenatti and his client spent a significant amoutnt of time with the Cook Counrty State's Attorney and the grand jury in the last few weeks.

    Our sources say as many as a dozen accusers came forward to testify.

    As we reported, Avenatti says he uncovered the VHS tape during a months-long investigation into allegations his clients made about Kelly having sex with minors. The tape reportedly shows Kelly having sex with a girl who seems to be 14 -- with both Kelly and the girl referring to her genitals and other body parts as being 14 years old.

    It's still unclear when the tape was shot, but Avenatti said he was sure it fell within the statue of limitations.

    R&B star R. Kelly was indicted Friday in Chicago on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The charges stem from a newly discovered video found by attorney Michael Avenatti that allegedly shows him having sex with a 14-year-old girl, The Chicago Sun-Times and TMZ reported, citing court records.

    The reports say the singer's first court date is March 8.

    Avenatti, who was quiet about his 10-month "investigation" of Kelly on behalf of multiple clients, issued another of his bombastic statements in response to the indictment. In a tweet, he simply wrote, "It's over."

    When Avenatti announced the existence of the new video last week, he told USA TODAY in an interview: "This is a bombshell of epic proportions. It’s over, after nearly two decades of abuse by R. Kelly. He will not survive this."

    The indictment of Kelly, 52, culminates nearly two decades of allegations, one failed criminal trial, a surging #MuteR.Kelly campaign, a breakup with his recording label, and the airing of a Kelly-damning film series, "Surviving R. Kelly," in January.

    That six-part film on Lifetime examined the long-standing allegations of sexual misconduct against Kelly, including sex with underage girls and accusations that he trapped scores of female fans in a "sex cult" that cut them off from their families and subjected them to degrading abuse.

    Despite the years of hints and allegations, Kelly has been charged with a crime only once: He was tried on multiple counts of child pornography – stemming from a different video involving a different underage girl – in Chicago in 2008, six years after he was indicted in that case.

    However, the video in that case was not clear and the alleged teenage victim in the video refused to testify against Kelly at the trial. Within hours of getting the case, the jury acquitted him on all counts and Kelly walked free, back to his life as a rich and famous singer-songwriter and R&B superstar.

    Now he's being prosecuted almost 11 years later amidst a sea change in attitudes among law enforcement and in society about sexual abuse, sex-crimes prosecutions, defendants and accusers.

    If there is a second Kelly trial, it will take place in the wake of the #MeToo movement, turbocharged by the naming and shaming of powerful men in entertainment and media taken down over the last two years by accusations of sexual misconduct.

    Story developing.

    CHICAGO
    The Latest on charges against singer R. Kelly (all times local):
    12:50 p.m.

    Chicago prosecutors have charged R&B star R. Kelly with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse, according to media reports citing court records.

    Friday's charges come after years of allegations directed at Kelly, accusing the now 52-year-old of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls. Through his lawyers, he has consistently denied them.

    Kelly, whose legal name is Robert Kelly, is one of the top-selling recording artists of all time. He has won multiple Grammys, including for his hit-song, "I Believe I Can Fly."

    Jurors acquitted Kelly of child pornography charges at a 2008 trial. Those charges stemmed from a video prosecutors alleged showed Kelly having sex with a girl as young as 13.

    Attorney Michael Avenatti said last week that he recently gave Chicago prosecutors new video evidence of Kelly having sex with an underage girl.
    ___

    12:25 p.m.
    Attorney Michael Avenatti says he has evidence R. Kelly and his "enablers" paid witnesses and others to "rig" the outcome of the R&B star's 2008 trial, when he was acquitted on child pornography charges.

    Avenatti told The Associated Press that's one piece of information he'll present at a news conference Friday in Chicago.

    Kelly has denied allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls for years. His attorney didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.

    Avenatti said last week he gave the Cook County State's Attorney's office a videotape he says shows Kelly having sex with an underage girl.

    On Thursday, two women said Kelly picked them out of a crowd at Baltimore after-party in the mid-1990s and had sex with one of them, who was 16.

    One night I watched a segment of "Surviving R. Kelly" to see what it was all about, not knowing anything about him.

    It was absolutely heartbreaking to see parents of one young daughter, (at the time, 17 now older) that got sucked into his realm. Searching and trying for years, they got wind she was at one of his apartments and went to see if she would open the door but she wouldn't answer, even though the mom saw her at the window. They called the police but they were unable to legally do anything about it, so they left heartbroken.

    These are the men that have a very special place prepared for them in hell!!!

    That was an eye opening series for sure. I always heard rumors but they were nothing more than that. He is a sick and depraved piece of s&*t.

    Good news!!! I know it's only a start and trials do take time but the sooner he gets in prison the better!

    All I can think of is his hold on those girls and that this just might be the catalyst to spring them from his mind control grip.

    we can HOPE and PRAY that the tide is turning -but I'm betting its simply an anomaly in our downward plunge. sorry to be so cynical - but i noticed that the Smells-a-lot has just been "written out" of a few episodes by his employer rather than fired. the same employer he (allegedly) tried to scam more $$$ from with this HOAX. the employer is "waiting for the JUST-US system to work". since kamela-toe is his aunt and his parents are so well connected to the Angela Davis style of black activism I seriously doubt this POS will get anything beyond a tiny bit of probation - which will also likely be a complete joke.

    compare the handling of Smells-a-lot to the Papa John fiasco - or to Roseanne - or to any other WHITE "celebrity" who has fallen outside of the PC guidelines. an "improvement" - or "just a show for the sake of appearance"? and - why did Chicago's top cop stop short of calling Smells-a-lot out for his MAGA comments and the ANTI TRUMP bias of the media - without which NONE of this would have ever been noticed?

    find it hard to believe we're seeing a change - but I'd sure love to be wrong

    R. Kelly to spend another night in Cook County Jail after failing to post bond

    Posted 7:57 AM, February 24, 2019, by Erica Demarest, Erik Runge and Courtney Gousman, Updated at 08:49PM, February 24, 2019

    CHICAGO — R. Kelly spent Saturday night in Cook County Jail and will be there at least one more night after he failed to post 10 percent of his $1 million bond Sunday.

    The R&B singer is charged with sexually abusing a woman and three teens from 1998 to 2010.

    Defense attorney Steve Greenberg said the singer is being held in the medical section of the jail, away from other inmates, because it's easier for sheriff's deputies. Greenberg met with Kelly for about an hour Sunday and expects the singer to post bond Monday.

    "He's in high sprits considering what’s going on," Greenberg said. "I mean, no one wants to be in jail."

    When asked why it was taking so long for an international superstar to come up with money, Greenberg blamed banks being closed. He previously said Kelly "really doesn't have any money."

    "This is someone who should be wealthy," Greenberg said Saturday, noting that Kelly has lost money to mismanagement and bad contracts over the years. "I don't even think he owns the rights to 'I Believe I Can Fly.'"

    Kelly was dropped from his record label, is behind on rent and owes more than $161,000 in child support. Greenberg said Kelly planned to pay that debt.
    Kelly is slated to appear before a judge at the Leighton Criminal Court Building, 2650 S. California Ave., on Monday.

    Prosecutors this weekend laid out their case against Kelly — detailing abuse allegations that span 12 years and involve four separate victims.

    Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. called the accusations “disturbing” before setting bail at $1 million. Kelly, 52, needs to post $100,000, or 10 percent of the total bail amount, to go free.

    Should he be released, the judge ordered, Kelly is banned from contact with minors. He must also surrender his passport.

    Kelly is charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Each carries a possible sentence of three to seven years; probation without prison time is also an option.

    According to prosecutors, Kelly met the first of the four victims in this case in May 1998 as the girl celebrated her 16th birthday at a restaurant. Kelly’s manager gave the girl a business card with the singer’s phone number on it.

    The girl soon visited Kelly’s Near West Side studio at 865 N. Larrabee St., where Kelly had sex with the girl despite “difficulty maintaining an erection,” Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said. The teen was sent home with an envelope of money.
    Prosecutors allege similar encounters happened monthly for a year.

    Foxx said the second victim in this case was 14 years old when she was videotaped having sex with Kelly at his Olympia Fields home. A witness was asked to retrieve the tape in 2001 and later gave it to authorities.

    In the video, prosecutors said, the girl repeatedly tells Kelly she’s 14.
    The third victim was a 24-year-old hairdresser who worked for Kelly in February 2003 when he attacked her inside his Near West Studio, prosecutors allege.

    Kelly is accused of trying to force the woman to perform oral sex before masturbating in front of her, ejaculating on her and spitting in her face multiple times.

    Semen on the woman’s shirt was a match to Kelly’s DNA, according to Illinois State Police.

    Prosecutors allege Kelly met the final victim in this case, a 16-year-old girl, outside a Chicago court hearing in 2008. Kelly was on trial for child pornography at the time; he was later acquitted of all charges. The girl wanted Kelly’s autograph.

    Foxx said the two had a sexual relationship that lasted several months. Kelly is accused of spitting on the girl, slapping her and choking her.

    A 6-part Lifetime documentary called “Surviving R. Kelly” recently catapulted the singer back into the spotlight. In the show, alleged victims and Kelly’s close friends accuse the singer of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia.

    "Everything in that documentary was a rehash of things they’ve known for years," Greenberg said. "The police have investigated, the prosecutors investigated. The jury heard [it], and everybody rejected it."

    Last month, Foxx made a public plea for victims to come forward, calling the allegations against Kelly "sickening."

    Update,

    snip,

    Jail spokeswoman Sophia Ansaria said Kelly had not posted bail as of late Monday morning. The case was assigned to Cook County Associate Judge Lawrence Flood. Kelly’s next court date is March 22.

    Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, told The Associated Press on Sunday that coordination of the bail payment is complicated, but that Kelly could be released as early as Monday or Tuesday.

    In arguing for bail within the singer’s ability to pay, Greenberg told a judge over the weekend that Kelly wasn’t wealthy despite decades of success creating hit songs. The lawyer blamed mismanagement, bad contracts and other issues for his client’s financial woes.

    R. Kelly Taken Into Custody After Child Support Hearing

    Kelly has pleaded not guilty to the 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse that he faces
    By Staff and wire reports


    Published 3 minutes ago

    R. Kelly was taken back into custody in Cook County Wednesday just after he appeared at a child support hearing at Chicago's Daley Center.

    The Cook County Sheriff's office confirmed Kelly in custody Wednesday afternoon and would be taken to the Cook County Jail. It remained unclear how long Kelly would be held or why he was taken into custody.

    Kelly was seen being escorted out of court as lawyers continued to argue, according to reports from inside the courtroom.

    The R&B singer who is out on bail in a criminal case accusing him of sexually abusing four women years ago, including three who were underage at the time, didn't appear to say anything as he walked past a throng of reporters into the courtroom on Wednesday.

    David France, manager for Kelly's ex-wife Andrea Kelly, told the Chicago Sun-Times that the singer hadn't made a child support payment that was due by late Tuesday.
    Kelly, who previously spent three nights in jail, has pleaded not guilty to the 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse that he faces. "CBS This Morning" broadcast part of an interview with Kelly earlier Wednesday in which he said the allegations against him are all lies.

    "Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. But just use your common sense," he said. "How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I've been through — oh right now I just think I need to be a monster, and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don't let them eat, and don't let them out."

    R. Kelly had to have somebody else pay his back child support. Otherwise he would still be sitting in jail. I wonder who made his payment?

    Probably Oprah!
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    it's easy to figure out.

    he has lots of royalties that will come in the future. the are sharks out there - "factors" - that will willingly loan him the cash on the basis of them. think how may people have covered "i believe i can fly".

    plus many albums out and in the pipeline.

    of course, that leaves hm essentially broke, but so what . . . lol

    Pennsylvania Man Claims He Provided Police With Tape Of R. Kelly Sexually Abusing Young Girls

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A Pennsylvania man says he gave police a new tape that he claims shows singer R. Kelly sexually abusing young girls. Gary Davis said he discovered it while cleaning out an old videotape collection.

    Davis did not get into specifics about what was on the tape, and his attorney, Gloria Allred, said she couldn’t be certain the man on the tape is Kelly.

    Davis said what he saw was disgusting.

    “I have a daughter,” Davis said, “and nobody’s daughter should ever be subjected to anything like that.”

    Kelly is facing criminal charges for allegedly assaulting four women, three of whom were underage.

    Steve Greenberg, an attorney for Kelly, said the man on the tape is not his client.
