    Judge approves arrest warrant for R. Kelly, charged in sex abuse case

    By Sam Charles,Andy Grimm andMichael Sneed




    A Cook County judge has approved an arrest warrant for embattled R&B superstar R. Kelly, who was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Cook County Friday morning, records show.
    His first court date is listed as March 8, according to records.

    His attorney, Steven Greenberg, said early Friday afternoon that he had not been notified that his client had been charged. Greenberg has said in the past that his client denies any wrongdoing.
    Sources told the Sun-Times that Cook County prosecutors appeared before a judge Friday afternoon to sign off on the warrant for Kelly.
    Michael Avenatti, a well known attorney who said he recently provided a videotape of R. Kelly having sex with a minor to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, applauded prosecutors for filing charges. It is unclear if the charges are related to the videotape the attorney provided.
    “The day of reckoning has arrived” for R Kelly, Avenatti said in a tweet.

    R. Kelly charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse

    R. Kelly has been charged with multiple counts of criminal sex abuse involving four victims — including minors — in his native Chicago, according to reports Friday, citing court records.

    The R&B star was hit with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse in Cook County on Friday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

    The charges involve incidents from 1998 to 2010, the news outlet reported, noting that at least three of the alleged victims are minors. Prosecutors say the minors were between 13 and 16 years old.

    According to TMZ, nine of the 10 counts against 52-year-old Kelly, whose real name is Robert Kelly, involve the young teens.

    One of the victims is the subject of four different counts, and there are a total of four alleged victims, according to the celebrity gossip site.

    Sources connected to Kelly told TMZ that the singer plans to voluntarily turn himself into authorities Friday night.

    The charges come after news outlets reported this week that a grand jury convened in Cook County in connection to a sex tape that allegedly showed Kelly assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

    Attorney Michael Avenatti, who is representing multiple alleged victims of the “I Believe I Can Fly Singer,” said last week that he handed over the videotape to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.

    “Including in the evidence we recently uncovered and recovered is a VHS videotape of Mr. Kelly engaging in multiple sexual assaults of a girl underage,” Avenatti said in a statement last week on Twitter. “This tape, which is clear, is approximately 45 minutes in length and has never previously been publicly disclosed or, until recently, provided to law enforcement.

    “As part of our effort to ensure Mr. Kelly is finally held accountable for his repeated sexual assaults of minors spanning over two decades, we have provided extensive information, including the videotape described above and witnesses, to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx in Chicago,” the statement read.

    Avenatti, who is best known as the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, applauded the charges Friday in a tweet, saying, “After 25 years of serial sex abuse and assault of underage girls, the day of reckoning for R Kelly has arrived.”

    In another tweet minutes before that, Avenatti wrote: “It’s over.”

    Two women testified for the grand jury over the past week, including one who provided physical evidence, TMZ reported. They were among as many as a dozen accusers to testify.

    Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenburg, told the Chicago Sun-Times early Friday afternoon that he had not been notified that his client was charged and maintained as he has in the past that Kelly denies any wrongdoing.

    Kelly has received multiple Grammys, including for hit song “I Believe I Can Fly.”

    At a 2008 trial, jurors acquitted Kelly of child pornography charges, which stemmed from a video prosecutors alleged showed Kelly having sex with a girl as young as 13.

    Kelly has denied allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls for years.

    Unlike last time, it looks like at least 2 of the victims are committed to testifying. And brought the receipts (physical evidence).

    I heard on the news this morning that he’s in custody

    R Kelly: Singer charged with sexual abuse in Chicago

    Image captionThe singer is known for songs such as Ignition and I Believe I Can FlyR Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, at least nine of which involve minors.
    The R&B star, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, has faced decades of claims of sexual abuse against women and teenagers below the age of consent.
    He has never been convicted and has previously denied other allegations.
    An arrest warrant was issued, and the 52-year-old turned himself in to police in Chicago later on Friday. His lawyer says he is "shell-shocked".
    Steve Greenberg told The Associated Press that his client was "extraordinarily disappointed and depressed" by the charges and maintains his innocence.
    The indictment come just weeks after a documentary series called Surviving R Kelly aired.
    It contained decades of allegations of abuse against R Kelly, from many women, including the singer's ex-wife.
    What are the allegations?

    Prosecutors in Cook County announced the aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges, involving four victims, on Friday.
    Image copyrightGETTY IMAGES
    Image captionKelly handed himself into Chicago police custody on Friday nightThey say they took place between 1998 and 2010. Documents say at least three of the victims were aged between 13 and 16 at the time of their reported assaults.
    Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx said he could face a maximum of seven years in prison for each count.
    A no-bail arrest warrant has been issued for Kelly.
    Mr Greenberg, his lawyer, told AP that he had offered to sit down with prosecutors before the filing to describe "why these charges are baseless" but said they refused.
    How did the charges come about?

    Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx had urged women to come forward after the documentary series aired.


    Lawyer Michael Avenatti has said he is representing six people, including two alleged victims, making allegations against Kelly. At least one of the victims is included in Friday's indictment, he said.
    Image copyrightGETTY IMAGES
    Image captionKelly was previously acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008Mr Avenatti came forward last week to say he had uncovered and handed over previously unreleased footage showing Kelly engaging in sex with an underage girl to prosecutors.
    The lawyer says the 40-minute tape, believed to be shot in 1999, shows him having sexual intercourse and engaging in other sexual and lewd acts with a 14-year-old. He has alleged both Kelly and the girl "repeatedly" reference her age as being 14 in the video.
    Kelly was previously acquitted over another video tape of a similar nature in 2008.

    US broadcaster CNN has said it has seen the new footage and described it as "clear and explicit".
    The charges come one day after lawyer Gloria Allred said she was representing two new women making fresh allegations against Kelly.
    Decades of allegations

    Kelly has faced, and denied, accusations about sexual and physical abuse for decades.
    In 1994 it was reported he married 15-year-old singer and musical protégé Aaliyah at a secret ceremony in Chicago when he was 27. US media said she had lied about her age on the certificate, and the marriage was later annulled.
    In 2002 the star was charged with child pornography in Chicago over footage that appeared to show him engaging in intercourse, oral sex, urination, and other sexual acts with a girl said to be 13 or 14.


    The case took six years to go to trial. Both Kelly and the girl alleged to be in the video denied it was them. Eventually the jury acquitted Kelly of all 14 charges against him.
    Image copyrightGETTY IMAGES
    Image captionPeople have been calling for a boycott on Kelly's music with the hashtag #MuteRKellyIn 2017, Kelly was forced to deny allegations that he was holding a number of young women captive in a so-called "abusive cult" after a bombshell report from Buzzfeed News.
    He has also been sued privately by a number of women, including some who allege underage sexual relationships and another who says he "intentionally" infected her with a sexually transmitted disease.
    The singer has continued to make music throughout the allegations.
    There have been calls to boycott Kelly's music- both recordings and performances - with people using the social media hashtag #MuteRKelly.
    Throughout 2018 women continued to come forward publicly alleging abuse.
    The singer was the subject of the documentary series Surviving R Kelly earlier this year.
    Across six episodes, a catalogue of women accused him of sexual and emotional abuse - including several who said they were underage when sexual relations began.
    After the series aired, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx made a plea for victims to come forward and report - saying she was "sickened" by the allegations “.

    I read somewhere that this 'friend' has a daycare amongst her businesses. If I had a kid there I'd be making alternative arrangements.
