Will this time be different for R. Kelly?


Kelly, who was charged Friday, is accused of sexually abusing four individuals, three of whom were under the age of 17 at the time of the alleged crimes, which took place between 1998 and 2010.

In addition to the aggravated sex abuse charges, Kelly, 52, is being investigated by the state's attorney in IL for alleged nonpayment of child support to his ex-wife, Drea Kelly, totaling over $160,000 - this, according to TMZ.

Records show the "Ignition" hitmaker will face court on March 8 for the charges but his attorney, Steven Greenberg, insists he has not been notified of Kelly's charges.

Kelly, was released from the Cook County jail on Monday night after someone close to him posted the bond following his sexual abuse case. On Saturday afternoon, Greenberg told reporters that his client's finances are "a mess", and that "he really doesn't have any money". Kelly was released after Love, who is 47 and from Romeoville, Illinois, made the payment on Monday.

There are multiple logistical issues that could have thwarted Kelly's efforts to pay over the weekend, said Joseph Lopez, a criminal defense attorney in Chicago not connected to the Kelly case. Another alleged victim, also 16, asked for his autograph outside a court hearing for his 2008 child pornography trial.

"He's not a monster, he's not", she said before adding, "He's been nothing but a gentleman to me". Now, it appears that attorney Michael Avenatti has additional evidence against the singer that he plans on turning over to prosecutors. Kelly was acquitted on all 14 charges.

R. Kelly has allegedly struggled to pay his child support fees, according to court documents reviewed by CNN. "Mr. Kelly is strong, he's got a lot of support and he's going to be vindicated on all these charges".

"No one wants to be jail", Greenberg said. He said the footage from 1999 or 2000 is about 55 minutes long, but he did not say if it was the same 14-year-old girl seen in the first video he turned over to the authorities. The fourth victim was 24 years old at the time of incident, but the document describes Kelly masturbating on her, and Chicago authorities have the shirt she was wearing at the time. Greenberg told the judge that Kelly isn't wealthy despite decades of success creating hit songs.

"He's a rock star".

Kelly has always been trailed by allegations that he preyed upon underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves.

At Friday's news conference, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx detailed all of the charges against the singer, which are each Class 2 felonies.
