R. Kelly Finally Posts Bail

R. Kelly fails to make $100,000 bail as lawyer says he “really doesn’t have any money”

An attorney for R. Kelly entered a not-guilty plea Monday on behalf of the R&B singer, who faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, the Associated Press reported.

The singer was indicted last Friday in Cook County, Ill. Kelly's lawyer, Steve Greenberg, said Kelly's ongoing legal issues have left his finances a "mess," but that the singer hopes to post bail by Tuesday. Kelly also reportedly owes money in unpaid rent.

His next hearing was scheduled for March 22. He was acquitted on child pornography charges in 2008, but the accusations against him have continued to mount. The allegations date back as far as 1998 and span more than a decade.

Kelly has denied the charges and maintained his innocence. "No one has shown us any evidence that he's done anything wrong". But she said none of her clients are included in the Cook County case.

Kelly's surprising money problems go well beyond his inability to post bail.

Avenatti said the second video involves a 14-year-old girl. Prosecutors allege that he sexually abused four women, including three who were minors at the time.

Prosecutors say there is video that shows multiple sex acts, allegedly with Kelly and a 14-year-old girl.

TMZ's sources say at some point, Kelly is seen choking the young girl while having anal intercourse.

A judge set the Grammy-winning singer's bond at $1 million, and he was required to pay 10 percent ($100,000) to be released.

If Kelly is released from jail, he has been ordered not to have any contact with any of the alleged victims, witnesses, or anyone under the age of 18.

R.Kelly is presently being detained at a police facility in Chicago after failing to meet up with his $1m bail bond. He told the judge, "Contrary to the song, Mr. Kelly doesn't like to fly".

The fourth and final victim was identified as J.P., and the incidents she was involved in led to the final three sexual abuse charges against Kelly.

Avenatti, 48, who is now representing six clients - two alleged victims, two parents and two "whistleblowers" - in the investigation against Kelly shared screenshots from the alleged sex tape on his Twitter account and addressed them further during a press conference held on Friday.
