R Kelly charged with sexual offenses, to appear in court soon
R Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of sexual offenses with some including underaged victims. The 52-year RnB singer is expected to show up in court on March 8 in Chicago where he lives.
US media who have court records say the victims are four women who were age 13 and 16 at the time the abuse took place.
R Kelly has been facing sexual abuse allegations for decades now but has never been convicted for any of them.
Speaking with press, the singer’s lawyer stated that he hasn’t received any notification concerning the sexual offenses charges yet. He also stated that R Kelly maintains his innocence.
The charges are coming just months after a documentary ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ showed multiple women speaking up about the abuse they suffered in his hands.
