State Attorney and R. Kelly's lawyer respond after bail set at $1M

After the hearing, Cook County state's attorney Kimberly Foxx addressed the press and provided additional details on each of the indictments. 

The first victim, identified as H.W., allegedly met Kelly when she was celebrating her 16th birthday and his manager gave her the artist's card. 

The victim's mother approached the manager and informed him that the girl was only 16. The girl later took the card out of her mother's purse and contacted Kelly, who told her to skip school and come to his studio, Foxx said.

The pair allegedly had regular sexual contact including oral and vaginal intercourse about once a month between May 26, 1998 and May 25, 1999. Kelly is charged with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for the alleged offenses involving that victim.  

The second indictment is based on a disturbing video purportedly showing Kelly have sex with a 14-year-old girl identified as R.L., in an incident that took place between September 26, 1998 and September 25, 2001.

That incident resulted in two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse - one for 'contact between Robert Kelly's penis and R.L's sex organ' one for contact with her 'mouth.'

The allegations came to light in 2001 when a witness having a conversation with Kelly and his associates was asked to retrieve video showing the artist having sexual intercourse with the victim. The witness turned the video over to police. 

The third indictment with one count of aggravated sexual assault involved a 24-year-old hairdresser, identified as L.W., who was hired to braid Kelly's hair. 

Prosecutors say that on February 18, 2003, Kelly told the woman that he didn't want her to braid his hair but wanted a head massage as he exposed his penis to her. 

He then allegedly grabbed her head and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him. When she resisted, Kelly ejaculated on her and spit in her face several times, prosecutors said. Kelly's DNA was recovered from the alleged victim's shirt.  

The fourth victim, identified as J.P., met Kelly when she asked for his autograph while attending his 2008 trial on child pornography charges. 

According to an indictment detailing three counts of aggravated sexual assault, the pair engaged in oral and vaginal sex between a period from May 2009 to January 2010. She was between 13 and 17 at the time. 

Prosecutors say Kelly would often spit on the victim, slap her in the face, choke her and ejaculate on her. She saved a shirt from one of the incidents and turned it over to police, who found a DNA match to Kelly. 

If convicted on all 10 counts, Kelly could face up to 70 years behind bars. His arraignment has been scheduled for February 28.

Kelly surrendered on Friday night at the 1st District Chicago police station, hours after the Cook County State's Attorney office issued a no bail warrant for his arrest.

In a booking photo released by the Chicago Police Department early Saturday, Kelly can be seen wearing a basic black hooded sweatshirt and an exhausted expression.  

Kelly arrived at the station in a large black van with tinted windows at around 8pm CST. He exited the vehicle wearing a puffy blue coat, entered the station house, was handcuffed and led away.

The 52-year-old did not respond as reporters shouted questions, including: 'Are you innocent?' and 'How do you explain the video?'

In response to a question about what he had to say 'to the black women of Chicago,' Kelly's attorney shot back: 'That's an offensive question.' 

Following Kelly's arrest, his attorney Steve Greenberg addressed reporters outside the station. 

He said that several of the charges are 'double jeopardy' because they 'involve the same girl' that Kelly was acquitted of producing child pornography with in 2008.

Greenberg went on to say that all of the accusations against Kelly, including those in the recent documentary Surviving R Kelly, are false.

'I think all the women are lying, yes. This has become: "Hey I can say R Kelly did something." Boom,' the lawyer said. '"Oh I met R Kelly once, he looked at me the wrong way." Boom, money.'

Greenberg also blasted celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti, who said last week that he had turned over to prosecutors damning video evidence of Kelly performing sex acts on a 14-year-old girl.

'I haven't seen Avenatti's tape,' Greenberg said. 'I wonder why [prosecutor] Kim Foxx isn't investigating him for disseminating child porn and watching child porn, which I'm sure he's done many times.'

Avenatti blasted back minutes later on Twitter: 'Steve Greenberg is exactly what R Kelly deserves. Happy to be living rent free in this guy's head.'

R KELLY INDICTMENTS

Robert Sylvester Kelly, 52, was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving four victims on Friday, February 22 in Chicago.

The victim's mother approached the manager and informed him that the girl was only 16. The girl later took the card out of her mother's purse and contacted Kelly, who told her to skip school and come to his studio, Foxx said.

VICTIM 2 - R.L., 14 years old 

  • Once incident between September 1998 to September 2001

The allegations came to light in 2001 when a witness having a conversation with Kelly and his associates was asked to retrieve video showing the artist having sexual intercourse with the victim, Foxx said. The witness turned the video over to police.

He then allegedly grabbed her head and tried to force her to perform oral sex on him. When she resisted, Kelly ejaculated on her and spit in her face several times, prosecutors said. Kelly's DNA was recovered from the victim's shirt. 

VICTIM 4 - J.P., under 17 years old

  • Repeated sexual contact between May 2009 and January 2010
  • Three counts of aggravated sexual assault

R. Kelly's lawyer says new charges may be from an old case

Upon news of his arrest, some of Kelly's accusers spoke out to express their gratitude. 

'When I first heard the news, I started crying because it was tears of joy,' Asante McGee told WSB-TV in Atlanta. 

She appeared in the Surviving R Kelly docuseries, in which she accused the singer of holding her in a Georgia home and abusing her six years ago - allegations that are unrelated to the criminal charges Kelly faces in Chicago.

'To know that we finally got an indictment after two decades, after him getting away with the allegations, it was a joyous moment for me,' McGee said. 'Just knowing the things that he was doing to those young girls was really sickening.'   

In a statement, Kelly's attorney said the singer is 'shell-shocked' by the sex abuse charges. 

Kelly has previously denied all allegations of assault and abuse through his lawyer. 

Aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 2 felony with a sentencing range of three to seven years in prison. He faces up to 70 years behind bars if convicted.

These new charges come one week after the emergence of a rape tape that allegedly features Kelly and a minor.

State attorney announces charges against a singer R. Kelly

Foxx had made a very public plea for accusers to come forward last month, and there could be more charges to come. 

This comes just one day after the Cook County State's Attorney's Office announced that Jussie Smollett had been indicted by a grand jury on a single charge of disorderly conduct for falsifying a police report in a suspected hate hoax. 

The same judge overseeing that case, Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr, has been assigned to Kelly's case.

Illinois is just one of the states where there is an open investigation into Kelly.

Lawyers for the Southern District of New York have also been meeting with alleged victims as well as agents from the IRS and FBI while the Department of Homeland Security has also opened up a probe.

The alleged rape tape was submitted to the State's Attorney's Office last week by Michael Avenatti. 

At the time, Avenatti said that he believed it showed Kelly and an underage minor whose age he guessed to be 14.

CNN then watched the tape as well, despite the fact that it is a federal crime to watch child pornography.

When asked if either party might be investigated for these actions, an FBI spokesperson declined to comment.

R Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving several victims including minors. He is seen above performing in 2016
Singer R Kelly is charged with TEN counts of sexual abuse

This all comes in the wake of the Lifetime series Surviving R Kelly.

The six-part docuseries ended on a devastating note, with the parents of one of the young women who had run away with Kelly seen throwing rocks at his studio windows trying to get the attention of their daughter.

When they called Chicago police however, the members of law enforcement were not able to legally enter the property.

Kelly had yet to be hit with any criminal charges  in the wake of the docuseries until Friday.

His manager however found himself in trouble with the law days after the series premired.

A police report filed in Georgia reveals that Don Russell texted and called Timothy Savage, the father of one of the alleged victims, to say it 'would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air.'

Russell later said that he and Kelly might have to release information that would destroy Savage, his family and his business.

Savage and his wife Jonelyn have been trying for years to get back their daughter Jocelyn, who ran off to be with Kelly shortly after meeting him backstage at a concert when she was only 17.

They believe that she is being held captive but the singer, but both Kelly and Jocelyn deny this is the case.

The report states that Savage called police shortly after 5am on the day of the incident.

The responding officer then arrived at the house before 5.45am, which is when Russell called Savage on the phone.

Savage was then able to put the phone on speaker so that the officer could hear everything that was being said by Russell.

'Don says several times that Timothy is providing Lifetime with false information, and that is he continues supporting the documentary that they (R Kelly / Don) would be forced to release information disproving Don,' reads the report.

It appears as if there is ANOTHER R. Kelly sex tape with a DIFFERENT underaged girl

R Kelly charged with TEN counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse  

  • R Kelly has been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse by the Cook County State's Attorney office 
  • A judge signed off on an arrest warrant for the singer, 52, on Friday afternoon in Chicago and his first court appearance is set for March 8
  • The alleged victims of most of these crimes are said to be between the ages of 13 and 16 according to records seen by DailyMail.com  
  • The singer has denied any wrongdoing or illegal activity through his lawyer 


These 10 counts involve four victims, at least three of whom are underage. 

Foxx had made a very public plea for accusers to come forward last month, and there could be more charges to come. 

This comes just one day after the Cook County State's Attorney's Office announced that Jussie Smollett had been indicted by a grand jury on a single charge of disorderly conduct for falsifying a police report. 

The speed with which Smollett was indicted had led some to question why the State's Attorney's Office seemed to be taking their time with Kelly but rushing through the Smollett case.  

Illinois is just one of the states where there is an open investigation into Kelly.

Lawyers for the Southern District of New York have also been meeting with alleged victims  as well as agents from the IRS and FBI while the Department of Homeland Security has also opened up a probe.

The rape tape was submitted to the State's Attorney's Office last week by Michael Avenatti. 

At the time, Avenatti said that he believed it showed Kelly and an underage minor who age he guessed to be 14.

CNN then watched the tape as well, despite the fact that it is a federal crime to watch child pornography.

Another was Kelly's lawyer, Steve Greenberg. 

He said he was 'just going to see what was going on' and 'was not the real estate guy'. 

Kelly's estate lawyer is Melvin Sims. 

He said on Tuesday that the situation was a 'manufactured emergency', that there was no real danger and that the judge had not thrown them out.

'We do feel like this was a manufactured emergency. There was no emergency here all along, and it seems the judge has sided with us,' he said. 

In her order on Tuesday, Judge Patrice Ball Reed said: 'It looks like people are living there, and that’s not good.   

'It’s a recording studio. It shouldn’t be a party place.' 

Another item she contested was a Christmas tree. 

'Christmas is over. This tree needs to go,' she said, according to The Chicago Tribune which attended Tuesday's proceedings. 

The studio is the scene of a distressing moment at the end of the ubiquitous Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly where the parents of a young woman who lives with the rapper throw stones on the windows to try to contact her.  

It has also been the site of multiple protests since accusations of sexual trafficking mounted against the disgraced star. 

Kelly has always maintained that he has done no wrong.

R. Kelly’s Lawyer Confirms His Client Married Aaliyah At 15-Years-Old

'I don't give a f*** what's going on': Defiant R Kelly performs to a packed club in Chicago despite multiple investigations into claims he raped and enslaved underage women {VIDEO} R Kelly In Concert - Detroit, MI

R. Kelly has finally confirmed to the public that he was indeed briefly married to Aaliyah–well, through his lawyer, at least.
Steve Greenberg appeared on Good Morning America in an effort to address the recent allegations of rape, abuse, and sexual misconduct that are being stacked up against his client following the Lifetime docuseries, Surviving R Kelly. When Kelly’s representative was asked if his client had ever been in a relationship with a woman who was below the age of consent, he replied that the singer ‘absolutely’ denied being with any underage girls, which was quickly called into question.


“Was he married to Aaliyah when she was 15?” asked reporter Linsey Davis. Greenberg replied, surprisingly admitting that Kelly did marry her, but deflecting onto another famous relationship.
“He was married to her when she was 15. Elvis was married to Priscilla,” replied Greenberg, who did not pause or miss a beat. This was a reference to the marriage of Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla, who was almost 22 when she married the rock star, which she completed with her parents’ blessing.


The reported continued to hound Greenberg on the subject saying, “So then, 15 is not of the age of legal consent, right?” But of course, Greenberg had an excused for Kelly, claiming he wasn’t in the wrong here because Aaliyah was dishonest.
“Right except my understanding is that she did not claim to be 15. And in order to get married she had to lie about her age,” claimed the lawyer. “And he is saying he had no idea?” inquired Davis. To which Greenberg confirmed: “No idea.”
But Aaliyah’s age still isn’t the only thing that’s disheartening about her relationship with Kelly.


Jim DeRogatis, the reporter who has pursued the sexual and physical abuse allegations against R. Kelly since 2000, was a guest on the New York Times’ podcast series The Popcast with host Jon Caramanica last year. During the conversation, DeRogatis recalled when he first went through the documents that related to R. Kelly and Aaliyah’s annulment.

“The annulment of the Aaliyah marriage and Aaliyah’s legal claim against him had been sealed in Detroit…they were sealed by the court but those documents were provided to me,” DeRogatis revealed. “It’s a harrowing document, a non-disclosure agreement on both her part and Kelly’s, vowing not to pursue further legal claims for physical abuse. So it wasn’t just an underage sexual relationship, he hit her, allegedly, according to that court document.”


The marriage was reported by Vibe magazine shortly after the release of Aaliyah’s debut album,  Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number. The magazine found that the official Illinois wedding certificate falsified Aaliyah’s age, listing the late singer as 18.
But the aforementioned document–vowing not to pursue further legal claims for physical abuse against Kelly–hasn’t really been mentioned when discussing various allegations, even in the Surviving R. Kelly documentary series that has been the catalyst for all the current R. Kelly conversations.

On Wednesday, two women reached out to the Cook County State Attorney's Office with claims against Kelly.

That came on the heels of State's Attorney Kim Foxx urging any victims or witnesses with information to reach out.

There are still no criminal charges against Kelly in Chicago at this time, and no investigation has been launched as of yet into the singer.  

It was also revealed on Wednesday that Kelly's manager threatened to ruin a man and his family in a series of harassing texts and phone calls after learning he had participated in the new Lifetime series.

Don Russell texted and called Timothy Savage to say it 'would be best for him and his family if the documentary does not air,' according to a police report in Georgia.

Russell later said that he and Kelly might have to release information that would destroy Savage, his family and his business. 

Savage and his wife Jonelyn have been trying for years to get back their daughter Jocelyn, who ran off to be with Kelly shortly after meeting him backstage at a concert when she was only 17. 

They believe that she is being held captive but the singer, but both Kelly and Jocelyn deny this is the case.

The report, which was first obtained by CBS 46, states that Savage called police shortly after 5am on the day of the incident. 

The responding officer then arrived at the house before 5.45am, which is when Russell called Savage on the phone.

Savage was then able to put the phone on speaker so that the officer could hear everything that was being said by Russell.

'Don says several times that Timothy is providing Lifetime with false information, and that is he continues supporting the documentary that they (R Kelly / Don) would be forced to release information disproving Don,' reads the report.

'Don advised Timothy that the information would ruin him, his reputation, business and family, because it would show him a liar.'

This is actually the second time one of the singer's managers has threatened Savage, who previously filed a police report against James Mason.

There is now an outstanding warrant for Mason after he failed to respond to police when they asked to question him about the 'threats' he made to Savage. 

The Savages first spoke out in an interview with BuzzFeed on in 2017 which contained worrying allegations that Kelly had been holding a handful of young women in cult like conditions and effectively treating them as his sexual slaves for years.

Some former members of his entourage vouched for their concern. Three separate women said they were all forced to subscribe to his rules.

They said they were told when to eat, bathe, sleep and had to perform sexual acts on one another which the singer then recorded.

It looks as though R.Kelly won’t survive the docu-series Surviving R.Kelly.  The long-time embattled singer who for years has been able to escape charges of physical and sexual abuse against women, rumors of keeping women in a “sex cult” and decades of allegations that he has a penchant for teenage girls will probably not be able to do his Houdini act this time.

The documentary gave faces to the stories many already “knew” about that indicated this musical genius wasn’t right.

It was 2002 when I first sat down with the prolific singer-songwriter to talk about a tape that many said showed Kelly and a 14-year old engaging in sex acts including him urinating on her. During our interview he denied any inappropriate behavior with minors. He chose not to address my questions about Aaliyah, his teen singing protégé that Kelly had secretly married. Later that marriage would be annulled.  He would tell me during the interview he did not have inappropriate relationships with two young teens he settled lawsuits with.

He did admit he was no angel and was trying to get help for things he’d “done wrong” in his life, however according to Kelly none of those things included any wrongdoings with minors. He told the world not to believe what they where seeing on the tape because that was not him.  When the interview concluded Kelly asked me if I believed him. I said, “I didn’t know if that’s really you, but if that were my daughter on the tape I’d be looking for you!”

Time’s Up for the Pied Piper of R&B

R.Kelly has been musically telling us for years he’s a freak and we loved it. For many, the nastier the better! I’ve asked some of his female fans why they loved the songs of his that are misogynistic, why they excused them? They would say, ‘He ain’t singing about me!” Really? In his mind I wondered. Again, was our choice jams over justice? Was this helping him justify his treatment of women?

Times changed, the Me Too and Times Up movements bring a different sensibility to how we listen to abuse claims.

The women presented in the documentary personified the rumors and innuendos that have been swirling for years. You no longer saw them as faceless accusers, they became the faces of your daughter, your little cousin, your sister, your mother!

Throughout all of this, Kelly continues to deny the claims and is now fighting back against some of his accusers. Some in the court of public opinion say Kelly is just being setup by gold-diggers and haters. They blame the women, their parents, and the media. Ardent supporters say R.Kelly is a victim, yet another example of a Black man being taken down.

Those people are a shrinking minority. In Robert Kelly’s case like others including: Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein and Matt Lauer one has to start to believe where there’s smoke there’s fire.

Let’s make sure that our critical eye(and ear) won’t change just in case R.Kelly drops another classic. Keeping our women safe must be more important than any slammin’ beat Mister Kelly can give us.

Witness: 'I Watched R Kelly Rape Underage Aaliyah' {VIDEO} Questlove Explains Why He Refused To Take Part In "Surviving R. Kelly"

The Roots drummer, Questlove, was forced to explain why he refused to take part in the R. Kelly docu-series after the show's producer, Dream Hampton, made the remarks during an interview with Shadow & Act.

“John Legend was the only one. I asked Jay-Z, I asked Mary J. Blige, I asked Lil Kim, Erykah Badu, Dave Chappelle...I mean, most people just don’t want to touch it. I remember Ahmir [”Questlove” Thompson] was like, ‘I would do anything for you but I can’t do this.’ It’s not because they support him, it’s because it’s so messy and muddy. It’s that turning away that has allowed this to go on.”

Fans were stunned to see Questlove's name in the tweet, and hit him up on Twitter to find out why he would not take part in Lifetime's "Surviving R. Kelly."


"I always thought Kels was trash. My reason for declining the RKelly docu that I support 10000000 percent is I didn’t wanna be in the ‘good times’ portion of the doc, like stanning for his ‘genius,’” Questlove tweeted.

“I was asked to talk about his genius. I do not nor have I EVER stanned for him.”

Dream then responded to Questlove, denying his claims.

Pearl Green lol lets be honest you common sense and have the knowledge of the reality of the law, but that will not happen for the rest of the idiots who just read and run with it, but wont questions what they read, and this is why i am waiting for the whole truth because it dont matter how much documentary lifetime produce there is someone out there who will respond with the real truth, and it is coming so let see how many people will be charge, and yes if he is so guilty why is he not charge, why hasnt he been arrested, after all the police are aware, they have searched his home for those cases they said there isnt anything they could do those girls were of age and refuse to leave, so again whats the real truth about R Kelly since every one seems to know

Comment by Pearl Green on January 7, 2019 at 2:03pm

I seen a portion of the report and like this video here I cut it short.    Do anyone have any idea how long it takes to build up, compile, edit and produce a video of such length?    All I here is he's this, he's that but none of these b****** have pending charges against him.    You can call him anything you want, but if you call him a criminal you have to press charges, if any exist.     I wonder if he wasn't famous would any of this be happening.   This insatiable hunger for fame and money cause me to give pause to anything these people say.   Not defending anyone but I will not be a part of a public execution, nor execution through the media...

lol i like it, well he is responding let see how far this will go now the question is how come he is not doing jail time, when will the real truth comes out

Comment by Cee Gee on January 7, 2019 at 8:59am

My take on this is simple.....I remember when he married Aaliyah!  I knew then that he was a perverted man.  It does not change the fact that the man can make some damn good music, whether singing it or writing it, he makes some damn good music.  Everyone knew what R.Kelly was doing and now here it is 20, 25 years later and now we are talking about it!  I am not going to judge him....no matter what he has done in this life, he will have to answer to the Most High.  I just pray that the victims, old and the ones trapped now, stay safe.

and by the way if all are true do those girls have fathers, their fathers should be locked up too, and that b**** sparkle is here to promote some dumb single, she wasnt comlaining when she was running around with R Kelly

Comment by mr1stroke on January 6, 2019 at 7:12pm

kathy m  I am sorry about your experience no girls or woman should go through that, but if we should have a serious conversation all that is going on now is not helping the victims, every one who are out there raising hell have special interest, they are not standing up for the victims, lets take for instance the Metoo movement those are a bunch of angry has been old sluts from hollywood who used to sleep around with those men, for money, movie roles, and fame, the first thing those women always said is that those men are like their brothers, now they are accusing thsoe exact same men, so they team up with a bunch of angry lesbians looking for attention, what do they stand for, is it jsutice or peace, well they think they are achieving something but dont realize by being hypocrites this all shall pass, they went hard behind Bill Cosby and he got locked up on the spot, but all those white males they have accused are out there making money, what justice is that, but we have a bunch of idiots supporting the nonesense, can someone please tell me what justice is that and justice for whom?

Comment by kathy m on January 6, 2019 at 7:00pm
I agree with HoeZee and Mr1Stroke. I not sure what the benefit is for talking about it now. We all knew what was going on as wrong as it was. As a woman who has been sexually assaulted, we do need to stand up and fight, but I feel this fight has taken on another form and I’m not feeling comfortable with it. At the end of the day R. Jelly has to answer to God for all he’s done. God did give him a gift, he is a musical genius that’s all and no one can take that from him. This is all too messy. SMDH
Comment by mr1stroke on January 6, 2019 at 5:14pm
HoeZee i agree if the law was not so broken and those who run the law were not idiots every one should be arrested
Comment by HoeZee on January 5, 2019 at 4:16pm

I do not in anyway shape form or fashion condone R.Kelly's action with having sex with young girls' but there is a big ass elephant in the room when it comes to this situation' . Many of the ppl in this doc have been getting money from R.Kelly and now there getting money to do the mini series, some of the women even admit to bringing in these preyed on young girls and even participated in the acts themselves!  So now you got 1 man being vilified for the acts that many help assist , partake and benefited from in the past and are now ready to once again receive a check and more for whatever agenda that is self serving for them ! SO FAIR IS FAIR ! LOCK ALL INVOLVED FOR BRINGING THEM IN, PARTICIPATING, TURNING A BLIND EYE ,ETC ETC ETC !!
