Embattled R&B singer, R. Kelly 52 has been released from jail in Chicago on Monday after posting bail following multiple charges of criminal sexual abuse.
The release came hours after he pleaded not guilty to 10 felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He’s accused of sexually assaulting four women between 1998 and 2010 and his alleged victims include three who were aged between 13 and 17 at the time.
Kelly stopped by a Golden Arches downtown after posting bail following multiple charges of criminal sexual abuse, to which he plead not guilty, as ourt documents show his bail was paid by a 47-year-old woman from the Chicago suburb of Romeoville, Illinois. She listed herself as a “friend” of Kelly.
Cook County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said, that Kelly posted $100,000 , which is 10 percent of the $1 million bond set Saturday, after spending three days behind bars.
The terms of Kelly’s release prohibit him from having any contact with females under the age of 18.
Attorney Michael Avenatti, who said he represents two Kelly accusers, said his legal team gave prosecutors a second video Monday that shows Kelly sexually abusing a minor. Avenatti previously gave prosecutors video evidence that he said showed Kelly having sex with an underage girl.
