Yesterday, Cook County's State's Attorney Kim Fox announced the Grammy Award winning singer (real name Robert Sylvester Kelly) has been formally indicted by the Cook County grand jury on 10 charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse - a Class 2 felony - involving four victims, three of them under the age of 17. He will appear in bond court this afternoon. Arraignment is set for March 8th.

If convicted, the R&B singer faces three to seven years in prison for each count.

Following the press conference, the 52-year-old singer turned himself in to Chicago police Friday night. And news cameras followed his every move as he left his studio and made his way to the police station. He arrived in a dark colored van around 8:15 pm. He did not respond to any questions that were asked as he walked inside the building.

Here's a clip of him leaving his studio:

Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, said Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx folded under public pressure and that his client is an innocent man. "I think all the women are lying," Greenberg said.

Here's a clip of Kelly walking into the police station:

Since "Surviving R. Kelly" aired, people have been wondering about the well-being of Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, two young ladies still living with the singer. If you watched the docu-series, you saw Joycelyn and Azriel's parents desperately trying to get them back. They believe their daughters have been brainwashed and that's why they don't want to leave.

In the clips where Kelly is leaving his studio on his way to the police station, you can SEE both young ladies getting into a vehicle with the singer! Joycelyn's dad, Tim Savage, confirms his daughter was with him last night:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kelly has a lot of nerve. It's reported both the Savages and the Clarys are making their way to Chicago.

"Surviving R. Kelly" producer Dream Hampton said R. Kelly will have the young ladies front row at his bond hearing this afternoon.

 

 

 

 

Lawyer Michael Avenatti - who is repping 6 clients involved in the charges - held a press conference yesterday sharing details about the NEW alleged sex tape and released imagery surrounding new video evidence. On the 42-minute tape, the young lady and Kelly allegedly refer to her being 14-years-old multiple times.

He also sent out a message to Kelly's enablers (i.e. the managers, publicists, and others who allegedly allowed this to go on for 25 years) that he's coming after them as well because they are "just as guilty" as Kelly and they should be held responsible for allowing these "disgusting" acts to go on for so long.

Today, Avenatti tweeted that federal charges against R. Kelly are likely coming down the pipeline:

After Kelly turned himself in, his attorney, Steve Greenberg, told reporters one of the charges the R&B star faces appears to be tied to his child pornography case that went down in 2008.

"Double jeopardy should bar that case," Greenberg said. "He won that case."

R. Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, but lawyer Michael Avenatti believes he got away with it because the previous trial was "rigged," there was alleged obstruction of justice, and he's certain that will not be the case this time around.

Cook County's State's Attorney Kim Fox read off the initials of the victims during the press conference yesterday and one of the victims' initials match the name of the victim in the 2008 case. The timeline of that victim's abuse matches the timeline from the previous case. Also, Avenatti confirmed the young lady on the new video tape IS one of the four victims that was referred to in the indictment. 

Peep his conference below:

 

Lawyer Michael Avenatti responded to Greenberg's claims of double jeopardy and the personal attacks he has made against him and the victims: 

Also, Homeland Security Investigations is reportedly compiling evidence in an investigation of Kelly, according to an US Immigration and Customs Enforcement official. No details about the investigation were shared. A second grand jury was convened in the Southern District of New York, based on investigations by the F.B.I. and the I.R.S., according to the New Yorker.

R. Kelly will appear in bond court this afternoon. Stay tuned for the details....
