A new case has been filed against R. Kelly in Chicago and court records show he's being brought up on 11 new felony counts of sexual abuse. Details inside...

Prosecutors in Cook County have reportedly filed new sex abuse charges against Robert "R. Kelly" Kelly, adding 11 felony counts of sexual abuse. Some of the charges carry a potential sentence of up to 30 years in prison - the most serious he has ever faced.

As you know, he was previously hit with 10 charges of aggravated sexual abuse back in February that involved four victims - three of which were underage at the time of the alleged assaults. He plead not guilty to all of the charges.

The abuse in question allegedly took place in January 2010. There aren't many details, but the new case may not involve a new victim, since the initials of the victim in the latest case are the same as one of victims in the cases previously charged.

Here's a list of the new charges filed against the R&B singer: four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault by force, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a victim between the ages of 13 to 16.

It's unclear (for now) if the sex videos lawyer Michael Avenatti found allegedly featuring Kelly having sex with an underaged girl have anything to do with the new charges. He's representing several victims in the first case. “We’ll see what the charges are, and we’ll proceed accordingly,” R. Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg said about the new charges. “I know this much: it’s old. They’re allegations from years ago.”

The four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault have been classified as "Class X" felonies, which carry a potential sentence of up to 30 years in prison if he's found guilty. The 10 charges he copped in February were lower-level felonies that only held maximum sentences of up to seven years. You'll recall, after Kelly was charged in February, he turned himself in to police and then was freed on a $1 million bond.

The 52-year-old singer is due to appear in court on the new case June 6th.
