R. Kelly Unable to Bail Himself Out of Jail Amidst Money Problems

Lydia FlemingFeb 27, 2019

Kelly has now been charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The singer was indicted last Friday in Cook County, Ill.

On Saturday, Kelly's bond was set at $1 million.

Records show the "Ignition" hitmaker will face court on March 8 for the charges but his attorney, Steven Greenberg, insists he has not been notified of Kelly's charges.

A judge on Saturday set bond at $1 million, requiring the Grammy Award-winning singer to pay 10 percent, or $100,000, to be released. She came to his defense and said, "If your friend was in trouble, wouldn't you bail them out?"

A few weeks ago, it was reported that attorney Michael Avenatti was in possession of a new 42-minute R. Kelly sex tape, of which was allegedly made with an underage girl in a similar fashion as the original sex tape that was uncovered over 15 years ago. Greenberg told Duncan and Gauthier that Kelly "hopes" to post bond sometime Monday afternoon.

They fought a third war in 1979 over East Pakistan, which gained its independence with the help of India and became Bangladesh. Pakistan called the attack a "grave aggression" and promised a "timely and effective response" by its own military.

"R. Kelly's first stop after getting out of jail is the McDonald's in River North", tweeted Sun-Times reporter Nader Issa.

The attorney says he has learned of a third tape but did not provide details about it.

Those include an instance of "contact between Robert Kelly's penis and H.W's sex organ, ' an instance where the contact was with 'H.W's mouth" and when 'Robert Kelly touched his penis to H.W's breast'. Though the more infamous accusations against Kelly involve underage victims, not all the women who allege sexual abuse by him were under the age of consent at the time of the incidents.

After the hearing, Greenberg told reporters that Kelly did not force anyone to have sex.

She said one of the alleged victims gave authorities a shirt she wore during an alleged encounter with Kelly, which later tested positive for Kelly's DNA. In any case, it's possible that that those child support payments are the very last thing on Kelly's mind at the moment, since he's reportedly facing as much as 70 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Kelly has long denied wrongdoing. Another alleged victim, also 16, asked for his autograph outside a court hearing for his 2008 child pornography trial.

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.
