Kelly Released From Jail After Posting Bail

  • R. Kelly fails to make $100,000 bail as lawyer says he “really doesn’t have any money”

Avenatti said he obtained both tapes from two "whistleblowers" he also represents, but none of his clients appear in either video.

The alleged abuse took place over 12 years, Cook County State's Attorney Kimberly Foxx said.

He said he has also learned of a third video, but wouldn't specify what was on it.

During a hearing earlier Monday, Kelly's lawyer pleaded not guilty on his behalf to all 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse that he faces.

-This item has been corrected to reflect that Avenatti did not say whether the two videos he turned over to the authorities depict the same girl.

The rapper, who is the subject of new documentary Surviving R Kelly, made the plea in a Chicago courtroom via his attorney Steve Greenberg.

Kelly's next court date has been scheduled for March 22.

R. Kelly also has other financial woes that may prevent him from having enough money to post bail.

The R&B crooner was seen leaving Cook County Jail on Monday afternoon, wearing the same blue bubble jacket that he wore when he surrendered on Friday.

There are multiple logistical issues that could have thwarted Kelly's efforts to pay over the weekend, said Joseph Lopez, a criminal defense attorney in Chicago not connected to the Kelly case.

The singer-songwriter was arrested Friday on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari confirmed on Monday night R Kelly had raised the $100,000 bail, which was 10% of the $1m bond set by a judge over the weekend. One of the charges describes a videotape allegedly featuring Kelly having sex with a young girl, "the victim". At the trial, more than a dozen witnesses identified the person in the video as an underage girl, but the alleged victim and her parents did not testify. The artist was escorted to a black van by his lawyer Steve Greenberg, and did not answer any of the media's questions.

A 16-year-old girl who attended Kelly's child pornography trial in 2008 got his autograph after a court session.

"This reign of abuse and assault by Mr Kelly is about to come to an abrupt and permanent end", Avenatti said.

The 52-year-old, who did not speak to reporters, was released from custody after spending three nights behind bars during which time his associates and family members worked to gather the $100,000 necessary to bail him out.

One of them, Lizette Martinez, said at the news conference that she met Kelly at a shopping mall when she was 17 years old and that he abused her from 1995 until 1999.

R. Kelly surrenders to authorities at Chicago First District police station, on February 22, 2019.

"I believe all the women are lying".
