R. Kelly Now Has 11 More Felony Charges To Worry About

Just when it was starting to feel like things will eventually workout for R. Kelly, he has being hit with 11 new felony charges in addition to the original 10 that he was facing initially back in February.

Cook County prosecutors slapped the singer with an additional 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 who was at least age 13 and under 17 at the time.

The reports that we have gathered shows that the alleged offense occurred in January 2010. Kelly’s lawyer claims that the new charges are in relation to an alleged victim who was a basis of one of the four sex abuse cases filed against Kelly earlier this year.

Attorney Steve Greenberg took to Twitter to clarify the news, writing, “#RKelly was NOT charged with a new case. He was recharged in an existing case, same alleged victim and time (a decade ago) It changes nothing,” and “#RKelly These are the same conduct, just charged differently, same alleged victim, same time frame, same facts. We expect the same results.”

Kelly is currently free after someone posted both his $100,000 USD bail from February and his $161,000 child support bill in March. He is due to appear in court June 6.
