Unlike many celebrities who score a quick "get out of jail" after an arrest -R. Kelly is still enjoying the accommodations of a Cook County jail after surrendering to police on Friday night. Charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse, the indictment alleges that the 52-year-old abused four young women – at least three of them minors – from 1998 to 2010. Not surprisingly, his lawyer Steve Greenberg, claims that the girls are lying.
But according to Michael Avenatti? The tapes he turned over to authorities show Kelly allegedly assaulting a 14-year-old girl as she calls him “Daddy” somewhere around 1999. Both Kelly and the girl state her age out loud during various sex acts. He also is seen relieving himself on the girl.
Avenatti – who best known for representing Stormy Daniels– is representing two of the alleged victims, two parents, and a pair of whistleblowers who can be described as knowing the singer and being a part of his inner circle.
Kelly's bond was set at a million dollars, but he can’t afford to pay the ten percent – $100-thousand – required for him to walk free. Greenberg blames mismanagement and bad contracts. “This is someone who should be wealthy,” he said. “I don’t think he even owns the rights to ‘I Believe I Can Fly.’” Either way, he's due in court today - and Greenberg says he expects he'll be released at that time.
