Kelly Released After Posting $100K Bond - Everything We Know So Far!

Avenatti to Turn Over Second Tape of R. Kelly and Underage Girl Facing rape allegations, R. Kelly's financial woes surface as he can't even pay bail

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.

Kelly briefly appeared at a hearing earlier on Monday at a court here and pleaded not guilty before Judge LeRoy Martin, who is handling the case. Last week, after years of allegations of sexual misconduct and physical and emotional abuse, the R&B singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Each count of the new charges carries up to seven years in prison, making it possible for him to receive up to 70 years.

This tape is in addition to a recent, 45-minute tape in the hands of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which allegedly features R. Kelly and a 14-year-old girl having sex. He says he set R. Kelly's bond at $1 million as the allegations made against R. Kelly were very " disturbing".

Kelly's lawyer has said the charges are based on old and false accusations, adding that "all of the women are lying". After being freed from Cook Country Jail, Kelly stopped at McDonald's in Chicago's River North neighbourhood, the same branch of the fast food chain where he is alleged to have met with underage girls.

Joycelyn Savage, one of R. Kelly's alleged sex captives featured in the much-talked-about Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, could be holed up at Chicago's Trump Tower, TMZ is reporting.

Three of the girls were minors during the time at which the incidents occurred between the span of 2010 and 1998.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who said he represents two Kelly accusers, said his team gave prosecutors a second video on Monday that shows Kelly sexually abusing a minor.

Defense attorney Steve Greenberg reiterated at a news conference that Kelly has done nothing wrong and said no one has shown him any evidence to the contrary.

"I'm a mom and I have a daughter, and I felt like I had to be transparent", she said.

The court ordered Kelly to make a monthly payment of US$20,833 on January 8, 2009, but Kelly failed to show up to that hearing, per court documents.

The R&B star secured his release by paying 10 percent of his $1 million bail amount.

Speaking on "CBS This Morning" Monday, filmmaker Dream Hampton, who produced the docu-series, said she didn't expect Kelly to face charges. Other key phrases that incriminate Kelly were shared. "You should be ashamed of yourself", one woman said in part.
