R. Kelly’s journey to freedom has been hit with a major blow after the disgraced singer was slammed with multiple felony counts on May 30th, which reportedly stemmed from a 2010 encounter.
According to The Chicago Sun-Times, Cook County prosecutors added 11 new sex-related charges, including 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 between the ages of 13 to 16.
Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg said he’d been notified of the new charges but hadn’t seen any filings in the case.
“We’ll see what the charges are, and we’ll proceed accordingly,” Greenberg said. “I know this much: it’s old. They’re allegations from years ago.”
