Report: R. Kelly indicted on sexual abuse charges

By Suzannah Gonzales | Reuters
CHICAGO – Prosecutors in Chicago charged Grammy-winning singer R. Kelly on Friday with multiple counts of sexual abuse, local media reported.
Citing court records, the Chicago Sun-Times said Kelly was charged in Cook County, Illinois, with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. An attorney for the singer did not immediately return a call or email seeking comment.


Cook County State’s Attorney Kimberly Foxx was scheduled to announce charges against Kelly at a news conference later on Friday in Chicago, Foxx’s office said in a statement.
Kelly, whose real name is Robert Kelly, was the subject of a television documentary series last month titled “Surviving R. Kelly” in which multiple women made allegations of sexual misconduct against the performer.
The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer and record producer has for years denied accusations of abuse, including those made in the new documentary series.
Kelly’s record label, Sony Music-owned RCA, split with the Chicago native last month.
