R. Kelly Leaves Jail After Posting $100K in Sex Abuse Case

Avenatti to Turn Over Second Tape of R. Kelly and Underage Girl

According to reports, a 47-year-old woman was the one to post the bond in Kelly's case, describing herself as a "friend" of his in court documents obtained by multiple outlets.

R. Kelly pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that he sexually abused four females dating back to 1998, including three underage girls. The singer, who surrendered to the authorities on February 22 after the charges against him were announced and who spent the weekend in prison, has at all times denied having committed any crime.

R. Kelly is being charged for soliciting an underage girl for sexual abuse, as well as a year-long sexual relationship with a girl that he met when she was 16-years-old.

Last month, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx asked for possible alleged victims of sexual assault or domestic violence by Kelly to come forward after what she called the "deeply, deeply disturbing" allegations outlined in the docu-series "Surviving R. Kelly".

According to Associated Press, Kelly stopped to sign an autograph on his trip to McDonald's after being released.

Kelly has faced several accusations of abuse, manipulation and inappropriate encounters with young girls and women for more than two decades, but he has never been convicted.

"Too bad the owner posted bail for disgusting, R. Kelly".

On Monday morning, Kelly, wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, appeared in a Chicago courtroom before Associate Judge Lawrence Flood and spoke only to confirm his name.

On Tuesday, the lawyer shared a tweet detailing the alleged contents of the tape, including the claim that Kelly repeatedly referenced the 14-year-old victim's age and used graphic language. Avenatti previously gave prosecutors video evidence that he said showed Kelly having sex with an underage girl. "It's our position at this point that Mr. Kelly has done absolutely nothing wrong", said his attorney Steve Greenberg.

Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari confirmed on Monday night R Kelly had raised the $100,000 bail, which was 10% of the $1m bond set by a judge over the weekend.

After the latest news emerged, lawyer Michael Avenatti announced on Twitter Monday that he would be providing a second video allegedly "showing Kelly engaged in sexual assault with a minor".

But she said none of her clients is included in the Cook County case.

The family still hope to "get through" to Joycelyn and persuade her to abandon the singer, but they claim to have received threats from allies of R Kelly.

"No one wants to be jail", Greenberg said.
