Multiple reports say R. Kelly has been charged with ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse on underage girls.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the R&B singer was charged in Cook County, Illinois, and prosecutors coveted an arrest warrant for Kelly on Friday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Kelly, 52, has repeatedly denied all accusations against him.
This follows a claim by high-profile attorney Michael Avenatti last week that he had a new, nearly 45-minute video of Kelly engaging in sexual acts with a 14-year-old girl. The videotape was handed over to the State Attorney’s Office in Chicago, where Kelly lives and has a music studio.
“It’s over,” Avenatti tweeted Friday. “After 25 years of serial sexual abuse and assault of underage girls, the day of reckoning for R Kelly has arrived.”
