Avenatti to Turn Over Second Tape of R

R. Kelly’s mugshot

Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Cook County in a case involving four victims. The singer has been in jail since he turned himself in to authorities late Friday.

R Kelly is set to be released from a Chicago jail after posting his $100,000 (£76,000) bail, a Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman has said. Kelly, who was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008, has denied wrongdoing and his attorney says he's confident the singer will be vindicated. His attorney, Steve Greenberg, said Cook County State's Attorney, Kim Foxx, succumbed to public pressure and that his client is an innocent man.

That alleged incident resulted in two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse - one for "contact between Robert Kelly's penis and R.L's sex organ" one for contact with her 'mouth'.

Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for one of the accusers, said that Kelly "deserves to be locked up for the rest of his life".

Kelly's surprising money problems go well beyond his inability to post bail.

Attorney Gloria Allred is pushing back against R. Kelly's lawyer's assertion that the women who have accused the R&B singer of sexually abusing them are lying.

The 55-minute video allegedly features the same 14-year-old who appeared in the first one, and is believed to have R Kelly "coaching" her through various sexual situations.

It will then spend the next two months stretching its elongated orbit to make it all the way to the moon and achieve lunar orbit. But some of the teams persisted, determined to land on the moon even without the incentive of $30 million in prize money.

Attorney Michael Avenatti on Monday said his legal team has turned over to prosecutors a second video that he alleges shows R&B Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

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.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Kelly also owes a Georgia property management company more than $31,000 in past due rent payments for two homes in suburban Atlanta.

Singer R. Kelly is still in jail after a judge ruled he must pay 10% of his $1 million bond, The Daily Mail reports. "We're not going to try this case in the media", Mr Greenberg said, adding that he expects his client to post bail by Monday evening (US time).

The walls began closing in on Kelly after the release of a BBC documentary about him past year and the multipart Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which aired last month.

"He has to rely on others acting on his behalf", Greenberg said. He told the judge, "Contrary to the song, Mr. Kelly doesn't like to fly".
