Kelly’s Finances "Are A Mess" Says His Lawyer Steven Greenberg

R. Kelly

R. Kelly

On Monday night, after Kelly was released from jail, the singer and his friends went to the flagship McDonald's in River North before they spent four hours at Biggs Mansion, a Gold Coast cigar lounge.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti claimed Tuesday that R. Kelly has already violated the conditions of his release - and he also offered disturbing new details regarding a second sex-assault tape that he turned over to prosecutors in which the disgraced R&B star is allegedly heard saying, "Give me that 14-year-old p-y".

Kelly faced the child pornography charges more than a decade ago, at a trial where the victim did not testify.

Prosecutors say the victims include a teenager whom Kelly met when she sought an autograph during his previous trial on child pornography charges, another whom he met at her 16th birthday party and his hairdresser, who was then 24.

'The victim also refers to herself as being 14 years of age repeatedly'.

He said his team was in the process of obtaining a third tape of a similar nature, and that additional witnesses had come forward over the weekend. Kelly was held on a $1,000,000 bond, of which he was required to pay 10 percent.

R. Kelly is one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

Kelly, best known for his hit single "I Believe I Can Fly", had been confined to a prison hospital ward to keep him apart from the general inmate population, his lawyer said.

Avenatti said that he expects Kelly's insiders to turn on him if prosecutors for after them.




R Kelly turned himself in to a Chicago police station on February 22.

Avenatti, 48, says he is now representing seven clients - three alleged victims, two parents and two "whistleblowers" - in the investigation against Kelly, 52.

R. Kelly has posted $100,000 bail and is expected to be released from jail shortly, according to the Associated Press. Valencia Love had nothing but glowing remarks for the disgraced singer facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Kelly had been behind bars since his arrest on Friday.

Nearly immediately after Kelly posted his $100,000 bail late Monday and headed to an iconic McDonald's in downtown Chicago, social media lit up with reminders of allegations in the documentary "Surviving R. Kelly" that the R&B star would search for teen girls at McDonald's restaurants.

The 52-year-old Kelly faces 10 sexual abuse counts involving four victims, three of whom were minors.

Kelly has long denied wrongdoing.

Greenberg reiterated at a news conference that Kelly has done nothing wrong and said no one has shown him any evidence to the contrary.
