Kelly Enters Not-Guilty Plea on All Counts of Aggravated Sexual Abuse

R&B star R. Kelly's attorney has entered a not guilty plea on his client's behalf to multiple charges of criminal sexual abuse.

Dressed in an orange jail jumpsuit, Kelly appeared in a Chicago courtroom before Cook County Associate Judge Lawrence Flood and spoke only to confirm his name. The unnamed victim was reportedly hired to braid Kelly's hair, but when he arrived that day, his trousers were down and he said that he didn't want his hair braided.

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who is thought to be working with several individuals making accusations about Kelly, has claimed to have an unreleased video of the singer engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl.

Singer R. Kelly is still in jail after a judge ruled he must pay 10% of his $1 million bond, The Daily Mail reports.

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

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who said he represents two of Kelly's accusers, said his team gave prosecutors a second video Monday that he alleges shows Kelly sexually abusing a minor.

The new 10-count indictment included three minors between 13 and 16 years of age.

Avenatti said the new video appears to have been made in 1999 or 2000.

During Kelly's first encounter with the girl, he "had trouble maintaining an erection and penetrated the victim repeatedly vaginally and orally", prosecutors say.

"The conduct in the tape can be described as nothing short of outrageous and illegal", the lawyer told journalists.

However, she did not provide further details of the relationship.

"Mr. Kelly has done absolutely nothing wrong", Greenberg said.

"Everybody is entitled to a defence". Everybody is entitled to the presumption of innocence. Going to McDonald's was taking him back to home; that's where it started for him. "I'm just trying to get some footage for my Snapchat", he told reporters.

Kelly posted a $1 million bond Monday evening. Kelly reportedly "really doesn't have any money at this point" due to "mismanagement, ' 'hangers-on" and 'bad deals'.

At the Saturday proceedings, the prosecution also released four documents outlining the basis of their charges against Kelly. The allegations date back to 1998 and span more than a decade.

Kelly owes over $169,000 in child support according to court documents obtained by CNN Since Jan. 8, 2009, Kelly has been ordered to pay $20,833 monthly for his children. If he doesn't, he faces more jail time.

Disgraced singer R. Kelly walked out of jail Monday night as if he wasn't facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Kelly's manager gave her the singer's business card and suggested she call Kelly.

"We've heard their side", she said.

But her daughter later retrieved the card from her purse.

Los Angeles-based lawyer Gloria Allred said she represents six women who have come forward to accuse Kelly of sexual abuse, including some who were featured in the documentary.

Social media users say it's a popular spot for teens and underage kids to hang out - and Kelly was apparently known to visit regularly over the years.

The alleged abuse took place over 12 years, Cook County State's Attorney Kimberly Foxx said. It was not clear when the accusers turned the shirts over to authorities. At Kelly's bond hearing Saturday, prosecutors alleged Kelly tried to force oral sex on his 24-year-old hairdresser in 2003 while he was free on bond on the then-pending child pornography charges.

The charges carry three to seven years of prison time each. Probation is also an option.

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 women's parents have previously claimed they are being held against their will.
