R. Kelly faces new charges alleging sexual abuse against a minor
R.Kelly faces yet another charge of sexual abuse.
R. Kelly has been hit with new federal charges alleging that he sexually abused a minor female for four years.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the alleged sexual abuse began in 1997.
The once-extremely popular singer, real name Robert Kelly, is already in prison as he awaits hearings in four jurisdictions on a number of sexual abuse and misconduct charges, a number of which involve women who were minors at the time.
The singer has entered not-guilty pleas in all cases.
Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, said on Twitter of the charges: “We are aware of the superseding indictment. We continue to fight for him and look forward to the day he is free."

In December of 2018, a docu-series entitled Surviving R. Kelly, which dealt with years of accusations of sexual abuse against the singer.
A sequel to the docu-series aired at the beginning of 2020, and is expected to make its way to Netflix at some point in the near future.
