R. Kelly leaves jail and returns to McDonald’s where he allegedly used to pick up underage girls
After spending the weekend in jail, R. Kelly posted bond Monday night, and the first spot he hit up upon his release was McDonalds.
Page Six reports that the embattled R&B singer was greeted by several fans at the River North location, including women and children, who took selfies and blared his music.
Photos of Kelly ordering food and eating were shared on Twitter by local reporters while his loyal supporters watched and waited outside.
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, several female fans sat on the hood of a car that was parked next to Kelly’s van. Once he exited the eatery, the women snapped photos and danced for the singer.
This particular location is a notorious teen hangout where R. Kelly is alleged to have picked up young girls.
Nine of the ten counts against Kelly, 52, involve alleged victims who at least age 13 but no older than 17 years old the 36-pages indictment says. In the indictment there are four alleged victims. One is linked to three different counts. The incidents occurred in separate occasions between 1998 and 2010. In the State of Illinois, the statute of limitations on sexual abuse against minors can extend as long as 20 years.
News of R. Kelly’s release came hours after attorney Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for two of the alleged victims, announced the existence of even more sex tapes featuring the music icon and underage girls.
“I can confirm that we will be providing a second video showing R. Kelly engaged in sexual assault of a minor to prosecutors this morning. This tape was recently uncovered in connection with our ongoing nationwide investigation on behalf of victims. Justice must be done,” Avenatti wrote on Twitter.
This tape however is said to have been filmed around 2000, TMZ reports.
The new tape reportedly shows Kelly coaching the girl through sexual acts and allegedly shows the singer having anal sex with the minor and at one point even choking her.
At Kelly’s bond hearing Saturday, bail was set at $1 million, on charges of alleged aggravated criminal sexual abuse of four young women, three of whom were underage. He was also made to surrender his passport and told not to have contact with any of his victims or anyone under the age of 18.
