Final month Kelly was hit with new federal fees in Chicago, alleging that he sexually abused a minor feminine for 4 years, starting in 1997. The 52-year-old can be accused of filming his exploits with the woman, and failing to reveal the actual fact he had herpes throughout their relationship.

The feds said Kelly abused the woman, ID'd in court papers as "Jane Doe No. 3" in IL as well as other states, "coercing and enticing" her to cross state lines for sex abuse even though he knew she could not give "informed consent", according to the federal indictment, which was obtained by BOSSIP.

Rodgers is identified in Kelly's Brooklyn federal court indictment as Jane Doe No. 6 but has gone public with her allegations and has filed a lawsuit against the disgraced R&B icon in Manhattan Supreme Court.

The Eastern District of NY on Friday filed a superseding indictment against R. Kelly, who already faces multiple charges in three states, that includes additional charges stemming from two accusers who have been newly added to the suit, according to Rolling Stone.

Kelly, who's behind bars in Chicago, Illinois awaiting trial on different intercourse abuse expenses, has all the time maintained his innocence, and after the up to date NY indictment was launched, his lawyer, Doug Anton, known as into query the legitimacy of the most recent accusations made in opposition to his consumer.

The new charges further a string of dozens of other counts of state and federal sexual misconduct charges in Illinois, Minnesota and NY, from sexual assault to heading a racketeering scheme aimed at supplying Kelly with girls.

Kelly first landed in jail in July and has been awaiting trial at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago that's one block away from his pretrial hearings. In total, the NY federal charges now include six alleged victims, including three girls.

Kelly attorney Steve Greenberg didn't immediately return a Law&Crime request for comment. Kelly may very well be arraigned on the brand new fees at his subsequent scheduled listening to for this particular case, which takes place on March 5.

The legal hits just keep coming for embattled singer R. Kelly.
