R. Kelly is facing mulitple sex abuse charges following years of allegations that he exploited and abused women, and may have engaged in sex acts with a minor.
It is not clear at this time what specific allegations are connected to the slew of charges.
The accusations against Kelly were the focus of a Lifetime documentary, “Surviving R. Kelly,” that aired in January. Earlier this month, high-profile attorney Michael Avenetti claimed to be in possession of a sex tape that allegedly showed Kelly engaging in sex acts with a 14-year-old girl.
According to the report, prosecutors were working to obtain an arrest warrant for Kelly as of Friday afternoon.
