On Thursday, Illinois prosecutors charged R. Kelly with 11 additional sex assault charges stemming from a January 2010 incident that reportedly involved a victim referenced in one of the criminal cases filed against him in February.
From the Chicago Sun-Times, Cook County prosecutors charged Kelly, 52, with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault by force, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Authorities alleged the victim in this case was between the ages 13 and 16.
Kelly already faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four women—three whom were were underage at the time. While out on $1 million bail, Kelly was re-arrested in early March for nonpayment of $160,000 in child support to his ex-wife. He was released days later after an unidentified person reportedly paid the entirety of his back child support.
Kelly is due to appear in court for the latest round of charges on June 6.
