R. Kelly charged with 10 counts of criminal sex abuse

A Cook County judge has approved an arrest warrant for embattled R&B superstar R. Kelly, who was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Cook County Friday morning, records show.

His first court date is listed as March 8, according to records.

His attorney, Steven Greenberg, said early Friday afternoon that he had not been notified that his client had been charged. Greenberg has said in the past that his client denies any wrongdoing.

Sources told the Sun-Times that Cook County prosecutors appeared before a judge Friday afternoon to sign off on the warrant for Kelly.

Michael Avenatti, a well known attorney who said he recently provided a videotape of R. Kelly having sex with a minor to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, applauded prosecutors for filing charges. It is unclear if the charges are related to the videotape the attorney provided.

“The day of reckoning has arrived” for R Kelly, Avenatti said in a tweet.
