  • Avenatti to Turn Over Second Tape of R. Kelly and Underage Girl

But he said Kelly could be released as early as Monday or Tuesday.

The singer was indicted last Friday in Cook County, Ill.

The "Surviving R. Kelly" docu-series revealed years of allegations of sexual misconduct against the singer as scores of people criticized the musician and hoped that the alleged victims would get justice. On Saturday afternoon, Greenberg told reporters that his client's finances are "a mess", and that "he really doesn't have any money".

Kelly's lawyer Greenberg said the charges were based on old and false accusations, saying "all of the women are lying". Kelly clasped his hands behind his back and was not handcuffed during the five-minute hearing, reports CBS News' Jericka Duncan and Cassandra Gauthier.

The aforementioned tape is not the same video related to Kelly's 2008 child pornography case, of which he was acquitted, Avenatti said in a lengthy statement shared on Twitter.

"Within the further information provided, it's reported that Kelly explicitly refers to the female's "14-year-old p****" in the footage", while the alleged victim refers to herself as 14-years-old repeatedly throughout the tape. Don Russell says he's been by Kelly's side for more than 30 years. Now, it appears that attorney Michael Avenatti has additional evidence against the singer that he plans on turning over to prosecutors.

Photos posted to Instagram show Kelly - wearing a coat, hood and sunglasses - eating French fries with his posse at the fast-food joint in downtown Chicago after being released. The charges were announced on Friday and Kelly turned himself in to police hours later.

But Kelly's defense maintains that the child support payment will not delay his release from jail upon payment of his bond.

The Cook County clerk's office was receiving calls about helping out with Kelly's bond, according officials in bond court over the weekend.

Kelly, best known for his hit single "I Believe I Can Fly", had been confined to a prison hospital ward to keep him apart from the general inmate population, his lawyer said.

At the bond hearing, Greenberg said his client is not a flight risk.

In early 2003, a Chicago hairdresser told prosecutors that she thought she was going to braid Kelly's hair, but he pulled down his trousers and instead tried to force her to give him oral sex.

"He's a rock star".

Kelly has long denied wrongdoing.

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.

That alleged incident resulted in two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse - one for "contact between Robert Kelly's penis and R.L's sex organ" one for contact with her 'mouth'. Probation is also an option.
