R.Kelly Mugshot Released, Attorney Says “I Think ALL The Women Are Lying!” [VIDEO]
The official mugshot for R.Kelly has been released. The 52-year-old singer turned himself in to Chicago police late Friday after being charged earlier in the day with 10 counts of felony criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims, according to the Cook County Prosecutor’s Office.
See the footage below.
According to reports, prosecutors state that three of the four victims were younger than 17 at the time of the alleged incidents.
After Kelly turned himself in, his attorney Steve Greenberg dismissed the new charges and called the accusers liars.
“I think all the women are lying, yes. This has become, ‘Hey, R Kelly — I can say R Kelly did something’ — boom. There was a press conference yesterday, ‘Oh, these two girls were assaulted by R Kelly!’ And the lawyer stood there with a picture of LL Cool J!”
The singer’s attorney also went on to claim that Cook County, Illinois, State Attorney Kim Foxx indicted the singer in response to public pressure.
“I had a discussion with the state’s attorney’s office earlier this week [and] we were supposed to meet next week and have a discussion about what they had. I was gonna be allowed to address what they had, then they just decided to indict him today for whatever reason. I suspect this is succumbing to public pressure.”
Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is also facing investigations from at least three different federal law enforcement agencies including at least one examining his alleged relationships with underage girls and whether they were trafficked, according to reports.
