- Photos and a viral video of US singer, R Kelly in court have left social media astonish – people can’t believe how rugged and old the singer looked.
R Kelly is currently being held at the Federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago, US, on federal sex-crime charges.
His next court date has been set for April 27, 2020. According to TshisaLive, among the charges the singer faces, are one for engaging in prostitution with a minor and another for soliciting a minor for sexual purposes.
The 52-year-old hit-maker, faces four sets of state and federal sex-crimes charges but has denied the allegations.
R Kelly appeared in court this week when a woman, who posted N33.7m bail for him in February, appealed for the money to be returned to her.
The judge however, denied the request. Here’s a video courtesy of FOX 10 Phoenix of what happened at this week’s court hearing.
