R. Kelly’s legal woes continue as he is charged with paying 2 teen girls for sex in Minnesota

R. Kelly has been charged with two sex crimes in Minnesota.

The ‘Ignition’ hitmaker is already facing multiple charges related to sexual abuse in both New York and Chicago – all of which he has pled not guilty to – and he has now been hit with a further two charges, relating to an alleged interaction he had with a teenage girl.

According to TMZ, prosecutors have alleged Kelly once paid a teenage girl – who was between the age of 16 and 17 – to have sexual contact with him in his hotel room back in 2001 in the city of Minneapolis.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says the alleged victim initially approached Kelly seeking an autograph and claims Kelly paid her $200 to get naked and engage in sex acts with him.

For the alleged incident, Kelly is being charged with two sex crimes – engaging in prostitution with someone under 18, and hiring, offering, or agreeing to hire someone for sexual contact.

Freeman claims there was no sexual intercourse between Kelly and the alleged victim, but says there was “dancing and sexual contact”.

The ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ singer is currently in custody in New York after pleading not guilty to five federal criminal charges including kidnapping and racketeering.

In a separate case in Chicago, Kelly has been indicted on 13 counts, including charges of child porn, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice.

The 52-year-old singer is also fighting a further 10 charges of aggravated sexual abuse in Cook County, Illinois.

Since being placed in jail, Kelly has been moved to solitary confinement, and his lawyer, Nicole Blank Becker, recently claimed he doesn’t mind being on his own, because he feels safer as he’s aware other inmates know he’s been accused of sex crimes involving under age girls, as reported by The Sauce.

The Sauce reported, after the explosive success of the infamous ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ documentary, Lifetime is set to release a follow-up docu-series. Lifetime is ordering a follow-up piece about more of the embattled musician’s accusers, as well as planning a new documentary that looks at those who say they were victims of another powerful man, a 66-year-old American registered sex offender and financier named Jeffrey Epstein, CNN reports.
