R. Kelly, 55 is facing another trial on Monday, this time in his hometown of Chicago. The disgraced singer, who’s already been convicted of sex crimes in New York, faces similar charges in Illinois.
Robert Kelly is charged with 13 counts that include creating and receiving child pornography, enticing minors into illegal sexual activity and obstruction of justice.
The “Your Body Is Calling Me,” singer faces charges with his former manager, Derrel McDavid, and former employee, Milton Brown. They all have pleaded not guilty.
