Musician R Kelly pleads not guilty in court

R. Kelly

Kelly is charged with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse for the alleged offenses involving that victim. Prosecutors also alleged that Kelly spit on two of his alleged victims.

The clip is thought to show Kelly performing sexual acts on the same 14-year-old girl, who is in the first clip, Billboard reported.

'The victim also refers to herself as being 14 years of age repeatedly'.

The second video is about 55 minutes long and from 1999 or 2000, Avenatti has said.

Avenatti did not immediately give details about the second tape.

Metro.co.uk has contacted R Kelly's lawyer for comment. "It leaves no question as to Mr. Kelly's guilt on the tape".

He was claimed to have impregnated the girl and then forced her to have an abortion.

Because of this, he will continue to go back and forth between Cook County Jail and the courthouse, with his next court hearing set for March 22.

Social media users say that the McDonald's Kelly chose to eat at is a popular spot for teens and underage kids to hang out in.

The women's parents have previously claimed they are being held against their will.

Inside Edition spoke to Asante McGee, a woman who has accused Kelly of abuse and who was featured in the Lifetime docu-series "Surviving R, Kelly". Kelly used force or the threat of force, according to the charges.

Hours earlier, Kelly stood in a Chicago courtroom wearing an orange jumpsuit as his lawyer entered a non-guilty plea, three days after the musician turned himself in.

The six-part docuseries ended on a devastating note, with the parents of one of the young women who had run away with Kelly seen throwing rocks at his studio windows trying to get the attention of their daughter.

Kelly's DNA was found in semen on one of the accuser's shirts, and semen found on a shirt worn by another was submitted for DNA testing, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx said. It was not clear when the accusers turned the shirts over to authorities.

Avenatti says that in addition to the three alleged Kelly victims - two of whom he says are included in the indictment handed down against the recording artist last week - he represents two whistleblowers and two parents "in the R. Kelly matter".

Aggravated criminal sexual abuse is a Class 2 felony with a sentencing range of 3-7 years in prison.
