New reports have revealed that R. Kelly has been charged with criminal sexual abuse in Chicago.

Sources say, the singer is hit with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse in Cook County on Friday. A warrant has been issued for Kelly’s arrest.

Chicago Tribune reports:

"It was not immediately clear how many alleged victims were involved, but three of the indictments referred to a minor between the ages of 13 and 16, according to the charges.

The charges come after damning allegations in a recent documentary series spurred Foxx to make an unusual public plea last month for any Kelly accusers to come forward, and a recent groundswell of social media backlash called for a boycott of Kelly’s music.

High-profile attorney Michael Avenatti said last week that he had given Foxx’s office a VHS tape showing Kelly engaging in sex years ago with an underage girl."

Two women testified for the grand jury over the past week, and one of them provided physical evidence.
