In arguing for bail within the singer's ability to pay, Greenberg told a judge over the weekend that Kelly is not wealthy despite decades of success creating hit songs. (TMZ)R. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

He also revealed he came to the decision by setting the bond at $250,000 for each of the four people who he has been charged with sexually abusing.

Martinez said Monday that she had an "abusive relationship" with Kelly that started in 1995 when she was 17 and lasted until 1999.

"This reign of abuse and assault by Mr Kelly is about to come to an abrupt and permanent end", Avenatti said.

"He has to rely on others acting on his behalf", Greenberg said.

"We haven't seen anything, any reason to believe that these allegations are credible", Kelly's attorney Steve Greenberg told reporters Saturday.

Kelly, whose legal name is Robert Kelly, was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

By Monday afternoon, though, one of the women featured in the Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R. Kelly" pushed back. The fourth victim was 24 years old at the time of incident, but the document describes Kelly masturbating on her, and Chicago authorities have the shirt she was wearing at the time.

Allred also said Kelly's accusers have been subjected to abuse by the singer's fans.

Kelly's surprising money problems go well beyond his inability to post bail.

Attorney Michael Avenatti says he has another tape to give to prosecutors, but Greenberg isn't anxious.

The new 10-count indictment included three minors between 13 and 16 years of age.

The attorney said he has learned of a third tape but did not provide details about it. But the attorney said publicly Friday that his client is innocent.

"Kelly owed more than $169,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife as of February 6.The court ordered Kelly to make a monthly payment of $20,833 on January 8, 2009, but Kelly failed to show up to that hearing, per court documents".

The charges carry three to seven years of prison time each.

R. Kelly has arrived in a Chicago court for another hearing in the sexual abuse case against him.

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who is thought to be working with several individuals making accusations about Kelly, has claimed to have an unreleased video of the singer engaging in sexual acts with an underage girl.

By Monday evening, the campaigns in support of Kelly appeared to have been removed. After being freed from Cook Country Jail, Kelly stopped at McDonald's in Chicago's River North neighbourhood, the same branch of the fast food chain where he is alleged to have met with underage girls. He would not say whether that video depicted the same girl as in the first sex-assault video he handed over to prosecutors, but TMZ, citing sources, reported that it did. At the trial, more than a dozen witnesses identified the person in the video as an underage girl, but the alleged victim and her parents did not testify. Kelly is expected to attend.

The 52-year-old appeared in court on Monday dressed in an orange jumpsuit after spending the weekend in jail. A judge set bond at $1 million, meaning Kelly had to post 10 percent of that amount to be released.

The eviction process began in July 2018 when the landlord, Midwest Commercial Funding LLC, said Kelly defaulted on the lease by initially failing to pay more than $79,000 in rent.
