Kelly was released from jail on a $100,000 bond after pleading not guilty to 10 sexual abuse charges against three minors.

Bond was set on Saturday at Sh100 million, and Kelly remained locked up over the weekend.

Kelly is still in a Chicago jail after he was taken into custody on Saturday hours after he was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse in Illinois' Cook County against four women.

The charges against the 52-year-old Kelly concern alleged assaults on four women, three of whom were between 13 and 17 at the time.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, several women sat on the hood of a auto that was parked next to Kelly's van, where they took pictures and danced after he exited the restaurant.

The McDonald's, a popular tourist attraction, was known as Chicago's Rock "n" Roll McDonald's before being remodeled and losing its music theme.

The second video is about 55 minutes long and from 1999 or 2000, Avenatti has said. The new charges emerge in a different environment, after the #MeToo movement made victims more willing to come forward and law enforcement more likely to believe them.

The lawyer also claimed that his legal team has "substantial evidence that R. Kelly and his enablers purposely hid this tape from prosecutors in connection with his 2008 trial and obstructed justice by paying witnesses to assist them in an effort to destroy all copies of the tape prior to the trial".

The singer was acquitted of the pornography charges. She said the only person lying is Kelly and that he has done so "for more than 20 years".

At the time of his arrest last week, Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg said the star was "extraordinarily disappointed and depressed" and maintained his innocence.

Avenatti said he is aware of a third tape, but he did not provide further details. According to court documents, he was also ordered to make a monthly payment of $20,833 on January 8, 2009, but he failed to show up to that hearing.

Prosecutors say Kelly's youngest victim was 14 when the singer began sexually abusing her. Kelly has written numerous hits for himself and other artists, including Céline Dion, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga.

In the documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which was aired in early January, several women accused him of having sex with underage girls.

Prosecutors said the victims include a teenager Mr Kelly met when she sought his autograph during his previous trial on child pornography charges, another he met at her 16th birthday party, and his hairdresser, who was then 24.
