Federal prosecutors are looking to make sure sex abuse charges stick to R&B star R. Kelly as reports indicate they have loaded even more on the embattled singer.
“According to legal docs, Kelly’s been hit with 3 new charges including coercion and enticement, coercion of a minor and transportation of a minor. The new charges stem from two women — Jane Doe #5 and #6 — 5 claims she and Kelly had sex when she was underage in 2015.
Jane Doe #5 claims R. Kelly never told her he had herpes during their relationship … and #6 says she developed the disease during her relationship with Kelly.
In addition, Kelly’s also been hit with four new racketeering acts including allegations he used, “force, threats of force, physical restraint and threats of physical restraint.”
Kelly remains behind bars while he awaits trial but has maintained his innocence despite the mountain of claims made against him.”
The charges above come just a week after the Grammy winner appeared in a Chicago court to plead not guilty to 13 sexual abuse charges in Chicago, including allegations from a previously unknown accuser. Click here to read more about that.
