R&B artist R. Kelly has been charged with multiple counts of criminal sexual abuse of a teenager. A Chicago judge issued a warrant for Kelly’s arrest on Friday afternoon and is facing 1o counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, NBC reports. Kelly is 52, and the four victims in question range in age from 13 to 16 years old according to prosecutors.


Earlier this year, Lifetime aired a documentary, Surviving R. Kelly, which detailed his earlier trial for similar charges. In that case, he was acquitted.

Earlier Friday, two more women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct and rape against Kelly. In both instances, the accusers were underaged at the time of the alleged crimes.
