After a historic video emerged, which lawyer Michael Avenatti claimed clearly showed R Kelly engaged in sexual activities with a 14-year-old girl, the R&B star was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and was held in custody.
A judge posted R Kelly's bail at $1million and now Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx has claimed that more evidence in the case has been revealed, including the 'Ignition' singer's DNA.
According to Global News' report, 'Kelly’s DNA was found in semen on one of the accuser’s shirts, and semen found on one worn by another was submitted for DNA testing, Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx said.'
The publication also claimed that Ms Foxx said, 'Kelly met one of the accusers when she was celebrating her 16th birthday party at a restaurant and another when he signed an autograph during his 2008 trial on child-pornography charges.'
The case gained heightened public intrest following the 'Surviving R Kelly' documentary which aired interviews with alleged victims as well as some family members of those who R Kelly is claimed to have brainwashed and abused over the years.
News has also emerged that R Kelly was unable to pay his $1million bail and that his legal team have claimed he'd only be able to raise around $100,000 of the overall sum.
Despite not paying the full bail bond, R Kelly was released from custody on bail and his passport was taken from him, meaning shows he'd planned to perform in Germany and a host of other European countries soon have had to be postponed.
