For over two decades, rumors about singer R. Kelly have been circulating around about him having inappropriate sexual relations with underage girls. But recently, a number of women and young girls have come forward with claims and stories of sexual misconduct in a variety of forms being shown in a published Buzzfeed article as well as the highly talked about “Surviving R. Kelly” docu-series on Lifetime.

Over the years, Kelly has been sued by multiple women accusing him of having sex with them when they were underage. He has consistently denied these accusations. Most of the cases, with the exception of the trial where he was acquitted, were settled out of court.

Now, all those cases, allegations and rumors have come to a head today, as prosecutors have officially charged R. Kelly (full name Robert Sylvester Kelly) with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving several women—at least three of them minors, according to multiple reports.
