Kelly leaves court at the Leighton Criminal Courts building after a status hearing on his sexual assault charges in Chicago, Illinois, USA, 07 May 2019. Kelly, through his attorney, is reportedly challenging evidence provided in two video tapes that allegedly show him having sex with a 14 year old girl. R. Kelly in court, Chicago, USA - 07 May 2019 - R&B legend R. Kelly has been indicted in Brooklyn on racketeering and other charges involving alleged sex crimes, according to newly unsealed court documents.

Kelly, 52, is accused in the indictment of sexually exploiting at least five girls and women, identified only as Jane Does, between January 1999 and the present in Illinois, California, New York, Connecticut, and other places.

The women and girls were ordered to call him “Daddy,” according to the indictment, and were not allowed to leave their rooms or eat without permission.

They were also “required to wear baggy clothing” when not with Kelly, and “were not permitted to look at other men and instead told to keep their heads down,” the document says.

In addition, the papers accuse Kelly of producing child pornography, engaging in sexual activity with girls younger than 18 and failing to disclose an unspecified sexually transmitted disease.

Prosecutors claim Kelly and his unnamed cohorts targeted girls at concerts, seemingly using his music to entrap unwitting fans.
