R. Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to reports. The embattled R&B star was charged in Cook County, Illinois, on Friday morning, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. His first court date is March 8, according to records. It comes after attorney Michael Avenatti announced earlier this week that he gave a videotape to the state attorney's office that he claims shows Kelly engaging in sexual acts with a minor.
