A suburban woman reportedly posted R. Kelly’s $100,000 bail

Thursday, 28 Feb, 2019

R. Kelly and his attorney, Steve Greenberg, leave Cook County jail after Kelly posted $100,000 bond on February 25, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois.

Michael Avenatti, a lawyer representing two accusers, told reporters after Monday's hearing that he had turned over a second videotape to prosecutors earlier in the day. Avenatti told CBS News this month he got the first tape from someone who knows both Kelly and the alleged victim "extremely well".

Kelly met one of the victims at her 16th birthday dinner, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx said.

On Monday, Avenatti said that he had the second tape and that he was handing it over to prosecutors.

TMZ said that Kelly's bond, which was 10 per cent of his one million dollars bail, was finally posted Monday, Feb. 25, after he appeared in court and entered a not guilty to plea to all 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. He was ordered held Saturday on $1 million bail but was unable to post 10 percent - $100,000 - over the weekend.

Prison time might be sooner than later for Kelly.

The lawyer also claimed that his legal team has "substantial evidence that R. Kelly and his enablers purposely hid this tape from prosecutors in connection with his 2008 trial and obstructed justice by paying witnesses to assist them in an effort to destroy all copies of the tape prior to the trial".

Kelly's attorney, Steven Greenberg did not immediately reply to PEOPLE's request for comment.

R. Kelly has been released from jail after posting bail.

Avenatti, 48, says he is now representing seven clients - three alleged victims, two parents and two "whistleblowers" - in the investigation against Kelly, 52.

R. Kelly is due in court on March 8 for back child support and again on March 22 for his sexual abuse charges.

Last week, after years of allegations of sexual misconduct and physical and emotional abuse, the R&B singer was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. Questions about Kelly's dwindling finances surfaces after he couldn't manage to post bail following his arrest Friday night. The charges were announced on Friday and Kelly turned himself in to police hours later.

Kelly has denied the charges.

"At the age of 17, I was walking in the mall with friends like so many teenagers often do when I was approached by a predator, and that predator is Robert Sylvester Kelly", she said in front of a crowd of reporters. Greenberg told the judge that Kelly isn't wealthy despite decades of success creating hit songs.
