The saga continues for #RKelly as he faces new charges from a 2001 incident involving a teenage girl he paid $200 to dance nude for him in a hotel room!
According to #PeopleMagazine ; Kelly has been charged by Minnesota law officials on two counts of prostitution and soliciting. Sources have indicated Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman confirmed on Monday that Kelly has been accused of soliciting a 17 year old girl back in 2001.
The unnamed victim states that she and Kelly initially met on July 11th 2001 when she approached him for an autograph in Minnesota outside at an event. Stating that she received his autograph along with his phone number. She then called the number where she was invited to a hotel to allegedly dance for Kelly. He then helped the victim remove her clothes as he also removed his.
The incident was bought to light earlier this year back in January as the victim called a Minnesota law enforcement hotline with details. “It is despicable that Mr. Kelly used his fame in order to prey on underage girls,” Freeman states.
”While there are more numerous charges in the Illinois and federal cases, we wanted to make sure that our victim here in Minneapolis also receives a measure of justice. We fully expect that at some future date, Mr. Kelly will have to account for his actions in Hennepin County.”
