R. Kelly pleads not guilty on charges of recruiting girls, women to have s*x with him

R. Kelly has pleaded not guilty in a Chicago courtroom on Tuesday on charges of recruiting girls and women to have illegal s-x with him.

Kelly was ordered to be held without bail after prosecutors argued he was a risk to minors and may try to flee.

The R&B star, 52, is also accused of covering up the crimes by paying and threatening the victims and witnesses.

The musician was already awaiting trial for more than 20 other alleged s-xual crimes - all of which he denies.


He did not speak in court on Tuesday, except to say "yes sir" when US District Judge Harry Leinenweber asked if he understood the charges against him.

His attorney submitted a not guilty plea on his behalf.
