R. Kelly has been denied bail.
The ‘Ignition’ hitmaker has been in jail since he was arrested on alleged sexual abuse charges and denied bond last month, and after he appeared in court again on Friday (02.08.19) for back-to-back hearings in federal court in Brooklyn, he has been denied bail yet again.
According to CBS New York, Kelly pleaded not guilty to the charges against him - which accuse him of sexually abusing women and girls - but was ordered by a judge to be held without bail.
The rapper is charged in New York with exploiting five victims, identified only as "Jane Does," three of whom alleged they were minors at the time.
The case is separate to another ongoing trial in Chicago, where he was arrested last month on charges accusing him of engaging in child pornography and further sexual abuse.
