R. Kelly not on Bail Free. R. Kelly (52) continues his innocence, also in the court in New York where he was brought before Friday.
The defence asked the Brooklyn court to release the singer on bail, but that request was denied, according to the reports.
The R&B singer is suspected of a series of sex crimes, human trafficking and the sexual abuse of minors.
He is said to have recruited young girls for his concerts.
R. Kelly was mostly looking straight ahead in orange prison attire, listening to the allegations.
Once he smiled and nodded to his friends Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary,
who sat next to two Kelly relatives in the room to provide the singer with mental support.
The two were also present in the Chicago court where a federal case is pending against Kelly.
Earlier it was announced that the lawyers of the 52-year-old said that the alleged victims visited the singer himself.
“The groupies wanted Roberts attention, and they even fought among themselves,
contacted him voluntarily, came to his shows and wanted him,” says in court documents.
