R. Kelly is officially going to jail.
Kellz was spotted leaving his Chicago studio Friday with his entourage and security. Unknowingly where the crew was headed, news anchors followed the group as they arrived at the Chicago Police Department, where R. Kelly turned himself in.
This isn’t shocking as Kelly was facing 10 charges of sexual abuse dating back to 1998, and was recently cleared of multiple child pornogrpahy charges. Now, all of his charges are class 2 felonies, meaning he’s facing serious jail time at most 7 years per charge.
The R&B singer has been under the spotlight since Lifetime’s documentary series Surviving R. Kelly dropped in early January which caused a lot of upset with people and celebrities. A couple weeks later, he got dropped by his label, RCA Records. The “Ignition” rapper/singer is now facing 70 years of prison.
