The hits keep on coming for R Kelly.

Hennepin County District Attorney Mike Freeman announced on Monday that the singer was being charged with two counts of sexual misconduct involving a minor under the age of 18 for a 2001 incident in Minnesota.


Freeman said that after investigating a tip that came from Chicago, his office discovered that Kelly allegedly paid a teenager who asked for his autograph $200 to get naked and then asked to perform acts of rape on her in his Minneapolis hotel.

‘The defendant and Victim engaged in small talk before the defendant gave her $200 to dance. According to Victim, after reaching an agreement on an amount, he helped her remove her clothing,’ states the complaint obtained by DailyMail.com.

‘Victim stated that the defendant took off his clothes as well. Victim reported that the defendant laid on the bed and she climbed on top of him, body to body. Victim stated that she was positioned looking down towards the defendant’s feet as she danced.’

The complaint continues: ‘According to the Victim, the defendant was rubbing her body as well as fondling his erect penis. Victim stated that the defendant touched all over her body including her vagina and her breasts.’

Kelly’s lawyer responded to this new charge by stating: ‘Give me a break. This is absurd.’

His client meanwhile is still behind bars at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

Freeman admitted on Monday that the case would be a difficult one to prosecute since the evidence was 20 years old.

The teenager allegedly asked Kelly for an autograph prior to the alleged incident, at which point he also provided her with a number.

Once she called that number, she was asked to visit Kelly in his hotel room.

‘Victim stated that she obtained an autograph from the defendant which also contained a phone number,’ states the complaint.

‘Victim indicated that she called the number and was directed to a downtown Minneapolis hotel where she met the defendant.’

When she arrived, the singer offered her the money after a brief exchange.

Statutory rape laws in Minnesota clearly state that no authority figure may engage in sexual activity with anyone under the age of 18, a description that would apply to Kelly.

He was more than four years older than the victim, and based on her claim that she asked the singer his autograph was clearly in a position of authority.
