Cook County, IL – The Cook County State Attorney reportedly charged R. Kelly with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse on Friday (February 22).

According to TMZ, a grand jury convened last week to discuss an alleged sex tape unearthed by attorney Michael Avenatti. As many as a dozen women came forward to testify and two provided physical evidence.

Prosecutors will reportedly stand before a judge on Friday afternoon to request an arrest warrant for the disgraced R&B star.

Avenatti says he uncovered the VHS tape during a months-long investigation. CNN had a chance to view the tape and described two different scenes. One took place in a living room, while the other was in a bedroom.

A naked man presumed to be Kelly performs multiple sex acts with the girl who calls him “daddy” multiple times. They also refer to her “14-year-old” genitalia.

Although it’s unclear when the video was shot, Avenatti is confident it still falls within the statute of limitations.

Avenatti says there is also a third video that appears to show Kelly committing sexual acts with a minor.

Kelly has been under heavy scrutiny since Lifetime aired its Surviving R. Kelly documentary.
