The "Ignition" singer, 52, was charged in Cook County, Illinois on Feb. 22. Kelly's charges come on the heels of Lifetime's explosive special Surviving R. Kelly, which exposed him as a sex cult leader.

In January, Sony and RCA Records dropped him as an artist as a result of the horrific accusations.
