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.
The controversial artist is accused of sexually assaulting and abusing young women in addition to holding them hostage in his music studio.
The R&B singer has continuously denied any wrongdoing despite the fact that multiple victims and their parents have come forward.
Kelly is reportedly expected to appear in court on March 8.
