Tears streamed down R. Kelly's cheeks as a court official read a jury's not guilty verdict to all 14 counts of child pornography at his 2008 trial in Chicago. The R&B superstar had successfully dodged up to 15 years in prison and likely financial ruin.
Prosecutors on Friday charged R&B star R. Kelly with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four female victims, at least three of whom were younger than 17. Here are some details listed in the grand jury indictments and outlined by the Cook County state's attorney:
Don McLean's former wife has launched a photo exhibition about domestic abuse that includes a copy of the protection order issued against him, and the "American Pie" singer is threatening to sue a weekly newspaper that wrote about it.
