Kelly, 52, has long faced allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct. In February, he was arrested in Chicago and indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four victims, including three underage girls. He was charged with 11 additional counts in May, including aggravated criminal sexual assault.

The charges involved incidents spanned from 1998 to 2010 and included alleged victims who were ages 13 to 16 at the time.

He has pleaded not guilty, and his attorney, Steve Greenberg told The Associated Press at the time of the initial charges that Kelly was “shellshocked” by the indictments.

Kelly was first tried in 2008 on charges stemming from claims he had sex with a teenage girl and filmed the encounter. But he was acquitted on all counts after the alleged victim refused to testify against him.

In March, “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King conducted a remarkable interview with Kelly in which she pressed him on the charges. The singer vehemently denied the accusations, pleading with King that he was “fighting” for his life. At one point he burst into tears, jumped out of his seat and screamed that he “didn’t do this stuff.”

“Hate me if you want to, love me if you want,” Kelly said during the interview. “But just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through — oh, right now I just think I need to be a monster, hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don’t let them eat, don’t let them out!”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Frees “crazed fan”

Published

on

The former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided not to press charges against the man who drop-kicked him in the back at an event in South Africa.

He made his intention known via a post on Twitter, after the footage of the two-footed lunge on the Hollywood legend at a sporting event in Johannesburg trended so well over the weekend.

 The 71-year-old declared he was “moving on” after the viral video incident.
The star also said he hoped the unidentified male attacker – handed over to police after being wrestled to the ground security guards – uses the incident as a “wake-up call”.

“A lot of you have asked, but I’m not pressing charges. I hope this was a wake-up call, and he gets his life on the right track.”

Describing the man as “crazed fan”, event organisers said security had “responded swiftly by apprehending the offender and handing him over to police.”

Wayne Price, organiser of the Arnold Classic Africa event, said he believed the incident “was carefully planned by the offender, as he is known to the police for orchestrating similar incidents in the past”.
