American artist R. Kelly, charged with ten cases of sexual abuse, has been released on bail. Who has paid the deposit is unknown.
The deposit amounted to 1 million dollars. To get free, R. Kelly had to pay 100,000 dollars. Previously, his lawyer Steven Greenberg said that the R & B singer had no money to cough this himself. Last month it became known that he has not yet paid 166,000 dollars in rent.
Kelly is suspected of having abused four people, including three minors, in the years 1998-2010. He has declared to be innocent.

The 52-year-old artist is known for the hit I Believe I Can Fly. Rumors about sexual misconduct, including with underage girls, have been running since the 1990s. Recently the fire flared up again with the documentary Surviving R. Kelly. In this, several women accuse him of sexual misconduct.
In a conversation with journalists Greenberg recently said that all the women accusing R. Kelly lie.
