R. Kelly Charged With Two Counts Of Child Prostitution

Prosecutors in Minnesota have charged singer R. Kelly with two counts of prostitution and solicitation of a girl under the age of 18.

According to CBS, the charges relate to a 2001 incident where the R&B singer met the child at a promotional event before a performance.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said: "This kind of conduct, particularly juveniles, is simply unacceptable in the state of Minnesota and frankly everywhere.

"She was a juvenile at the time. We have special laws to protect our juveniles, and we are going to enforce them."

The girl was reportedly given front-row VIP seats to one of Kelly's performances after the incident and when her brother asked how she got the tickets she revealed what happened.

Kelly's lawyer, Steve Greenberg, tweeted: "Give me a break. This is beyond absurd."
