After spending the weekend behind bars, R. Kelly plead not guilty to the sexual abuse charges against him on Monday, February 25 in a bright orange jumpsuit. The disgraced musician appeared in a Chicago courtroom for arraignment with defense attorney Steve Greenberg, who entered the plea on R. Kelly’s behalf.

The twisted singer was accused of sexually abusing and assaulting young women, three of whom were underage, while also holding them hostage in his music studio.
He has continued to deny these allegations despite the fact that multiple victims have come forward with their heartwrenching stories, which have been documented in the Lifetime special Surviving R. Kelly.
The sickest part? His attorney is confident the creep will be vindicated in this case.
