R. Kelly was hit with a new allegation of sexual abuse on Friday as a superseding indictment in Chicago alleged Kelly sexually abused one minor for four years beginning in 1997. Kelly was already facing charges in four jurisdictions for his alleged decades of sexual abuse and was charged in Chicago last year. This indictment appears to remove a person from the list of Kelly's victims as it adds a new one, and also seeks the forfeiture of assets from Kelly's production company and the company of his business manager and co-defendant. The disgraced R&B star's attorney tweeted Friday that "we continue to fight for him and look forward to the day he is free." Kelly's original trial scheduled for April will now likely be delayed.
