One Twitter user brought attention Monday morning to what appeared to be more than two dozen GoFundMe accounts created to raise money for Kelly, 52. "The reign of abuse and assault by Mr. Kelly is about to come to an abrupt and permanent end". Attorney Michael Avenatti claims to have more damning video evidence to corroborate these claims.

The first video shows actions that mirror some of the alleged acts for which Kelly was arrested on child pornography charges in 2002.

Kelly, then 27, had produced the teenage singer's debut album titled "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number". According to the witness, the girl in the video is the niece of someone prosecutors refer to only as "S.E." and that person has positively identified the child in the video as being her niece.

Kelly has long denied the allegations against him. "It is approximately 55 minutes in length", Avenatti said. "It leaves no question as to Mr. Kelly's guilt on the tape".

The lawyer says he has learned of a third tape but did not provide details about it.

Kelly's attorney warned against judging his client too quickly.

Avenatti, 48, who is now representing six clients - two alleged victims, two parents and two "whistleblowers" - in the investigation against Kelly shared screenshots from the alleged sex tape on his Twitter account and addressed them further during a press conference held on Friday.

"All of this is ridiculously premature", he said. He now has to pay 10 per cent of the total to leave custody.

According to member station WBEZ, Kelly's case was assigned to Cook County Associate Judge Lawrence Flood; Kelly's next court date was set for March 22.

Prosecutors have said a videotape shows Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

"I don't know if it's R. Kelly or not on those photos, but anyone can have photos", Greenberg said.

His lawyer said victims who came out to accuse the singer had been 'coached.' . The singer does not own the rights to some of his most popular hits such as 'I Believe I Can Fly, ' which means that Kelly's residual income is practically non-existent.

But as reported by The Post's Geoff Edgers last year, the music industry overlooked Kelly's alleged behavior for years - even amid the 2008 trial and earlier reports of inappropriate behavior, including his illegal 1997 marriage to his 15-year-old protege, Aaliyah. The back rent continued to pile up, and the judge finally signed off on an eviction.

With Kelly's finances in doubt - not including his lawyer fees, he owes overdue rent and unpaid child support - some of his shameless fans and supporters have chose to launch crowdfunding efforts to help raise his bail money.

At the Saturday proceedings, the prosecution also released four documents outlining the basis of their charges against Kelly.

The singer will reportedly not have to pay his outstanding child support before making bail.
