CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 17: Singer R. Kelly appears during a hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse on September 17, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. Kelly is facing multiple sexual assault charges and is being held without bail.

R. Kelly was convicted yesterday of racketeering, including acts of bribery and sexual exploitation of a child, along with separate charges of sex trafficking.  As you can expect, it was not what Kelly expected. He released a statement via his now deleted Twitter account saying: “To all my fans and supporters I love you all and thank you for all the support,” so he wrote. “Today’s verdict was disappointing and I will continue to prove my innocence and fight for my freedom. #notguilty.”
