I’m Slowly Learning To Be Less Harsh On Myself
Wednesday July 17, 2019

I’m slowly learning to be less harsh on myself. It’s okay if it takes me a while to get rid of my baggage. It’s okay if I don’t always say the right thing. It’s okay if my flaws see the light of day. Perfection is impossible. The standards I’m holding myself to are impossible. That’s … "I’m Slowly Learning To Be Less Harsh On Myself"

As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times, it wasn’t immediately clear whether the new federal charges against Kelly are related in any way to the charges that were filed against him earlier this year.
Although he was being held in federal custody, it also wasn’t clear where the 52-year-old was being held – or whether he will face a judge.
Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, confirmed the singer was arrested but declined further comment. As per ABC News, Kelly’s representative, Darrell Johnson, said he will hold a press conference at 9:30am Eastern time today (July 7).

These new charges are the latest in a number of legal issues for Kelly this year. The singer is also facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse involving four alleged victims.
These offences are alleged to have been committed against four females between the years 1998 and 2010, with three of the females being under the age of 17 when the alleged assaults took place.
The singer’s list of charges were initially released by Matt Masterson, a reporter for WTTW who attended the trial and had access to the state proffer against Kelly.
Masterson posted a tweet of the charges against the singer at the time, which detailed the four separate indictments for each alleged victim.

Earlier this year, Kelly pleaded not guilty to all charges against him – some of which date back to 1998.
As per ABC News, the 52-year-old last appeared in court on June 26, when prosecutors disclosed a VHS tape allegedly containing pornographic images of the singer with a minor.
