R Kelly will be released from jail in Chicago after he has sent out his $ 100,000 (£ 76,000) guarantee, said the spokesman for Cook's Sheriff's office.

R & B's former star said he was not to blame for 10 charges of violent sexual violence against four women, three of whom were minors at the time.

The 52-year-old boy appeared in court on Monday dressed in orange overalls after spending the weekend in jail.

On Friday, he surrendered to the police.

The singer has faced decades of sexual violence without being convicted, and has denied all previous allegations.

A spokeswoman for Cook's sheriff's office in Sofia, Ansari confirmed on Monday evening that Kelly has secured a 100,000-dollar guarantee, which is 10% of the $ 1 million bond set by a judge over the weekend.

His appearance and his accusation became weeks after the documentary Kelly Survival. It contained allegations of abuse by many women, including the former wife of the star.

Kelly denies all charges against him

The court ordered the singer, whose real name was Robert Sylvester Kelly, to pass his passport and have no contact with anyone under the age of 18.

He reportedly struggled to pay $ 100,000 to leave County Cook's prison.

Later on Monday, high-ranking attorney Gloria Allred told a press conference that she now represented more than six women who claimed the singer had misused them.

At the next court meeting on March 22, Kelly must appear.
