Singer R. Kelly entered a plea of not guilty this morning to all five charges thrown at him by federal prosecutors for New York’s Eastern District. That was to be expected, as the R&B singer has consistently claimed his innocence throughout all his legal woes. He was also denied bond again. His two live-in girlfriends, Azriel Clary and Jocelyn Savage, flew up from Chicago for the court proceedings, but no one knows what they’re expecting because they stayed quiet as they passed reporters…

TMZ is reporting attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing three unnamed victims in the New York federal case, just stated there are 13 alleged R. Kelly victims participating across the country in cases building against the singer. The New York case deals mostly with racketeering and conspiracy charges supported by the Mann Act, but the federal case in Illinois, as well as state charges brought by the Cook County DA’s office, drill down on individual acts of sex abuse, child pornography, and rape.

The attorneys for R. Kelly also made a statement mostly defending R. Kelly’s comments at the hearing calling the alleged victims in the case “disgruntled groupies.” At the microphones, his lawyer, Douglas Anton, doubled down on the slur himself saying… “They are groupies. Maybe they’re having groupie remorse.”

R. Kelly is set to fly with marshals back to Illinois to face the music in federal court there. As the heat turns up, you can see it’s getting nastier and nastier. Don’t worry, we’ll keep you plugged in – until the next time it drips…
