R Kelly faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, with at least nine involving minors, after a no-bail arrest warrant was issued.

The American R&B star has for decades denied claims of sexual abuse against women and teenagers below the age of consent.

Even with all the accusations, the musician has never been convicted.

However, an arrest warrant was issued and the 52-year-old turned himself in to police in Chicago later on Friday.

The indictment comes just weeks after a documentary series called Surviving R Kelly aired.

The documentary contained decades of allegations of abuse against R Kelly, from many women, including the singer's ex-wife.

Prosecutors announced the aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges against R Kelly involving four victims and said they took place between 1998 and 2010.

Documents say at least three of the victims were aged between 13 and 16 at the time of their reported assaults.
