R. Kelly charged with prostitution, solicitation in Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Minnesota authorities are charging singer R. Kelly with two counts of prostitution and solicitation involving a girl under 18 for an alleged incident in 2001.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says Robert Kelly is charged in an incident involving a girl he met at a concert.

Freeman says the girl asked Kelly for an autograph, and he gave her the autograph and a phone number.

The prosecutor says when the girl called she was invited to Kelly’s hotel, offered $200 to undress and dance.
