Yesterday, R&B singer R. Kelly posted bond for $100,000 and left jail.

The singer-songwriter left Cook County jail after being charged with aggravated sexual abuse.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer went to a McDonald’s at 600 N. Clark St. in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, after leaving jail in Little Village.

After posting bond, Kelly was followed by a myriad of media representatives and at least one helicopter.

The McDonald’s that the singer went to is the same restaurant that Kelly would often frequent to solicit young girls, according to Spin and attorney Michael Avenatti.

After leaving McDonald’s, Kelly went to Biggs Mansion, a cigar lounge on the Gold Coast, where he spent several hours.

*Update*

This morning (Feb.26), attorney Michael Avenatti who submitted a video¬†of the entertainer having sex with an underage girl to Cook County prosecutors stated that the new additional video he submitted to prosecutors shows Kelly “clearly stating” that the victim is 14-years-old several times.

“Give me that 14-year-old p****,” Kelly said to the victim.
