Things are not getting any better for R. Kelly.

Hours after being placed in jail for the second time in less than a month after failing to make his child support payments, we are learning of a brand new investigation on another possible sexual assault.

The Detroit Police Department is now investigating allegations that the singer sexually assaulted a 13-year-old back and 2001.

Department chief James Craig issued a statement on the new investigation.

“We are aware of the allegations made against R. Kelly that possibly occurred in 2001, he said. “Approximately a month ago, we received information from Chicago Police Department of a victim, who lives out of state, who had made allegations of a criminal sexual conduct incident against R. Kelly. The incident allegedly occurred in the City of Detroit when the victim was 13 years old.”

He later continued.

“Based on the information received we have made several attempts to follow up with the victim. We have reached out, at the direction of the victim, to her lawyer and we are eagerly waiting to speak to her concerning the allegations. Right now, we have not made contact with her.” 

The Detroit Free Press reports that the alleged girl had sex with R. Kelly at a hotel in December 2001, and later at a studio in Detroit. She continued seeing the singer for four years, and it is also being claimed that he gave her herpes when she was 17-years-old.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.
