Over the last several years, Kelly has been on the accused end of various sexual misconduct claims. In 2008, the entertainer was acquitted of child pornography charges, which came after accusations he videotaped himself having sex with underage girls.
Last year, BuzzFeed broke the story that several women alleged Kelly abused and imprisoned them as part of a “cult” at his estate in Johns Creek, Georgia. Last month, his former girlfriend accused Kelly of sexually abusing her from the age of 14.
Kelly has not responded to several requests for comment, but through his representative he told the Washington Post he "categorically denies all claims and allegations" in the Dallas criminal complaint.
Despite his legal battles, Kelly has maintained a successful touring and recording career, selling more than 60 million albums.
