Things continue to get worse for R. Kelly.
He's already facing 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse. Today he's been hit with 11 new counts of sexual assault and abuse.
Prosecutors charged Kelly with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, two counts of criminal sexual assault by force, two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against a victim between 13 and 16 years old.
Some of the charges carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
Kelly's defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, chimed in on Twitter to clarify that Kelly had not been charged in a new case, but recharged in an existing case.
