On Friday we told you prosecutors in Chicago are investigating a newly-surfaced video allegedly showing R&B star R. Kelly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
The tape was turned in by Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing a man he calls a “whistleblower” against Kelly.
According to two sources close to the case, as a result of the new evidence, a grand jury has been convened in Cook County, Illinois regarding the allegations.
By law, grand jury proceedings are supposed to be secret so the state’s attorney would not confirm or deny the existence of any new investigation.
However the office has previously encouraged any alleged victims of Kelly to come forward.
Kelly’s attorney told CNN he is was not aware of any grand jury proceeding.
