Musician R. Kelly has been charged with 11 additional counts of sexual assault by prosecutors in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune reported on Thursday.

Kelly, 47, was charged in February with 10 counts of aggravated sexual assault. The musician pleaded not guilty to the charges. He was released after paying $100,000 bond.

The Tribune reported that three of the new counts accuse him of abusing victims between the ages of 13 and 16. Also, the Tribune reported that four of the new counts are of aggravated sexual assault.

The Tribune reported that Kelly will be back in court next week.
