A Chicago judge on Saturday ordered a $1 million dollar bond for singer R.

Kelly on charges that he sexually assaulted three teenagers and a woman.

Cook County State's Attorney Kimberly Foxx said three of the four victims were under the age of 17, with the alleged abuses dating back as far as 1998.

R.

Kelly met one of his alleged victims at her 16th birthday party and told her to take a taxi from school to his recording studio - where he is accused of having sex with her..

(SOUNDBITE) COOK COUNTY STATE ATTORNEY KIMBERLY FOXX SAYING: "The victim had similar sexual encounters about once a month with Robert Kelly from May 26 1998 to May 25 1999." Another charge was based on a videotape that purportedly shows Kelly and a 14-year-old girl engaged in sexual acts.

A third alleged victim - Kelly's hairdresser who was then 24 years old - said that Kelly tried to force her to have oral sex with him in 2003... (SOUNDBITE) COOK COUNTY STATE ATTORNEY KIMBERLY FOXX SAYING: "...Robert Kelly then masturbated and ejaculated on the victim and spit on her face several times." Foxx said that the shirt the victim was wearing was submitted for DNA testing and it later matched with R.

The charges come after a documentary series called "Surviving R.

It details allegations from multiple women who accuse Kelly of sexual misconduct and abuse, sometimes with minors.

After the series aired, the singer's record label - RCA - cut its ties with the three-time grammy winner.
