Despite spending the weekend in jail on sexual abuse charges, R. Kelly apparently hasn’t lost all of his fans. After posting bail Monday evening, the embattled R&B singer, 52, headed straight to a McDonald’s, where he was greeted by some well-wishers. Kelly signed autographs, with one person even yelling out, “I love you! I love you!”

Michael Avenatti, who aided in the Cook County state’s attorney’s office’s investigation by turning over an alleged sex tape of Kelly with a minor, claimed the singer “preyed on underage girls” for “years” at the same McDonald’s. Avenatti tweeted that he believes Kelly has already violated terms of his bail conditions. (Kelly was ordered to have no contact with females younger than 18.)

Avenatti says he represents seven clients involved in the case.

Last week, the “Ignition” crooner was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault involving four victims, three of whom were minors. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to all charges and doesn’t seem too fazed by the serious nature of the allegations. (If convicted, Kelly faces a maximum of three to seven years in prison on each charge.) After McDonald’s, he enjoyed a night out in Chicago at a cigar bar.

Avenatti said on Monday he turned over a second videotape to prosecutors that allegedly shows Kelly engaging in a sex act with a 14-year-old girl. “It leaves no doubt as to R. Kelly’s guilt as to these serious sex crimes against underage girls,” Avenatti tweeted Tuesday.

Through his attorney, Kelly has denied all accusations of pedophilia and sexual abuse.
