R&B singer R. Kelly’s lawyer has entered a not guilty plea on behalf of his client as the singer faces multiple charges of sexual abuse in Chicago.

Kelly, entered the courtroom for the second time of his career wearing an orange jail jumpsuit after spending the weekend in a Chicago jail.

He was arrested on Friday on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving four females, three of whom were minors.

Kelly remains jailed after a judge on Saturday set bond at $US1 million ($NZ1.4 million). The Grammy Award-winning singer is required to pay 10 per cent, and his lawyer said Kelly’s confidants are trying to pay $US100,000 to get him released as he awaits trial.

 Among the conditions of release is that Kelly have no contact with females younger than 18.
