Subscribe to MTV alerts

R. KELLY's teenage nephew has been charged with attempted murder following an incident in a Chicago, Illinois barbershop earlier this month (Nov08) which resulted in his hospitalisation.
Brayel Kelly, the 16-year-old son of the R+B hitmaker's brother Carey Kelly, was shot twice in the back after allegedly attempting to rob the store.
Authorities claim he entered the shop with the intention of stealing cash and jewellery from the barbershop owner. Cops allege he brandished a gun and forced the victim to hand over his valuables.
But, as he turned to leave, the victim pulled out his own gun and a number of shots were exchanged - with two bullets hitting Kelly in the liver and his lung.
The teen is still in intensive care at Advocate Christ Medical Center - but Calumet City police officers have now charged him with attempted murder, attempted armed robbery and aggravated discharge of a firearm.
His bond has been set at $200,000 (GBP134,230) and a preliminary hearing has been set for 3 December (08).
Brayel's older brother Brandon, who is accused of acting as his lookout, has yet to be charged with any offence, reports
