A US court has ruled that cameras will be allowed in the courtroom during the trial and pre-trial in R. Kelly’s sexual abuse case.

However, the R&B singer’s accusers can’t be photographed or filmed without their consent.

Kelly’s lawyer welcomed the ruling saying now the media can get to know the real truth.

The Grammy-winning singer is set to appear in court again on March 22.

Two of Kelly’s accusers have already said they don’t want to be photographed, filmed, or have their voices recorded in court.

52-year-old Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse pertaining to four women, including three who were minors at the time.
