R. Kelly Released from Jail After Child Support Payment Made

R. Kelly Released from Jail After Child Support Payment Made

"He paid it religiously until he couldn't make any more money because of all of these statements that are being made and all of the rumors and all of the innuendo and, frankly, because of the charges".

In order for him to be released, he needed to pay his ex-wife, Drea Kelly, $161,633.

Grasping a white manila folder with his right hand, he gesticulated with his left hand, saying, "I promise you we're gonna straighten all this stuff out".

State prosecutors in Chicago say Kelly abused four victims, three of them underage girls, from 1998 to 2010.

R. Kelly was freed from prison earlier this afternoon, after an unknown donor put up the money, after a judge sent him to jail on March 6, until he paid the full amount in arrears.

And as he walked out of jail, Kelly had words for the cameras and media members that gathered there to document his freedom, too.

"So we won't keep messages or stories around for longer than necessary to deliver the service or longer than people want them". Interoperability will also enable Facebook to integrate messaging between the Messenger , Instagram and WhatsApp platforms.

As previously mentioned, Kelly was taken into police custody after failing to cough up his $161,633 in back child support on Wednesday. Just hours after his arrest, new allegations of sexual abuse against the 52-year-old singer surfaced.

Greenberg declined to say how much Kelly posted Saturday to walk out of jail. Um, really?! We'd love to know who THAT person might be... He has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty.

The singer's recent legal troubles have highlighted the fact that his finances are now "a mess", and he even claimed in a recent CBS interview that someone had been stealing from his bank accounts.

In the case of alleged sexual abuse, Kelly was jailed on February 22 and released three days later after posting $100,000 bail. He spent three nights at Cook County Jail, 2700 S. California Ave., before someone wishing to remain anonymous posted money on Kelly's behalf Saturday.

His publicist Darryll Johnson said the singer came to the hearing prepared to pay $50,000 to $60,000, but the judge wanted the whole amount. "But I'm alive", Kelly told interviewer Gayle King.
