R Kelly released from jail after after child support payment is made

Report: R. Kelly To File Docs To Get Back Child Support Reduced Following Arrest

Three days after being jailed for failing to meet a court-ordered deadline to pay $161,663 in overdue child support to his ex-wife - and less than two weeks after being released from custody following an assault arrest - singer R. Kelly is once again free.

After he was initially jailed for the back-owed child support, R. Kelly was depressed, Johnson said, adding that "he should have been".

The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and he was set free shortly afterwards. He said that was all he could say, a stark contrast to a nationally televised broadcast that aired earlier in the week in which he cried and ranted about being "assassinated" by allegations of sexual abuse that led to criminal charges last month.

Last month, he also spent three nights in jail after he was charged in four sex-abuse cases and failed to post bond right away.

The platinum-selling star exited Chicago's Cook County Jail around noon on Saturday, reports The Chicago Tribune, noting that Kelly was accompanied by an unidentified man. He speculated that the money was raised by friends and fans but said he didn't know exactly who had raised it. The controversial crooner has reportedly paid over $160,000 in child support days after getting placed behind bars.

Kelly said, "I promise we're gonna straighten all this out".

Kelly Back in Custody Over Unpaid Child Support
Kelly ". "When you beat something, you beat it". "You guys don't know the truth!" she yelled. "It's not fair", he said. Kelly was detained just over a week after he pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

Kelly's lawyer, Steve Greenberg, spoke to reporters outside of the jail after Kelly was released.

Kelly is expected back in court on Wednesday.

R. Kelly has been a target of a boycott campaign, and his recording contract has been cancelled.

As reported in the recent "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary, the R&B singer allegedly married Aaliyah when she was just 15 years old.

"As far as the child support matter, what was posted, the judge has entered a gag order, so we can't really talk about that", Greenberg said. "[But] they're pressured [not to see him], and I get it". How can I take care of my kids?

He spent a weekend in jail after his arrest last month and was not freed until a 47-year-old suburban Chicago business owner posted his 100,000 U.S. dollar (£77,000) bail.
