R. Kelly jailed until he pays $161K in child support

‘They Wanted Me To!’: R. Kelly Claims Parents Wanted Him to Have Sex with Teen Daughter

Kelly is now jailed after being taken into custody at a hearing about unpaid child support.

A spokesperson for the Cook County Sherriff's Office confirms to ET that the 52-year-old singer is being transported to Cook County Jail to be booked. His hands weren't cuffed. A Cook County, Illinois judge said that Kelly must pay the $161,000 in full in order to be released.

R. Kelly is heading back behind bars after failing to pay more than $160,000 in back child support, an ongoing legal issue unrelated to his highly publicized sexual abuse charges.

Kelly was released from jail on February 25 after he paid 10 percent of his $1 million bail amount. The money was put forth by a female fan who met him on a Lake Michigan cruise last fall.

R. Kelly spent a few days behind bars last month after he was hit with 10 felonies for allegedly molesting three teenagers and an adult over the past 20 years. His next court hearing in the case is set for March 13. During the sit-down, they both broke down in tears, with one vehemently blaming her parents for the narrative that is now surrounding the controversial star.

When it rains it pours for the disgraced singer R. Kelly, as amid fighting off the well-publicized charges of sexual abuse, he's also reportedly facing jail time for unpaid child support. It's real. And I know guys - like, I've known guys all my life that have five or six women, okay?




Embattled singer R. Kelly was arrested on Wednesday following a child support hearing in Chicago.

However, a family in Georgia said they haven't been in contact with their daughter for two years.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to the 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse that he faces. But paperwork on the back child support was made public in Kelly's criminal court file. After the interview, one of the young women who now lives with Kelly spoke with her family for the first time in years. He denied doing anything against their will. He says he needs someone to help him "not have a big heart".

Instead, R. Kelly has been receiving a lot of criticism for dating the underage girl!

CBS says it interviewed Kelly for 80 minutes. It was his first television interview about the sex abuse case against him, where he told reporter Gayle King that his accusers are liars. The current predicament he finds himself in is not directly related to the prosecutors undertaken by Michael Avenatti & company, even though causal links do readily exist between Kelly's ex-wife Drea and the singer's twisted history of molesting underage women.
