R.Kelly released from prison after 161,000$ child support bill paid

R Kelly poses for a mugshot photo after being arrested for $161,663 in unpaid child support earlier this week.

R Kelly has walked out of a Chicago jail, after a $161,000 child support payment was made on his behalf.

Cook county sheriff’s spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said someone paid $161,000 in back-dated child support for Kelly. She did not know who made the payment.

Kelly, 52, was charged last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse pertaining to four women, including three who were minors when the alleged abuse occurred. He has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The singer 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 bail. At the time, Kelly’s defense attorney said his finances were “a mess”.

Kelly told CBS This Morning people had stolen money from his bank accounts. He offered no details.
