United States music artist, R. Kelly, is out of prison again after paying the $161, 633 child support bill he was jailed for.
The spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff’s Department, Sophie Ansari, explained that the confirmation for the payment was sent in on Saturday but she could not ascertain the person who sent it.
Kelly was re-arrested on Wednesday after he explained that he did not have as much as the $161, 633 that was due to be paid to the mother of his kids, Drea Kelly as child support.
Before his latest arrest, he had been arraigned and slammed with a 10-count charge of sexual abuse and assault on four women, over a period of twelve years. Three of the ladies were 13-17 back then.
For those offenses, R Kelly was jailed and asked to pay the sum of $1 million as bail. However, a woman, Valencia Love, posted a bond of $100,000 to the county, to secure his release. Valencia had referred to herself as a “friend” but further findings revealed that she is the owner of Lord & Child Christian Daycare.
Her gesture was instantly met with disapproval as many United States citizens became infuriated. Some threatened her with bombs, forcing her to relocate her daycare venue.
