Video Of R. Kelly Released Again From Jail, Women Screams “Touch My Hand” As He Walks By
Well, someone paid over $160,000 owed in back child support for R. Kelly, and now he’s free again.
The accused singer found someone to fork over exactly $161,633 that he owes to ex-wife, Drea Kelly. He was released this Saturday morning from Cook County Jail.
Statement To Press
As he walked out, Kelly said, “I promise we’re gonna straighten all this out. That’s all I can say right now. I love my fans.”
As TMZ covered this:
Interestingly, he did have fans screaming for him outside … including one woman who yelled, “Please touch my hand!”
Sources connected to Kelly tell us he scraped together the money with help from a “benefactor.”
R. Kelly was arrested Wednesday when he missed the deadline to settle up his back child support. During his CBS interview, he blamed his ex for his failure to pay her … claiming her “lies” about abuse are the reason he can’t make any money.
He also claims he’s trying to reconnect with his 3 kids, but sources close to the situation say that’s BS … he hasn’t even reached out to his family in nearly 2 years.
Kelly’s legal woes are just getting started. As you know, he’s still facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse in Chicago, multiple federal investigations … and new sexual misconduct allegations in Detroit.
More Charges: Human Trafficking
As we reported, Homeland Security are speaking to possible witnesses to indict Kelly on human trafficking charges. They are looking into whether R. Kelly violated the Mann Act, which prohibits transportation of minors across state lines for purpose of sex or debauchery.
Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg’s reacted to the investigation by stating,“That’s their job. But just because they are looking into something, certainly nobody should conclude that they have any evidence of any wrongdoing or a crime was committed.”
Attorney Michael Avenatti now says he has evidence to nail R. Kelly for that too.
Our investigation has now uncovered significant additional evidence that R Kelly and his handlers transported underage girls across state lines for the purpose of allowing him to sexually assault them. We will be turning over the evidence to law enforcement forthwith.
