Is R. Kelly About To Make A Dash For Dubai??
DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES (UAE) — While R. Kelly has a gig lined up in Dubai, is this also a plan of escape? Some sources think so. Here’s why.
According to Associated Press (AP), Dubai is mixed in with R. Kelly, amid his legal drama. On Thursday, the performer asked a U.S. judge to allow travel to the Arabian Peninsula in order to perform shows and “meet with the royal family.”
More on that in a moment, but first…
As you know, R. Kelly is currently facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse — having allegedly assaulted three underage girls and an adult woman, AP reports.
The source notes that Kelly’s lawyer, Steven A. Greenberg, mentions the singer needing to raise money. “He has struggled of late to pay his child support and other child related expenses,” Greenberg reportedly states.
NOTE: If you recall, R. Kelly was recently taken back into police custody after having not paid child support in quite some time. But apparently, he’s out on bail for that too — effectively posting a new video to his Instagram, serenading to his daughter.
