Kelly detained after child support hearing

R Kelly has been detained for non-payment of child support

According to court documents reviewed by CNN last month, Kelly owed more than $169,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife as of February 6. Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari told The Associated Press that Kelly was detained, and will be transferred to the county jail. 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.

Kelly's publicist, Darryll Johnson, said the musician showed up with $50,000 or $60,000, but the judge wanted the full amount paid. "As you know, he hasn't worked in a long time", Johnson told the Tribune. Kelly is out on bail of $100,000 for that case and has another court date March 22.

Kelly left the courtroom with his lawyers through a different door than he entered.

In a video shared by publicist Dontaye Carter on Twitter shortly after R. Kelly spoke to CBS This Morning's Gayle King, she told her anxious family, "I have told you guys a million, million times, that I'm OK where I am and I'm happy, so I just really want to let you know that".

R. Kelly is back in police custody.

Wednesday also marked Kelly's first TV interview since being indicted last month on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four alleged victims. "This not me", Kelly told "CBS This Morning", saying he was "fighting" for his life. "Do you hear me? What kind of love is it that keeps these young women away from their families?"

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

Both of the ladies' families said that they have been unable to contact them for years, leading them to believe that Kelly has brainwashed them into following his orders. I understand that you're happy, but why haven't you been able to call any of your family or friends, or come to your granddaddy's funeral?

The 52-year-old singer has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty.

When asked how Kelly can still live in the Trump Tower, he replied that Kelly "has some money".

"I am crying because you guys don't know the truth and you guys believe in some f*****g facade that our parents are saying for money and if you can't see that then you're ignorant and you're stupid!"
Kelly continued emotionally, standing up. Kelly has consistently denied any sexual misconduct and was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.

While CBS reported that Azriel's parents claim to have text messages that prove Kelly had sex with their daughter before she turned 18, Kelly brushed it off as a lie. R Kelly did this to me'.
