Kelly Released From Prison After Child Support Debt Is Paid

Kelly Released From Prison After Child Support Debt Is Paid

The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and Kelly was freed shortly afterwards.

Of course, even though he's free from jail today, it's FAR from the end for Kelly in court; the singer is still facing a whopping ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse in Chicago, and other sexual misconduct allegations are triggering investigations elsewhere right now, too.

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to the sexual abuse charges.

But he got sprung three days later when a suburban Chicago business owner ponied up his $100,000 bail.

Greenberg also said he didn't know how the child support will play out, whether or not a judge will reduce the $20,000 a month Kelly paid "religiously" until the allegations against him and ultimately the charges made it impossible to do.

"I sit here and say this: I had two cases back then that I said in the beginning of the interview that I would not talk about because of my ongoing case now", the singer explained.

Somehow R. Kelly (full name Robert Sylvester Kelly) was able to find the needed sum and was granted his released.

And it marked the second time in three weeks that the entertainer walked out of the same jail.

According to R.Kelly's attorney, Steven Greenberg, who spoke immediately after Kelly on his behalf, the once lucrative artist was faithful in making payments.

Wearing a red jacket and a hooded shirt, Kelly - most recently jailed on accusations of failing to pay child support - briefly addressed reporters outside of jail. "This is not me", he said, adding that he is "fighting for my life".

"It's open season on R.Kelly".

When asked how she felt about that statement, Gayle said, "I don't think he helped himself, because I think 99.9 percent of people who have been following this story believe that he was married and had sex with Aaliyah, she was certainly underage". I'm not Lucifer. I'm a man.

Trudeau denies 'partisan' meddling in prosecution
At Thursday's news conference, Trudeau picked up this theme, saying Wilson-Raybould should have come to him if she felt pressured. If Trudeau can't offer up specific details to address it, perhaps the justice committee can at least invite Wilson-Raybould back.
