R&B singer R. Kelly was released from the Cook County jail today after someone paid $161,000 in child support arrearages Kelly owed his ex-wife. A court had ordered Kelly jailed for not paying the support.
Kelly recently appeared on national television and ranted, cried and raved about his plight claiming that he had been “assassinated.” by claims against him of sexual abuse. The embattled artist was charged last month with ten counts of aggravated criminal sexual conduct involving four alleged victims, three who were underage. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
OUR FREE OPINION
We find it disturbing that Kelly owed the money to start with. There seems to be a pattern of behavior where Kelly is concerned: He abuses women physically and neglects his financial responsibilities for them. We do not envision a favorable outcome for Kelly in the months to come.
