R Kelly back in jail over unpaid child support
R. Kelly is on his way back to jail just over a week after being released on bond following his arrest on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The Chicago Tribune reports that Kelly has been taken into custody following a hearing on almost $200,000 that he owes in back child support.
Spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff’s Office Sophia Ansari told the Tribune that Judge Lori Rosen ordered Kelly’s arrest, after warning him last month that he faced jail time unless he paid.
Earlier today, R. Kelly denied the allegations against him in a heated interview with Gayle King on “CBS This Morning.” “Stop it,” he insisted, “y’all, quit playing! I didn’t do this stuff. This is not me! I’m fighting for my f—ing life!”
