R Kelly released from jail, here’s why!

Singer R Kelly is out of jail after being put behind bars on Wednesday for failing to pay child support to his second ex-wife Andrea Lee to the tune of $161,663.

After a court hearing on Wednesday, the 52-year-old singer was taken into custody for failing to make child support payments. Kelly shares three children with his ex wife.

In just three days, he walked out of jail after a $161,000 payment was made on his behalf, by a mysterious ‘benefactor’.

While walking out, Kelly told reporters, “I promise we’re gonna straighten all this out. That’s all I can say right now. I love my fans.”

This is the second time the singer has seen jail time in the span of a few weeks. He was earlier charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. At that time, he was released after $100,000 was posted. He was held on a $1,000,000 bond of which he was required to pay only 10 percent.

Kelly has continuously denied all sexual allegations against him.  According to reports, however, the FBI is looking into whether R. Kelly violated the Mann Act, which prohibits transportation of minors across state lines for purpose of sex or debauchery. Attorney Michael Avenatti has said he has evidence to nail R. Kelly for that too.
