It’s really not looking good for Robert Kelly.

Federal investigators discovered a secret bank account linked to the disgraced singer. A bank account in a different name reportedly has $1.2 million according to the Chicago Sun-Times

The account was created last year shortly after R. Kelly was charged with sex crimes Cook County Circuit Court. The name is under someone who obtained an LLC called SomeBrotherLuv. The singer’s music royalties have been reportedly forwarded there and prosecutors are investigating how the money was spent. While behind bars on a recorded jail line, Kelly directed people to contact a certain person to receive payments “indirectly from him.” 

This news comes a day after it was reported three men associated with the “Step In The Name Of Love” singer were charged for intimidating and threatening Kelly accusers. Kelly’s next trial date is in September, however, due to the pandemic, The Chicago trial is currently being asked to be delayed because it could create logistical issues that could result in a mistrial.
