As it continues. 

R. Kelly was released from Cook County jail on Saturday, (March 9th) after an anonymous person allegedly paid $161,000 on his behalf.

The singer was arrested for outstanding child support payments. This is the second time in 2 weeks Kelly was released from the Chicago jail.  He had outstanding payments dating back to eight months ago.

Reportedly, R. Kelly’s publicist told reporters that Kelly only had $60,000 to contribute to the outstanding amount. He stated he couldn’t work due to his on-going criminal cases. After being released, Kelly spoke to reporters, “I promise, we will straighten this out. That is all I can say right now.”

Last month Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse pertaining to four women. A 47 year-old suburban woman posted his $100,000 bail.
