R. Kelly has had an eventful couple of months. Having already gone to jail twice in the past couple months, he might be going in for a third time. If he does head back to jail this time around, it would be for the same reason he got locked up in March.
According to TMZ, R. Kelly seems to have missed the last two months of his child support payments to his ex-wife Drea Kelly. She reportedly receives more than $20K a month, and after being sent to jail in March for not paying the $161,633 he owed, it’s unclear why he hasn’t paid up. Kelly was released after someone cleared the debt he owed.
The singer had already told the judge that he would be unable to pay the $20K asked from himself. However, Kelly’s reasoning will not be heard until his next hearing on May 8th.
Multiple issues have also left R. Kelly without the same amount he previously had. He reportedly owed his landlord $173K over unpaid rent money was then taken from his account, leaving him with a balance of -$13.
It’s just a matter of time until we get new news from the R. Kelly saga, until then we’ll have to wait until his May 8th hearing.
