Just few hours after an interview with Gayle King, R.Kelly is said to be back in jail and this time, he is held behind the bars for his failure to child support.
According to TMZ, R. Kelly was taken out of the courtroom, after his arrest. No word from the court have been officially, but it would appear he didn’t cough up the $161k for child support. Failure to pay child support in any amount over $20,000 is a felony under Illinois law.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sam Randall told USA TODAY Kelly was taken into custody in the courtroom and will be transferred to the county jail, where he will stay until he pays what he owes. His next court date in the matter was set for March 13.
Sources connected to the embattled singer tell us Kelly hasn’t covered the $161,633 he owes to his ex-wife, Drea Kelly.
