Kelly Released From Jail After Someone Paid His Owed Child Support

Kelly pleaded not guilty on February 25 to 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse against four victims three of them minors

When asked if R. Kelly was too passionate in his recent interview with Gayle King, Johnson said that R. Kelly is fighting for his life against these charges and the singer is "an emotional guy".

Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for Cook County Sheriff's Department, which operates the jail, did not immediately know who paid the back child support. Police in Detroit say they want to speak with a woman who claims Kelly abused her when she was 13.

During the tense interview, Kelly claimed that the allegations that he has sexually, emotionally and physically abused women and girls for decades are "stupid", "not true" and "not fair".

This scenario was likely, since Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg said Kelly's finances were "a mess" after the docu-series Surviving R. Kelly aired earlier this year. He paid it religiously until he couldn't make any more money because of all of these statements being made.

The singer previously spent three nights in jail two weeks ago after he was unable to post bond after being charged in four sex abuse cases. "How can I pay child support? How?"

India returns key diplomat to Pakistan as tensions ease
This advisory has been issued in the wake of escalating tensions between India and Pakistan, following the Pulwama terror attack. He said Pakistan should take concrete steps "against terrorists and terror infrastructure" on its territory.

Wearing a red jacket and a hooded shirt, Kelly - most recently jailed on accusations of failing to pay child support - briefly addressed reporters outside of jail.

It was the second time Kelly was freed from the Cook County jail in his hometown Chicago.

The latest stint in jail came shortly after an explosive interview with CBS This Morning, his first since his arrest in February on the aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges.

R. Kelly and his ex now have three children together, Robert, Jay, and Joann, who are 17, 19, and 21 respectively. Another, also 16, sought an autograph outside his 2008 trial for child pornography; he was acquitted in that case. The program apparently detailed a plethora of transgressions of the singer, sleeping with underage girls being one of them, and allegedly using his influence in the scene to create a "sex cult".

This week, rap star Meek Mill weighed-in on R. Kelly's current legal nightmare.
