R Kelly Regains Freedom After Raising $161,633 Outstanding Child Support Payment In 24 Hours

Embattled singer R. Kelly is once again a free man as he was released from Jail early Saturday morning after making his outstanding child support payments.

Kelly whose real name is Robert owed his ex-wife Drea Kelly $161,633 for their three children. As he walked out of the Cook County Jail, he released a small statement saying;

“I promise we’re gonna straighten all this out. That’s all I can say right now. I love my fans.”

According to Hollywoodunlocked, sources close to the singer say that he was able to gather up all the money with help from a “benefactor”.

Kelly was arrested on Wednesday after missing the deadline to settle his back child support.

He claims that it was Drea who contributed to him not being able to pay saying that she spread “lies” about him which resulted in him not being able to make money.
