Kelly detained after child support hearing

Kelly detained after child support hearing

Singer R. Kelly has been taken into custody for failure to pay $161,000 in child support and was jailed Wednesday evening, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office in Chicago.

The Chicago singer was sent back to jail again, just over a week after a fan posted a percentage of his $1 million bail over the 10 felonies he is charged with for allegedly having sexual relations with three teens and another woman against her will. Kelly's publicist, Darryll Johnson added that Kelly was unable to pay the whole debt because his other legal troubles have prevented him from working.

Kelly for months had dodged service from Andrea Kelly's lawyers, which prevented the child support demands from moving forward in court, said David France, manager for Andrea Kelly, but the unpaid balance he owed his wife continued to build. King is a mature, established professional, they will say, who had to bite her tongue to keep Kelly from becoming violent. The singer blamed social media for fueling the allegations against him.

Hours before Wednesday's hearing, CBS aired an interview with the musician - his first public comments since being indicted last month on the sex assault charges - in which he at one point seemed to succumb to his emotions.

After R. Kelly's interview with Gayle yesterday aired and Joycelyn's family held a press conference condemning Kelly and begging their daughter to get in touch, Joycelyn reached out to her parents by phone and reiterated that she remains with Kelly by choice. You can't double jeopardy me like that. "No money was ever requested or given to the Savages".

"Use your common sense". Quit playing. I didn't do this stuff.

"How stupid would it be for me with my insane past and what I've been through [to say], 'Oh right now, I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will and chain them up in my basement?"

"Stop it. You all quit playing!" I'm fighting for my f***ing life!

"I'm trying to have a relationship with my kids and I can't do it" because of the sex-abuse allegations, he shouted.

He insisted people were trying to ruin his 30-year career, but then said his fight was "not about music". "I'm a man. I make mistakes, but I'm not a devil, and by no means am I a monster".

"I'm just telling the truth, " he replied. "You don't want to believe it!"
