R. Kelly released from jail after payment made

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to the sexual abuse charges. Cook County sheriff's spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said she did not know who made the payment. Kelly and dancer Andrea Kelly divorced in 2009 and he is supposed to make payments of $20,000 per month, as well as educational expenses for his children, who are ages 16, 18, and 20.

Attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted Saturday that he's found new evidence that Kelly "and his handlers transported underage girls across state lines for the objective of allowing him to sexually assault them". Kelly spent just one weekend in jail before a business owner in Chicago finally came to his aid and posted the $100,000 bail.

Valencia Love, 47, told WGN she's known Kelly for years, but provided no additional details: "When you fall to the bottom, no one is there". A judge ordered the singer to pay $175,000 in back rent, fees and costs to his landlord, who had filed the eviction suit in July.

The performer's time in jail was his second in a matter of weeks.

Little is known about Kelly's child-support problems because the entire case - originally a divorce filing - was ordered sealed by a judge years ago.

The singer was taken into custody during a hearing over the child support on Wednesday.

The indictment accuses Kelly of sexual acts with three children older than 13 but younger than 17.

"Our investigation has now uncovered significant additional evidence that R Kelly and his handlers transported underage girls across state lines for the goal of allowing him to sexually assault them".

Kelly was previously arrested when he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, and was forced to post $1 million as bail for his freedom.

In the latest charges, prosecutors allege Kelly tried to force oral sex on his 24-year-old hairdresser in 2003 - while he was free on bond on the then-pending child pornography charges. Somehow R. Kelly (full name Robert Sylvester Kelly) was able to find the needed sum and was granted his released.

In a recent interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, R & B Singer R. Kelly ranted about being the victim after being accused of sexually assaulting women, most underage.
