R. Kelly back in court for Child Support
R. Kelly's monthly child-support payments will remain at $21,000 per month for the time being, his lawyer told The Chicago Sun-Times and TMZ Wednesday as they left a closed hearing regarding the case, which is under seal.
Wednesday's court appearance was Kelly's first since last week, when a judge ordered him jailed for failing to pay more than $160,000 in back child support. Kelly was released from jail after the money was paid.
Kelly, who has previously said that he only has $350,000 in the bank and couldn't afford to pay his taxes or child support, got the rest of the delinquent child-support money from family and friends. However, in his Monday interview with CNN's Don Lemon, the publicist said that the money came from a fan, as did Kelly's $100,000 bail payment last month.
In the criminal case, Kelly has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse.
