R. Kelly’s back on the streets after finally covering his unpaid child support. The singer forked over the $161,633 he owes to ex-wife, Drea Kelly, and was released Saturday morning from Cook County Jail.
As he walked out, Kelly said, “I promise we’re gonna straighten all this out. That’s all I can say right now. I love my fans.” Interestingly, he did have fans screaming for him outside … including one woman who yelled, “Please touch my hand!”
Sources connected to Kelly says he scraped together the money with help from a “benefactor.”
R. Kelly was arrested Wednesday when he missed the deadline to settle up his back child support. During his CBS interview, he blamed his ex for his failure to pay her … claiming her “lies” about abuse are the reason he can’t make any money.
