R Kelly back in jail in child support case

Last month, a Cook County judge issued an order that would send Kelly to jail if he didn't pay the $161,663 he owes his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, by 10 a.m. Wednesday. A spokesperson for the Cook County Sheriff's Office tells The Associated Press that Kelly will be transferred to the Cook County Jail. He had previously been out on bond after spending four days in jail on charges of sexual abuse.

Kelly, who denied ever having sex with anyone under 17, married 15-year-old R&B singer Aaliyah D. Haughton in Detroit in 1994 when he was 27. She says, "I'm crying because you guys don't know the truth".

Judge Lori Rosen set the court date after she found Kelly was behind on payments for the care of his three children.

During an explosive interview on CBS's "This Morning," R&B star R. Kelly blamed his alleged victims' parents for selling him their daughters.

Kelly was released from jail on February 25 after he paid 10 percent of his $1 million bail amount. The conversation, which journalist Gayle King taped Tuesday at Kelly's apartment at the Trump Tower Chicago, began airing on Wednesday in three segments on CBS This Morning.

The couple's attorney, Gerald Griggs, bristled at Kelly's assertions that the Savages offered up their daughter to him and were in it for the money. "What kind of love is it that keeps these young women away from their families?"

Kelly additionally spoke on claims he holds women hostage in his home for, what many have called, his sex cult. That being said, he argued that they only came out about his reported sexual abuse when they stopped 'getting money from me'.

"All of them are lying", Kelly said "I have been assassinated".

Later in the week, the network will air an interview with Azriel and Joycelyn and a teaser clip saw the younger woman scream at Gayle as she defended Kelly. Kelly's income took a significant hit after he was dropped by his record label amid public outcry over allegations of sexual abuse of minors raised in the Lifetime documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly".

In a particularly dramatic moment, he angrily stood up and started pacing, his voice breaking as he yelled, "I didn't do this stuff!"

Kelly was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008 that centered on a graphic video that prosecutors said showed him having sex with a girl as young as 13.

"Whether they're old rumours, new rumours, future rumours, not true", Kelly said. "Because he knows that after over two decades of sexually abusing underage girls, we blew this wide open and have him and his enablers dead to rights".
