R. Kelly back in jail AGAIN – after explosive interview

The rapper reportedly failed to pay child support


R. Kelly has reportedly been put back in jail following his child support hearing.

This is the rapper’s second time in jail in two weeks and has been  placed on $161,000 bond.

According to Entertainment Tonight, the 52-year-old  failed to pay child support to his second ex-wife, Andrea Lee, who he shares three children with – and is set for another court date on 13th March.

His publicist told ET that he offered to pay $50,000 to $60,000 in court and was willing to set up a payment plan, but the judge denied the offer.


The publicist said: “He was disappointed. He felt rejected. He was down. You could see the air go out of him.”

“He never expected that. He was never looking forward to that. He never knew that was coming.”


The arrest comes after R. Kelly appeared in his first interview since he pleaded not guilty to ten accounts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and was released on bail.

During the interview, the rapper continued to deny the claims against him.
