R. Kelly expressed frustration at his estrangement from his children while talking to Gayle King today. But bars instead of personal differences may end up separating the star from his offspring should he not make an overdue child support payment today.
The embattled star just arrived at Cook County Court in Chicago courthouse moments ago to answer to the suit filed against him by ex wife Andrea Kelly.
She asserts that the singer owes $160,000 in outstanding child support payments.
The deadline is today (March 6th) and as the amount is over $20,000, word is that he can formally be charged with a felony (and thus be held in cell).
As widely reported, Kelly is already on the hook for 10 counts of sexual assault – brought against him by a total of four women. Three of whom allege that they were underage at the time.
At the timing of his charging, the crooner ended up spending two nights in a Chicago jail after struggling to make payment on the 10% required of his $1 million bail.
Will he end up back behind bars before even standing trial in his initial case? Stay tuned.
