Accused of raping several African-American children, the performer Aaliyah included, the entertainer has been forced to use his money to combat the never-ending stream of legal darts his attacks on young girls have created as more evidence surfaces.
And now, much like his hairline, his finances are receding mercilessly.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wintrust Bank, where Kelly holds an account, informed one of his creditors (his former landlord) that the singer currently has a balance of negative $13 with them.
Kelly did have two other accounts with Bank of America — holding $44,595.58 and $110,056.64, for a grand total of $154,527.22 — but everything but $625 was seized by his former landlord to settle a massive debt owed.
The true nature of his current financial status was unveiled as part of a legal battle between the singer and his former landlord fuelled by his failure to cover rent he owed.
The landlord scored a $173k judgment and had been trying to collect on the debt.
$154,000 of this figure was prised from the star’s Bank of America account and the landlord to force Kelly’s former label, Sony Music, to use the money he has generated for them to pay the difference.
