Daycare Owner Who Paid $100K for R. Kelly’s Temporary Freedom Can’t Get Refund, Judge Rules

Published: Tuesday 17th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Daycare and restaurant owner, Valencia Love, rocked headlines in February when she paid $100,000 to help her ‘friend’ R. Kelly bond out of a Chicago jail after he was arrested for multiple counts of sexual abuse and indecency with minors (click here to read more).

Her efforts quickly proved futile, however, as the Grammy winner was arrested again just days later – this time for unpaid child support.  Despite singing a few sad songs about his financial status, Kelly was able to post bail again only to be detained by New York authorities on federal charges in July (click here to read more on that).

Due to the quick turnaround of 52-year-old’s reincarceration, Love petitioned a Cook County judge for a refund of her six figure contribution to this freedom.  The official decision was handed Tuesday (September 17) and it’s pretty safe to say Valencia probably wasn’t pleased.


“Valencia Love put up the $100,000 in February; she had met the singer on a boat cruise, according to a friend of Kelly.

Love filed a motion because she wants that money back. Her attorney appeared in court Tuesday at a status hearing in Kelly’s state criminal case. He told the judge his client had no knowledge of federal investigations in New York or Illinois when she posted bond and that Kelly is a man of “vast resources.” Judge Lawrence Flood denied that motion.”

    ??? what a moron she deserves to lose her money

  2. Meme September 17, 2019

    Screaming. although I do feel she deserves her money back, I can’t feel sorry for her.

  3. Urg September 17, 2019

    Did she really think she would get it back. What a dummy. Bish Kellz will spend the rest of his days trapped in a jail cell.

      She will get it back next year after his trial. Everyone knows u dont get bail money back early.

    • Meme September 17, 2019

      Everyone get their bail money back once the suspect doesn’t go missing.

    Really, I wonder if she will be able to get it backed once he goes to trial? I mean I thought bond money was returned as long as the accused makes it to court…I guess. I don’t think she deserves it. She is not judge nor jury, nor GOD. She was helping a friend and that is what friends do..even in hard situations as this. Good luck to her.

      I believe that is how it works, she would get it back if he showed up to court, but I think his other arrests while out on bond is what complicated things.

  16. Sharon Reap September 18, 2019

    She should have never posted his bail in the beginning because he was trying to run to another country after he got out the first time so consider it charity
