R.Kelly has been ordered to use the royalties he makes from his music to cover the child support costs.
News that’ll rattle the disgraced entertainer’s supporters below…
When critics-who were standing in solidarity with child abuse survivors- urged the world to #MuteRKelly, a number of his fans bit back by using streaming services to spin his music.
Their plan? To help the singer generate more income from the music many believed was powering his sexual predation.
Now, said plan has backfired.
For, their efforts to show the world that demand for Kelly music is still sky high has been used to argue that he is still capable of generating large sums of money from royalties. Money, that will now be handed to his ex-wife Andrea Kelly.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, a judge just ordered the R&B singer to use his royalties from entities such as BMI and Sony to pay Drea Kelly the $20,833 he owes her each month.
According to the docs, Kelly’s asking the court to cut him a little slack, but for now the judge says the dough must be drawn from those hefty royalties.
He will be smacked with fresh legal trouble if he misses a payment.
