R. Kelly released from jail after being held for unpaid child support

Kelly pleaded not guilty on February 25 to 10 counts of aggravated criminal sex abuse against four victims three of them minors

He has denied wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty.

Less than two weeks earlier, Kelly, 52, spent another three days in the jail complex on Chicago's Southwest Side after bombshell indictments on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Greenberg would not comment on who posted the child support money because he says a judge has imposed a gag order.

And as he walked out of jail, Kelly had words for the cameras and media members that gathered there to document his freedom, too.

The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and he was set free shortly afterwards. He also stated that he loved his fans.

According to R.Kelly's attorney, Steven Greenberg, who spoke immediately after Kelly on his behalf, the once lucrative artist was faithful in making payments.

Democrats with massive congressional investigation, pressure on Trump
The Trump Foundation is already under investigation by the NY attorney general, which also ordered it to be closed down. Cohen told the House Oversight and Reform Committee that Trump Organization employees regularly lied for Trump.

The embattled singer was taken into custody on March 6, following a hearing in Chicago for failing to pay his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, overdue child support by a court-ordered deadline. When interviewer King asked whether the children want to have a relationship with him, Kelly replied, "I bet you they do".

After he was initially jailed for the back-owed child support, R. Kelly was depressed, Johnson said, adding that "he should have been".

The platinum-selling star exited Chicago's Cook County Jail around noon on Saturday, reports The Chicago Tribune, noting that Kelly was accompanied by an unidentified man.

The Grammy winner's arrest came just hours after he appeared in an explosive interview with CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King.

Multiple women have come forward over the years, accusing R. Kelly of sexual abuse. Prosecutors allege he abused one woman and three girls over the span of 12 years - including a 16-year-old he met at his 2008 child pornography trial. "I'm fighting for my f--ing life". I've given you 30 years of my f****g career!

David France - Drea Kelly's manager - told the Sun-Times, "Mr. Kelly has more than 20 people on his staff who, needless to say, are being paid".
