R. Kelly Doesn't Think Career Is Over Despite Sex Abuse Case

The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and the singer was released from the Chicago jail shortly afterwards.

Kelly, 52, was ordered into custody on Wednesday by a judge after he said he did not have the entire $161,000 he owed in child support.

However, his lawyer, Steve Greenberg stayed behind and talked to the paparazzi a bit more. A judge ordered the singer to pay $175,000 in back rent, fees and costs to his landlord, who had filed the eviction suit in July. Following being released, Kelly addressed the press who were waiting for him outside of Cook County jail. That being said, the celeb's legal representative insisted that Kelly doesn't think his career is over. Kelly, whose real name is Robert, told CBS journalist Gayle King in new parts of their interview that aired Thursday that he blamed his ex-wife for his money woes. "This is not me", adding that he is "fighting for my f****** life". "Typically that section of the form is filled out", said Sam Randall, a spokesman for the sheriff's office.

"Anonymity in this situation is pretty rare". Celebrity website TMZ cited sources close to Kelly as saying an unidentified benefactor helped him.

Last month, the embattled musician was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, some involving underage victims, following years of allegations of sexual abuse from women and underage girls. Kelly and dancer Andrea Kelly divorced in 2009 and he is supposed to make payments of $20,000 per month, as well as educational expenses for his children, who are ages 16, 18, and 20. The "Ignition" singer pleaded with a judge to get the payment lowered, but his efforts didn't pull through. Court records indicate a 47-year-old Romeoville woman posted his bail, identifying herself on the bond slip as Kelly's "friend". "Use your common sense", he said through sobs and screams, before claiming that "people have been stealing my money".
