R. Kelly has been arrested for $161,633 USD worth of unpaid child support to his ex-wife, greeted at the Daley Centre Courthouse in Chicago with a media frenzy on Wednesday.
Following the singer pleading not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual assault, R. Kelly found himself once again facing the courtroom addressing the latest allegations. After soon being escorted out of the room and taken into police custody, The Cook County Sheriff’s Office later confirmed that R. Kelly was arrested for neglecting to pay his child support – and must pay it back in full if he wants to be released from jail.
