R. Kelly Arrested Over Unpaid Child Support

R. Kelly gave a tense interview to CBS This Morning at one point standing and shouting tearful denials at the cameras and at anchor Gayle King

R. Kelly is heading back behind bars after failing to pay more than $160,000 in back child support, an ongoing legal issue unrelated to his highly publicized sexual abuse charges.

R. Kelly could not come up with the money so he was placed in handcuffs and led off to the Cook County Jail.

At his bond hearing on the sex abuse cases, the judge denied a request from prosecutors to hold Kelly in jail until he had both posted bond and paid his child support. The irony of his arrest is that he inferred that these allegations are keeping him from being a good father to his children.

Darryll Johnson, Kelly's publicist, told reporters after the hearing that Kelly had arrived at the courthouse prepared to pay anywhere between $50,000 to $60,000 upfront.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari says Kelly was taken into custody Wednesday during a hearing over the child support and that his next hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday.

Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary's talk with King was teased on Wednesday morning, with the clip showing the ladies visibly distraught while being questioned about their relationship with Kelly.

R. Kelly performs during The Buffet Tour at Allstate Arena on May 7, 2016, in Chicago, Illinois.

He spent a weekend in jail on the sex charges before being released on $100,000 bail on February 25. "I mainly want to say that I'm in a happy place with my life and I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that", she told TMZ in 2017. His defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, followed soon after. "I'm trying to have a relationship with my kids, and I can't do it. Y'all just don't want to believe the truth!"

"There are older men who like younger women and older women who like younger men". They say Kelly won't let her contact them, which Kelly denied in his interview with "CBS This Morning".

"I'm very exhausted of all of the lies", Kelly told King. "I gave you 30 years of my f-ing career!" When King asked Kelly if he has held women against their will, he replied, "That's stupid!" We have never asked R. Kelly for money.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty to the 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse that he faces. During the sit-down, they both broke down in tears, with one vehemently blaming her parents for the narrative that is now surrounding the controversial star.

In the course of speaking with King, Kelly made a startling new accusation.

However, police say they have not yet spoken with the woman. "Because he knows that after over two decades of sexually abusing underage girls, we blew this wide open and have him and his enablers dead to rights".
