R. Kelly freed from jail after someone made payment

R&B singer R Kelly has been released from a Chicago jail after an unknown donor paid £123,000 ($161,000) in child support owed by the star.

Kelly, 52, was taken into custody Wednesday after failing to pay more than $160,000 in child support to his ex-wife.

Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff's Office, said that the payment was made Saturday morning but that she was unsure who was responsible, The Associated Press reported.

On Feb. 22, he was taken into custody there after state prosecutors charged him with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

According to The Blast, the woman claims she was sexually abused by Kelly, and although she was adult herself at the time, she alleges to have seen him sexually abuse underage females during her time in an "extended relationship" with the singer.

And in January, a six-part documentary called "Surviving R. Kelly" was released.

In a statement issued Friday by her lawyer, Gloria Allred, the woman said "listening to R. Kelly's denials about what he did to underage girls like me was very hurtful".

He even appeared to be physically restrained during the animated outburst, in which he vehemently denied all allegations against him. Somehow R. Kelly (full name Robert Sylvester Kelly) was able to find the needed sum and was granted his released. "But I'm alive", Kelly added. "How?" Kelly said in the emotional CBS interview.

He ranted in an interview this week: "Quit playing, I didn't do this stuff". I'm fighting for my f-ing life! Kelly, whose attorney said at the time that the singer's finances were in disarray, then spent a weekend in jail before a 47-year-old suburban Chicago business owner posted his $100,000 bail.

Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, said he could not discuss the child support payment because of a judge's gag order in that case. You're killing me man! "Their mothers and fathers told me, 'We're going to destroy your career'".
