R. Kelly Fails To Post 100K Bond For 2nd Straight Day!

Grammy Award winner R. Kelly is spending a second night in the slammer after failing to post his 100K bond after being charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four accusers.

Following his surrender to Chicago police Friday night, Cook County Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. set Kelly’s bond at $1 million during a Saturday afternoon court appearance. Kelly was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four accusers — three of whom prosecutors said were underage — between 1998 and 2010. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Steve Greenberg, Kelly’s attorney, told reporters Saturday that his client “really doesn’t have any money at this point” due to “mismanagement,” “hangers-on” and “bad deals.” He added, however, that Kelly would ultimately be able to come up with the $100,000 bail. That proved untrue.

But according to CNN, Kelly owes upwards of $169,000 in child support – which the court ordered him to pay by March 3 – and faces eviction from his Chicago studio for unpaid rent of more than $166,000.

Kelly has been accused of allegedly sexually abusing minors for years. He’s had enablers around him, protecting him from the law and that has sickened more than you think. As of right now, Kelly is being investigated in three states, Chicago, New York, and Georgia. Grand juries are planning to convene in each of those states against the songwriter.

In Georgia, the Fulton County District Attorney’s office is looking into reports that Kelly kept underage girls against their wills, inside of his Duluth home. They have used the words “sex cult,” in describing the environment.

Kelly denies all the accusations against him.
