Last week, it was reported that R. Kelly was finally taken into custody and charged with 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse. Kelly’s bond has been set at $1 million in which he only needs $100,000 to be released yet he is having trouble coming up with said amount of funds. Believe it or not, Kelly has been struggling financially for the past few years and has actually admitted his financial struggles in the past. Kelly explained that he continues to tour the world because show money is his most significant means of living.
In short, Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, explained that Kelly’s finances are in a mess due to him being dropped by his record label and owing back child support. Nonetheless, Greenberg still assumes Kelly will come up with his bond money sooner than later.
