R. Kelly has been sent back to jail.
After being mocked online today about his an aggressive interview with Gayle King on “CBS This Morning,” R. Kelly was arrested and taken into custody. He is in Chicago jail after a hearing over unpaid child support. The Cook County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Wednesday after breaking the story to USA TODAY.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sam Randall states R. Kelly will be transferred to the county jail. It will be his residence until he pays what he owes. His next court date in the matter was set for March 13.
Kelly owes $161,000 in back child support. Failure to pay child support in any amount over $20,000 is a felony under Illinois law.
