The child payment issue by R. Kelly seems to stem from him wanting to control a narrative according this his ex wife Drea. He was holding back payments to make her stop speaking about his abusive behavior. She said Kelly would make partial and sometimes full payments, but mostly he wouldn’t pay anything at all. This seems to have been resolved.
TMZ now reports that Kelly has been released from jail after receiving help from a “benefactor” to get the $160K needed to pay up to his ex-wife.
