R Kelly back in jail in child support case

A Cook County, Illinois judge said that Kelly must pay the $161,000 in full in order to be released.

The singer, whose real name is Robert Kelly, appeared at a hearing about the case on Wednesday afternoon and was then taken into police custody, E! Kelly's next hearing in the child support case is on March 13 and his next court date on the sex abuse charges is March 22.

A lawyer for the couple bristled at the allegation, saying Timothy and Jonjelyn Savage never asked for or received money from Kelly.

In an emotionally charged interview with Gayle King that aired Wednesday on CBS This Morning, the singer grew increasingly agitated, eventually looking directly into the camera, yelling and standing up out of his chair.

When a reporter asked Johnson how Kelly was feeling about going back to jail, he replied, "Depressed, deflated, upset".

Kelly is now out on bond after pleading not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse last month.

Bond was set at $1 million on the criminal charges, but Kelly was unable to post the necessary $100,000 until after he spent a weekend in custody.

Kelly, one of the best-selling music artists of all time, told Gayle King of "CBS This Morning" that he never sexually abused women or controlled their lives. "You all just don't want to believe it". "What kind of love is it that keeps these young women away from their families?" He says Kelly didn't have the whole amount because he hasn't been able to work.

CBS also plans to air interviews with two women who are now living with Kelly, including one whose parents say she is being held against her will. Cook County prosecutors charged him in 2002 with child pornography, saying he made a sex tape with his teenage goddaughter, but a jury acquitted him in a sensational trial in 2008. He has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse.

The woman told investigators that she was visiting her mother in MI at the time and was introduced to the singer by a friend who also happened to be Kelly's assistant.

At the time, Azriel's parents claim that they only hoped she would become his protégé and Kelly would help their daughter's career. R. Kelly was abusive to me - emotionally and physically and verbally.

Kelly has been associated with accusations of abuse, manipulation and inappropriate encounters with girls and young women for more than two decades.
