On February 25, R&B singer R Kelly was released from Cook County Jail after spending three nights incarcerated.

R KELLY SPENT THREE DAYS IN JAIL WITH NO MONEY FOR BAIL

The singer who once boasted a net worth of over $300 million, had to endure a three-day wait in jail while friends and family scrounged up the 10% bail money to set him free.

R Kelly exited the jail wearing the same outfit in which he'd appeared in court on the previous Friday: a black hoodie and pants, a blue jacket and white shoes with no laces. The R&B star immediately headed for McDonald's for a hamburger, obviously tired of prison fare.

THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME HE FACES CRIMINAL CHARGES

In 2008, R Kelly had been accused of child pornography after a video which appeared to show the singer having sex and urinating on a teenage girl was circulated.

R KELLY SURRENDERED HIS PASSPORT TO THE COURT

In order to effect his release, R Kelly had to surrender his passport. The presiding Judge, John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr, imposed a $250,000 bond for each of the 4 victims that form the basis of the accusations against the R&B singer.
