Valencia Love, the woman who posted R. Kelly's $100K Bond, reportedly got the money from a wrongful death lawsuit settlement she received after the death of her daughter.


A family member, who chose to remain anonymous, recently spoke to Dailymail.com with more details about Love.

The family member revealed that although it was shocking to learn that Love had paid Kelly’s bond, the money, $100,000, was probably not a problem for the business owner who got a seven-figure settlement from the lawsuit she filed against the hospital that was treating her young daughter when she passed away in 2010.


The “Happy People” singer’s sexual behavior came into question again after the premiere of Lifetime’s 'Surviving R. Kelly.'"

Besides posting bond for a man she met only months ago, Love owns a daycare center and restaurant purchased with the money from the settlement.

According to records obtained by DailyMail.com, she also paid $350,000 for a property in a Romeoville tract housing development back in September.


Two years before getting the big settlement, Love had reportedly filed for bankruptcy and was not in the best place financially.

She met Kelly, 52, last September on a local cruise around Lake Michigan, claims the family member. Love, apparently, had always been a fan of the "Bump N' Grind" singer but became obsessed after meeting him.

Kelly appeared in court on Monday for a bail hearing on the ten counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse he faces at the moment.


After the judge set the singer’s bond at $1 million, his lawyer, Steven Greenberg, revealed that his client "really doesn't have any money at this point" due to "mismanagement," "hangers-on" and "bad deals." Kelly needed to produce ten percent of the bond, which comes to $100,000.

"He's trying to get it together," Greenberg added. "He doesn't have it sitting in the bank."

Hours later, Love came forward and posted the Grammy winner’s bond.


Following an explosive Lifetime docuseries detailing Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse of multiple women, including minors, he was charged last Friday with a total of 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse towards four women.

Three of those women were minors at the time the alleged abuse took place. The latest charges came one week after a rape tape emerged allegedly featuring Kelly and a minor.

Kelly was previously acquitted in a child pornography trial back in 2008, but the “Happy People” singer’s sexual behavior came into question again after the premiere of Lifetime’s “Surviving R. Kelly.”


The six-part series featured several women, including his ex-wife Andrea Kelly, detailing the alleged physical and sexual abuse they suffered at his hands.

Kelly, whose birth name is Robert Kelly, is pleading not guilty to all the charges brought against him and his next court appearance is scheduled for March 22.
