R. Kelly is now safe from having to stay in jail for unpaid child support fees that amounted to more than $32,000. Thanks to some of the money he's raked in from royalties, he won't have to worry about any unpaid fees until next month's payment is up. 


According to his attorney, Steven Greenberg, his client managed to collect the money he owes his children, and he "doesn't owe one more single solitary," until next month's $21,000 payment is due. 


Fishing for money

That's another problem that R. Kelly might need to face, as he's been struggling to find places to get money from. Unfortunately for him, even the money he's been getting from royalties has been depleted, especially since a lot of people are fully aware of the issues he currently faces. 


However, his crisis manager Darrell Johnson assures everyone that the singer has been trying to book more gigs in the near future for him to be able to pay off everything that needs payments. 

Problems after Problems

Back in March, Kelly was arrested due to his unpaid child support fees, just two weeks after he posted bail for his charges on sexual abuse. The 52-year-old already had 10-count felony charges against him, and his failure to pay off his child support dues just made things worse for him. 


At the time, his ex-wife Drea Kelly filed a claim after he neglected his duty to pay for child support that reached a whopping amount of $200,000. He was then ordered to settle the minimum amount of $161,633 to avoid jail time by March 6, but he was unable to do so which led to his arrest. 

Now that he's slowly been raking in money to pay for his child support among many other fees he has to pay for, R. Kelly can live to see another day without having to worry about paying the bills yet.
