The R & B icon is currently on bail after being charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual assault in February. He pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and was released after paying his bail of $ 100,000.
In the midst of all these accusations, the singer’s financial difficulties continue to worsen. In addition to having $ 160,000 in child support (which was paid with the help of a friend), R. Kelly was reportedly sued by the owner of his Chicago studio for a rent arrears of 200 $ 000.
The court ordered the singer to pay $ 173,000 to the owner of his studio, prompting Kelly’s creditor, Midwest Commercial Funding, to seize some of his various bank accounts and issue subpoenas to Sony. , the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers.
As a direct result of subpoenas, several sources indicate that R. Kelly’s account at Wintrust Bank currently has a balance of less than $ 13. The Blast also claims that assets of some $ 150,000 were taken from its Bank of America, leaving only $ 625 in both accounts.
R. Kelly would have earned $ 22,000 after performing at an American nightclub earlier this month.
Last month, the star’s former hairdresser publicly accused her of sexual abuse for the first time, claiming she had her DNA on her shirt as evidence.
Lanita Carter is one of the last women to accuse the singer of sexual assault. He allegedly assaulted her 15 years ago, when she was only 24 years old.
Kelly’s allegations of sexual misconduct resurfaced after the documentary “Surviving R Kelly” was released.
