R. Kelly arrested for unpaid child support after interview denying sex charges

According to court documents reviewed by CNN last month, Kelly owed more than $169,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife as of February 6. The Cook County Sheriff's Office revealed that Kelly will have to pay the full amount before he can be released from jail.

Despite all this, it sounds like Kelly's main defense, [which is just him incriminating himself more, to be honest, ] is that her parents "sold" her to him!

Kelly's publicist, Darryll Johnson, said Kelly came to the hearing prepared to pay $50,000 to $60,000, but the judge wanted the whole amount. "I've told you millions and millions of times where I am, and I am very happy", she said. His next court date is March 13.

Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary's talk with King was teased on Wednesday morning, with the clip showing the ladies visibly distraught while being questioned about their relationship with Kelly.

Kelly vehemently denied the charges in an interview that aired Wednesday morning on CBS This Morning. Through their lawyer, Michael Avenatti, the Clarys stated: "We never received a penny from R. Kelly".

Kelly was charged last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse and has pleaded not guilty. His attorney said at the time that Kelly's finances were "a mess".

"I'm just telling the truth", he replied. "People. There are older men that like younger women ... there are younger women that like older men".

Kelly, who didn't say anything audible, pulled off the shades as he walked into Judge Lori Rosen's courtroom on the lower level of the Daley Center.

The 52-year-old singer will remain in custody, Ansari added, until he pays what he owes - $161,633.

Kelly's representatives say he is having financial difficulties, despite an award-winning career that once produced hits such as "I Believe I Can Fly".

On Wednesday's broadcast, Kelly's emotions swung wildly as he explained he was simply someone with a "big heart" who was betrayed by liars who hoped to cash in.

However, police say they have not yet spoken with the woman.

R. Kelly's live-in girlfriends are here to tell you they're NOT brainwashed sex cult victims - and everyone who thinks otherwise is "ignorant"! "You guys are believing some f-cking facade that our parents are saying", said Clary in tears with Savage next to her.

In the latest charges, prosecutors allege Kelly tried to force oral sex on his 24-year-old hairdresser in 2003 - while he was free on bond on the then-pending child pornography charges.

In his explosive new interview with Gayle King, R. Kelly was very vocal about wanting a better relationship with his kids, all while he owes a whopping child support tab of almost $200,000.
