R Kelly released from jail after mystery child support payment

Attorney Steve Greenberg said it is "open season on R. Kelly" in regard to the backlash Kelly has received.

"I promise you, we're going to straighten all this stuff out".

R&B singer R Kelly has walked out of a Chicago jail after a 161,000 U.S. dollar (£124,000) child support payment was made on his behalf.

The indictment accuses Kelly of sexual acts with three children older than 13 but younger than 17; there is no age range listed for one alleged victim.

In a recent appearance on "CBS This Morning", Kelly broke down and said he was "fighting for his f-king life" in an interview about the sexual abuse charges.

"I have been assassinated".

Although he is free, R. Kelly still faces 10 felony counts of sexual abuse of three minors and another woman who says he forced her to have oral sex against her will.

Greenberg declined to say how much Kelly posted Saturday to walk out of jail.

Later in the interview, when asked about owing back child support, the singer admitted he was struggling financially. "Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way way past, to hold somebody, let alone 4, 5, 6, 50, you said - why - how stupid would I be to do that?!" If my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can't work? "[But] they're pressured [not to see him], and I get it". I'm trying to have a relationship with my kids and I can't do it!

The singer added that his fortune had dwindled over the years but insisted it wasn't from paying settlements to accusers. "People were connected to my account", R. Kelly claimed. "He paid it religiously until he couldn't make any more money because of all of these statements that are being made and all of the rumors and all of the innuendo and, frankly, because of the charges".

Kelly told King he always left the handling of his finances to others. I went into - I went by myself for the first time to a Bank of America.
