(AllHipHop News) R. Kelly was recently released from the Cook County Jail, where he was locked up over failure to pay $161,000 in back child support owed to his ex-wife, Drea Kelly.
R. Kelly was freed from prison earlier this afternoon, after an unknown donor put up the money, after a judge sent him to jail on March 6, until he paid the full amount in arrears.
The singer promised to "straighten" everything out, as one fan flirted with the singer, while another yelled out "Hallelujah" after R. Kelly spoke.
R. Kelly explained his dismal financial situation during an 80-minute interview with Gayle King, which started airing on "CBS This Morning" earlier this week and thus, the need for a donor.
"So many people have been stealing my money. People were connected to my account," R. Kelly claimed. "I went by myself for the first time to Bank of America. Didn't know what I was doing. Didn't know what the hell was going on...because I was so tired of not knowing where my money was, what my publishing is."
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.
A federal investigation has also been launched over several new sex tapes which allegedly feature R. Kelly having sex with girls as young as 14-years-old.
