R Kelly gets released from jail after settling $161,000 child support debt

The 52-year-old musician was let go from jail early in the morning on Saturday, March 9, 2019, says a report by CNN.

Some reporters were positioned outside the Chicago's Cook County Jail as he got released for the second occasion within a month and he reportedly told them his challenges would soon go away.

"I promise you, we're going to straighten all this stuff out. That's all I can say right now. I promise you," CNN gathered in a statement the singer made.

Being the subject of a boycott movement that has affected his income off music, finance has not been bright for R Kelly but a judge insisted three days before he got out of jail that he must pay all the monies owed to his ex and children, when he had offered to pay only $60,000.

According to Steve Greenberg who is his lawyer, his client is expected back in court on Wednesday, March 13, in respect to the child support case.

After this there is another court date 9 days later for the allegation of sexual abuse of underage girls.
