R. Kelly Facing Six Months In Jail

By Nadia Noir

Whether he’s guilty or not (that’s up to the courts to decide), R. Kelly has a lot of problems with children in his life. According to the New York Post, now the singer is dealing with missed child support and could spend six months in jail.

His ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, issued legal documents saying the singer owed her $20,833 in children support despite already paying $100,000 in back child support before. Kelly’s arrest comes on the heels of missing a court date in November. A source said that his lawyer is “worried the judge could lock Kelly up if he doesn’t show this time, but he can’t reach his client.”

Allegedly, the Grammy winner hasn’t paid his lawyer, has tons of debt, and is hiding away.

“There’s a line of people Kelly owes money to who worked really hard on his last album,” said another source. “Who knows what Kelly and Devyne are doing, but burying your head in the sand isn’t the answer.”
