R. Kelly Can't Pay Child Support Because "People Have Been Stealing My Money"

March 7, 2019

Less money, mo' problems! That's what R. Kelly is up against after he was thrown back into jail this week over $160,000 in unpaid child support. Coincidentally, CBS This Morning aired more of Gayle King's sitdown with the R&B star on Thursday, in which Kelly claims he can't afford child support because his associates have robbed him blind. "Here's the deal. So many people have been stealing my money. People was connected to my account," Kelly tells King. "I went by myself for the first time [recently> to Bank of America....because I was so tired of not knowing where my money was." He also lashed out by asking, "How can I pay child support? How? If my ex-wife is destroying my name and I can't work? How can I work? How can I get paid? How can I take care of my kids? How?"
