R. Kelly back in court for child support case
CHICAGO — R. Kelly was back in court Wednesday for the child support problems that landed him in jail last week.
Kelly arrived at the Richard J. Daley Center around 9:30 a.m. His ex-wife was also at the hearing.
The singer was recently released from jail after he failed to pay more than $160,000 in back child support. Kelly’s publicist says the child support payments should be reduced because he currently doesn’t have a job.
The payments were not reduced Wednesday, and another hearing is scheduled for May.
On Tuesday night, the singer was seen talking with his lawyers and others outside Trump Tower.
Police were called to Trump Tower earlier Tuesday, for a matter related to Kelly that turned out to be a false alarm. Kelly’s publicist says there was a meeting with his legal team.
In addition to child support issues, R. Kelly is also charged with sexually abusing four victims.
He has pleaded not guilty.
