R. Kelly leaves Chicago jail after child support payment is made
(CBSNEWS) -- R. Kelly was released from a Chicago jail on Saturday after someone paid $161,000 in back child support for him, officials said. Cook County sheriff's spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said she did not know who made the payment.
It came three days after a judge ordered Kelly jailed until he paid the total amount he owed by that date. Kelly briefly spoke to reporters after his release. "I promise, we will straighten this out," he said. "That is all I can say right now."
Kelly spent a weekend in jail after his arrest last month and wasn't freed until a 47-year-old suburban Chicago business owner posted his $100,000 bail.
