R Kelly pays Child Support in advance

Popular American multiple Grammy Award Winner, Robert Sylvester Kelly popularly known as R Kelly has paid his child support two months in advance.

Kelly’s manager Darrell Johnson told TMZ that Kelly’s family attorney, Lisa Damico appeared in Chicago Court and paid $41,666 to cover June and July child support to his ex-wife Andrea Lee.

Kelly wants to avoid another scare.

However, no decision was made on the $32,000 Kelly still owes in interest on back child support.

At no point in the foreseen future do we see paying interest of child support. As of May 14 2019, Mr. Kelly is up to date on support payments, Johnson said.

Earlier, it was reported that the father of three avoided another trip to the slammer earlier this month after appearing in court and paying all of the back child support ($62,000) he owed Lee.

The 52 year-old born Chicago rapper turn singer, song writer, and record producer has owed $20,833 since January 2009.

Also, on March 6, 2019, Kelly was taken back to the Cook County Jail after failing to pay $161,633 in child support.

On March 9, 2019, he was released after someone, who didn’t want to be identified, paid off the child support.

His lawyer said he couldn’t discuss the payment due to a Gag Order.

Kelly and Lee

Kelly married Lee in 1996. She was his former backup dancer and mother of his three children (Jay, Joann and Robert Kelly Jr.)

In 1997, he built a house in Olympia Fields, a village in Cook County, Illinois and moved in.

Lee filed a restraining order against Kelly in September 2005 after a physical altercation and later filed for divorce in 2006.

His Olympia Fields house became the subject of a foreclosure lawsuit in 2011, and has since been bought by Rudolph Isley.

R Kelly is also facing a 10 count charge of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving underage girls.
