“I promise you, we’re going to straighten all this stuff out.”
R Kelly has been released from jail after the child support he owes was paid.
The singer was released from jail in Chicago on Saturday after someone paid 161,100 US dollars owed on his behalf, Sheriff’s spokeswoman Sophia Ansari Said.
Ms Ansari said she did not know who made the payment.
It came three days after a judge ordered Kelly to be jailed until he paid the total amount he owed in full.
Kelly was charged last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse pertaining to four women, including three who were minors when the alleged abused occurred.
