U.S. singer R Kelly released from prison

The Chicago Sun-Times said Kelly spent three nights behind bars after he was hit with a civil contempt charge when his ex-wife Drea Kelly complained that he missed more than eight months of payments to support his three children. "Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way way past, to hold somebody, let alone 4, 5, 6, 50, you said - why - how stupid would I be to do that?!"

R. Kelly walked out of a Chicago jail on Saturday after someone who officials say did not want to be publicly identified paid $161,633 that the R&B singer owed in back child support.

The singer was taken into custody during a hearing over the child support on Wednesday. The singer - whose emotional interview with CBS journalist Gayle King earlier this week was partially about his estranged relationship with his three children - went into police custody on Wednesday.

The news came three days after a judge ordered Kelly jailed until he paid the total amount he owed by that date.

Despite the resignations of Wilson-Raybould and Philpott, he said the disagreement was normal and healthy in a democratic system. For a while, they appeared to thrive in the super-heated, high-pressure world of federal politics, until they didn't.

At the jail where Kelly was released on Saturday after $161,000 was posted in back child support, Steve Greenberg says there have been so many wild statements about the allegations but, "We haven't seen one piece of evidence". "I promise, we will straighten this out". If Kelly doesn't settle up with the court by then, he can be hauled off to jail. He turned himself in on February 22 after being charged in Cook County, Illinois, with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The Gayle King Interview with R. Kelly is now available to watching on CBS All Access.

Of course, even though he's free from jail today, it's FAR from the end for Kelly in court; the singer is still facing a whopping ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse in Chicago, and other sexual misconduct allegations are triggering investigations elsewhere right now, too.

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing and has pleaded not guilty to the charges. How can I take care of my kids? She did not know who had made the payment.
