  • R Kelly has been detained for non-payment of child support

The "I Believe I Can Fly" singer reportedly owes $161,000 in back child support, according to state offices, CNN reported. Why would I hold all these women! She added, "I'm happy where I'm at and everything is OK with me".

One recent example was "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett, who was charged with falsely reporting a racist, anti-gay attack in Chicago.

"CBS This Morning" on Wednesday broadcast Kelly's first interview since he was charged with sexually abusing four people, including three underage girls. Andrea Kelly was not at the hearing and her attorney declined to comment. "I understand that", she said. If the evidence against him is overwhelming, "this kind of interview might be kind of a Hail Mary" to influence a potential jury pool.

Records connected to Kelly's divorce case have been kept secret and out of public view. "He may not know all the evidence against him".

CHICAGO, IL - MARCH 06: Singer R. Kelly arrives at the Daley Center for his hearing on March 6, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. His defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, followed soon after. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. "Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me", Kelly said.

At one point during the interview, Kelly angrily stood up and started pacing, his voice breaking as he yelled: "I didn't do this stuff! This is not me!" "I'm fighting for my f****** life".

"Thirty years of my career!"

"Y'all trying to kill me!" he screamed.

‘They Wanted Me To!’: R. Kelly Claims Parents Wanted Him to Have Sex with Teen Daughter

"I'm just telling the truth", he replied. Kelly was in court after failing to pay more than $160,000 in child support.

"All of them are lying", Kelly said "I have been assassinated".

Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari reported that Kelly was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon after a hearing on his child support debt. He spent a weekend in jail before someone posted his $100,000 bail.

CBS News National Correspondent Jericka Duncan said on "CBS Evening News" Tuesday the entire interview was about an hour and 20 minutes long. The network says it will air more from the interview on Thursday and Friday. After the interview, one of the young women who now lives with Kelly spoke with her family for the first time in years. Why would you take your daughter - if I'm going to take my daughter and she's 19 years old to a 49-year-old icon, whatever, celebrity or R. Kelly concert or whoever it is, I'm not going to put her on the stage and leave her.

The alleged victim, who is now 30, has claimed R. Kelly lured her to his Detroit hotel room for sex when she was just 13 years old in December 2001.

However, a family in Georgia said they haven't been in contact with their daughter for two years.

The young woman also said she stopped speaking to her parents because they've been causing "problems in her life" by saying Kelly is keeping her hostage. The songwriter said he believes social media is to blame for fueling the allegations.
