He says he might be holding a couple of drinks in his hand, all he’ll be doing is just chilling cause it’s a party. Therefore the media should please take it easy on him cause, according to him, this is how he gets paid.
Kelly is struggling to pay child support to his ex-wife, Drea Kelly. He was jailed briefly for the delinquency but released after a friend ponied up the dough.

The Cook County State’s Attorney is in possession of additional videos that allegedly show R. Kelly having sex with at least one underage girl.
