R. Kelly back in custody for failing to pay child support

R. Kelly gave a tense interview to CBS This Morning at one point standing and shouting tearful denials at the cameras and at anchor Gayle King

Kelly was just taken back into custody for unpaid back child support today and won't be released until he pays about $161,000.

The new arrest also comes hours after an explosive CBS This Morning interview aired in which Kelly denied the sexual abuse allegations made against him, losing it in the middle of his conversation with co-host Gayle King.

The singer is due back in court for the child support case on March 13 at 9:30 a.m. ET.

A spokesperson for the Cook County Sheriff's office did not immediately say why he was arrested, and whether it was because he failed to pay the child support he owes. Judge Lori Rosen on February 6 ordered Kelly be jailed unless he paid the bulk of the $194,000 he owed for child support, accrued interest, and educational expenses.

Now that each family has been cut out, Kelly claimed, they're speaking out against him because they want money from him. The singer spent three nights in jail before a suburban woman - a fan who met him on a Lake Michigan cruise in the fall - put up the $100,000.

At one point during the interview, Kelly angrily stands up and starts pacing, his voice breaking as he yells, "I didn't to this stuff!"

Johnson said Kelly was "depressed, deflated, [and] upset" upon being sent to jail. Despite her parents' allegations that R. Kelly has brainwashed her, the aspiring singer told TMZ in July 2017, "I'm 21..."

- R. Kelly's day began with a nationally televised broadcast in which he whispered, cried and ranted while pleading with viewers to believe him: He'd never had sex with anyone under 17 and never held anyone against her will.

He has pleaded not guilty to 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. He said he never sexually abused women or controlled their lives.

A 23-year-old woman described by R. Kelly as one of his girlfriends has told her family that she is "happy" with the embattled R&B artist.

Kelly left the courtroom with his lawyers through a different door than he entered.

When asked if he likes younger women, he replied, "I'm a older man that love all women".

And the "Ignition" singer insisted all his accusers and their families are lying and blamed the "power" of social media for destroying his reputation.

KELLY: That's stupid! Use your common sense. Jonjelyn asked. "Mommy loves you".

"I don't need to". During his interview on "CBS This Morning", he became quite emotional when talking about his children.

In Kelly's case, he and his attorney might have decided they had nothing to lose after the Lifetime series, said Fred Thiagarajah, a prominent Newport Beach, California, attorney and former prosecutor.
