R. Kelly goes from ‘Pied Piper’ of R&B to ‘dead-beat’ dad

The payment from the mystery benefactor comes three days after a judge ordered him to go back to jail until the child support issue was settled.

In a viral video of the phone call, she can be heard saying: "I have told you guys a million, million times that I am OK where I am and I'm happy, so I just want to let you know that".

The singer's recent legal troubles have highlighted the fact that his finances are now "a mess", and he even claimed in a recent CBS interview that someone had been stealing from his bank accounts.

Last month, Kelly was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse - a class 2 felony - involving four alleged victims.

He has pleaded not guilty and denies any wrongdoing.

However, Joycelyn, who lives with Kelly along with his other girlfriend, 21-year-old Azriel Clary, told King in a separate interview that she loves the rapper. "I'm a man. I make mistakes, but I'm not a devil and by no means am I monster".

R. Kelly, a musician known for his hits such as "I Believe I Can Fly" and "Ignition (Remix)", has not-so-recently been accused of sexual abuse - mainly, engaging in sexual relationships with minors.

"He was very much aware of what he was doing, but I also thought that on some level, we were watching someone who really needed help, and needed help right away". Should I go in and stop it?' He's having a dialogue with people on my team. In the wake of the #MeToo movement, and especially after the conviction of long-time abuser Bill Cosby, Kelly must see the writing on the wall; the similarities between Cosby's and Kelly's open-secret of being long-time sexual predators with decades of mostly dismissed accusations is too significant to ignore.

"We sincerely apologize to Aretha Franklin's family and friends", a statement said.

King talked to longtime BFF Oprah Winfrey's magazine about the experience and said she was not afraid. "I'm fighting for my f-king life!" he said directly into the camera. Starts with a Q, ' Thompson's Kelly says before Jones" King replies: "'Big macs?' "I told you a million times I'm happy where I am, '" Jonjelyn Savage said.

The Fox News co-hosts were talking about Kelly's emotional outburst during his sit-down interview with King.

As far as whether or not King ever felt threatened, King finally addresses her thoughts and feelings during Kelly's aggressive reaction mid-way through the interview.

Joycelyn Savage also cast blame on her parents in the CBS interview.

Then, while yelling and crying, he explains why he wouldn't have committed the heinous crimes he's accused of: "How stupid would it be for me, R. Kelly, with all the insane, illegal things I've done in my past, on tape, and gotten away with, scot-free, to do it again?".

"I had some reservations because I was thinking 'What are we gonna get?" Throughout it, Kelly sort of speak-sings the story, generally in the same melody - though calling it such is a bit of a stretch.

The show came hours after Kelly was released from jail when an anonymous donor paid the $181,000 he owed in child support.

However, he did concede that a lot of the- not knowing his own financial status -was due to his own fault, admitting to King that "a lot of it's on me".
