R. Kelly was arrested for unpaid child support on March 6, 2019. USA Today reports that Kelly failed to pay $161,000 in back child support for his sons Robert Jr. and Jay, in addition to college tuition for his daughter Joann. Kelly handed over a check two months after he was arrested and jailed for failing to make the required payments.

The check amounted to $62, 499, but Kelly’s ex-wife Andrea is still seeking out $32,383 in back child support remaining from the $161,000 that the judge ordered Kelly to pay. The documents pertaining to the case were initially scheduled to be made public, but Kelly’s lawyer objected, arguing that Kelly’s sons were minors (Robert Jr. was 16 at the time) and thus deserved to be protected from the information found in the documents.

“My client now looks forward to clearing his name and being cleared of all charges in the near future,” said Kelly’s representative Darrell Johnson. “Mr. Kelly also placed a check for child support in escrow with his family law attorney for June, July and August in advance.”

The only consistent social media presence he has is on his mother’s profile. He often poses for photos with his family, with the most recent example being on December 2, 2019. “When FATHER GOD, MOTHER EARTH and QUEEN UNIVERSE are at work,” Andrea wrote in the caption. “Big things coming soon this is DOPE-DOPE and the heirs to the throne.”
