For the last two days people have been wondering how R Kelly of all people wasn’t able to post his bond, especially when it was the same as Jussie Smollett. Well we laid out how he doesn’t have much money these days for the very reason he’s in court now. All these years of litigation have cut into his pockets severly… and so much so he’s only worth $1 million instead of the $200 million or so he honestly should be worth.

He’s now being released from the Cook County Jail and has already left after a wealthy undisclosed friend of his paid his $100,000 bond after it was reported he was struggling with ponying up the money. That’s the advantage of being R Kelly. His name might be mud these days but he still has his name and apparently it’s good enough to get a friend to bail him out of jail.

Coincidentally, at the same time it was announced he would be getting out of prison soon, Gloria Allred announced in a news conference that she’s representing another 6 women who all claim he assaulted them. R Kelly’s next court date is March 22nd. He will have 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against 4 women to work on fighting between now and then. Then there’s the additional sex tape Michael Avenatti claims he has of R Kelly he’ll have to fight and whatever charges may come with that. Updates will be given as they come.
