R. Kelly is a free man again, but he’ll have to pay off a 6-figure child support tab immediately if he wants to avoid getting tossed back in jail.
Kelly’s $100k bond — 10% of his $1 million bail — was finally posted Monday after he appeared in court and entered a not guilty to plea to all 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. He then walked out of jail, wearing his blue down coat.
Sources in Kelly’s camp tell us he paid the bond with a bank cashier’s check … so, there won’t be any issues with his check clearing.
Although he’s getting released from jail, Kelly’s staring down another deadline. TMZ broke the story … he has to pay about $160k in back child support to his ex-wife, Drea Kelly, by March 6. If he doesn’t … it’s right back to County lockup.
Sources in Kelly’s camp tell us he plans to make arrangements immediately to pay the child support, so he can focus on his criminal defense.
It’s possible he could be facing additional charges after attorney Michael Avenatti dropped an additional bombshell — a NEW tape showing Kelly having sex with the same 14-year-old girl from the other tape. Avenatti has now turned over both tapes to Cook County prosecutors.
