Part of R. Kelly’s money troubles stem from his failure to pay child support, according to court documents reviewed by CNN,
Kelly owed more than $169,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife as of February 6.The court ordered Kelly to make a monthly payment of $20,833 on January 8, 2009, but Kelly failed to show up to that hearing, per court documents. To avoid being held in contempt of court, a judge ordered he pay $161,663 by March 6.Greenberg told CNN his client “does not have to pay the child support before getting out.”“The state is trying to make him do that, or they were,” Greenberg said, “but the judge said no.”
