R & B singer R. Kelly is coming out of the Chicago prison after he has paid child allowance he owed.

The US R&B singer R. Kelly, who was imprisoned the other day, has now paid $ 161,000 in child allowance.

Or rather, someone has paid the baby money for him, says Sophia Ansari, spokeswoman for the sheriff in Cook County at Chicago.

The $ 161,000 equals about one million dollars, and the payment has therefore opened the way for him to be released on Saturday, Ansari says.

She does not know who has paid the money.

Owed the ex-wife money

The payment comes, three days after a judge ordered the superstar prison because of the lack of child allowance.

R. Kelly has three children with his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, and the judge decided that R. Kelly could only be released when the full amount owed $ 161,000 was paid.

When the judge decided that Kelly should be jailed, on March 13 he set the date for the next meeting of the case.

Accused of sexual abuse

However, R. Kelly also has another matter to think about. In February, he was charged with sexually assaulting four women.

Three of them he must have abused in the period from 1998 to 2010, when they were under 17, Reuters writes.

The singer has rejected the charges and says he has done nothing wrong.

This case has also meant that he has been in custody. Paying a $ 100,000 bail got him out of jail on February 26 after three days.

The next hearing in the case of sexual assault is March 22.
