R. Kelly was released from jail in Chicago on March 9 after paying the $161,000 he owed in back child support to his ex-wife Andrea Kelly. According to my insider, Valencia Love, the Chicago businesswoman who paid the embattled entertainer’s original $100,000 bail, also coordinated the child support payment. The funds included money from two of Kelly’s friends, as well as several checks that he received that cleared on March 8.

He does not know how the tapes came to be in his possession.
