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.
