R. Kelly Arrested For Second Time Following TV Interview With Gayle King

He was reportedly taken into custody for unpaid child support.

R. Kelly was arrested for a second time in two weeks on Wednesday, March 6. The R&B star was taken into custody for unpaid child support, reports.

The singer was in court for a custody hearing when he was arrested. He is accused of failing to pay $160,000 in child support. A Cook County spokesperson said, ““He will be transferred to jail at some point today.”

Back on February 22, R. Kelly was arrested and charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. He bonded out of jail and pled not guilty. He then taped an interview with Gayle King that aired on CBS This Morning the same day he was arrested for the second time.

In the interview, the singer maintained his innocence and said it would be “stupid” of him to hold women hostage in his house. He also shot down the claims made against him in the documentary Surviving R. Kelly, where women accused of him sexually assaulting them.
