Rents Past Due for R. Kelley, Judge orders Sony to give .5 million in royalties to former landlord

There is a line of people trying to get paid off of whatever R. Kelly has left. Today a Judge ordered that his former landlord is entitled to monies he has coming from his record label in music royalties  estimated at 1.5 million, to be turned over to the Wisconsin-based property management company who secured a $3.5 million judgment against the singer earlier this year. The money will  cover unpaid rent and repair costs at the studio space at 219 N. Justine St.

Kelly has sold over 75 million records worldwide, making him the most successful R&B male artist of the 1990s and one of the world’s best-selling music artists.He is the 55th best-selling music artist in the United States, with over 32 million album sales. Kelly was named by Billboard as the Top R&B/Hip Hop Artist between 1985-2010 and the most successful R&B artist in history.

Since the 1990s, Kelly has been the subject of numerous allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct, often with underage girls, all charges he denies. In 2002, he was indicted on 13 counts of child pornography, but was acquitted of all charges in 2008. In January 2019, a widely viewed Lifetime docuseries titled Surviving R. Kelly detailed allegations of sexual abuse by multiple women, allegations Kelly denies. Facing pressure from the public using the Mute R. Kelly hashtag, RCA Records dropped Kelly. On February 22, 2019, Kelly was indicted on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. On July 11, 2019, Kelly was arrested on federal charges alleging sex crimes, human trafficking, child pornography, racketeering, and obstruction of justice.
