Cook County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari reported that Kelly was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon after a hearing on his child support debt. His hands weren't cuffed. The Cook County Sheriff's Office revealed that Kelly will have to pay the full amount before he can be released from jail.
R. Kelly has been arrested, yet again, this time, for failing to pay over $161k in child support. He spent a weekend in jail before someone posted his $100,000 bail. The money was put forth by a female fan who met him on a Lake Michigan cruise last fall.
The parents of 23-year-old Savage said at a news conference on Wednesday they had not seen their daughter in person for two years.
If convicted, Kelly faces three to seven years in prison for each count.

CBS says King also spoke directly to both Savage and Clary and will air conversations with them on Friday morning.

"This is not me", he said, adding that he is "fighting for my life". Darrell Johnson, who said he is an R. Kelly publicist, confirmed to reporters Kelly was taken into custody over the child support issue. Their lawyer, Gerald Griggs, said that "at no point" did his clients meet with, request or receive money from the R&B star. He denies doing anything against their will.

"We have never received a penny from R. Kelly".
Kelly, who is out on bail following his February 22 arrest in Chicago, said earlier in the interview that he had done "lots of things wrong" in relationships with women, but said he has apologized. He states that the two girls he's accused of brainwashing and holding in his alleged sex cult... were handed over to him by their parents who wanted fame.
CBS said it interviewed Kelly for 80 minutes.
In the latest charges, prosecutors allege Kelly tried to force oral sex on his 24-year-old hairdresser in 2003 - while he was free on bond on the then-pending child pornography charges.
