R. Kelly’s money problems aren’t going anywhere — and from all indications, they’re getting worse.
The Blast reports that $150,000 was seized from the singer’s Wintrust Bank account. One of his accounts was $13 in the negative, while $154,000 was seized from two other accounts to satisfy the debt to a former landlord. According to account statements, that leaves Kells with just $625 in the bank!!!!
During an interview with Gayle King last month, he claimed he had $350,000 in his bank account.
In other R. Kelly news, TMZ reports that federal prosecutors in Illinois are closing in on Kells in a sex-trafficking investigation.
Jim Jones managed to stay out of jail in a Coweta County, Georgia gun and drug case.
The Dipset rapper reached a plea deal with prosecutors, receiving two years probation and a $1,500 fine. He was originally facing five felony counts and a misdemeanor.
In the end, one felony drug charge and two felony counts of possession of a firearm were dropped. If he stays sober for the entire probation term, the other three charges will be dropped from his record. (TMZ)
