"When we get those things, we're going to fight this case like we fight any other case, in the courtroom, based on the evidence", he said.

A Cook County sheriff's spokesperson confirmed that "someone" paid the outstanding amount for him, but that she did not know the person's identity.

She did not know who made the payment.

"If you really look at that documentary, which I'm sure you have, everybody says something bad about me".

A Chicago judge had issued an order stating the "I Believe I Can Fly" singer will head back to jail if he doesn't pay Dollars 161,663, which he owes his ex-wife Andrea Kelly.

The latest stint in jail came shortly after an explosive interview with CBS This Morning, his first since his arrest in February on the aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges.

Kelly was released from a Chicago jail.

Kelly had been locked up in Cook County, Illinois, since Wednesday.

Kelly, one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, has been dogged for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves.

The ball moves so unusual and it looks like it goes to David's left and it changed direction", he said. The victory saw Arsenal go above United and occupy fourth place in the table.

'Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me.

Little is known about Kelly's child-support problems because the entire case - originally a divorce filing - was ordered sealed by a judge years ago.

Kelly has continuously denied all sexual abuse allegations against him, defending himself in a recent sit-down interview with Gayle King for CBS This Morning.

Kelly's attorney went on to say that "there is no money", for the women accusing the singer while hinting that the only real incentive for the women going public is "fame". "I made mistakes, but I'm not a devil".

"Thanks for the order, guys, " Kelly said as he stood behind several microphones set up by reporters and cameramen who earlier had been ordered to move onto a sidewalk away from the jail gates.

The lawyer also said Kelly "denies that he is on any tape with underaged girls".

Judge Rosen last month warned Kelly that he faced jail time unless he paid the child support.

Allred, who represents women who say they were abused by Kelly, said the tape from Dennis was turned over to law enforcement in the federal Eastern District of NY.

Also, late past year, Talk show host Wendy Williams echoed the same allegation that the singer still suffers from illiteracy "Robert, it's always been said and he actually did admit this to me, I was shocked he was actually admitting this - because he can't read, he can't write and he can't add", she said.
