UPDATE: R. Kelly is back behind bars after failing to pay the child support he owes. Once he pays the full amount owed, he will be released. Kelly appeared in court today for his child support hearing and ended up being escorted out by deputies for failing to pay. You can see video of Kelly being escorted out of court in handcuffs below.

Kelly has of course been the center of renewed media focus today following his bizarre interview with CBS in which he cried, stood up and yelled, and stated once again that he is innocent.

ORIGINAL: TMZ has another update on singer R. Kelly, who could now be facing jail time to his unpaid child support bills. Per the report, R. Kelly currently owes more than $160,000 in unpaid child support to his ex-wife, Drea Kelly.

Sources claim that he hasn’t paid $161,633 that he owes to his ex-wife, and the reported deadline to pay them is today (Mar. 6). The report notes that if the singer does not meet the deadline, he could be sent back to jail in Cook County.

Additionally, it’s said that the full amount he actually owes his ex-wife is closer to $200,000. The minimum is the $161,633 amount that’s due today.

If he doesn’t meet the deadlines, the singer could be charged criminally for his failure to pay the support. Any amount that’s over $20,000 is considered a felony.
