R. Kelly is claiming that he didn’t launch the first salvo in the war between himself and his ex-wife over child support. According to TMZ, sources close to the singer say that he only quit paying out his child support checks to Drea Kelly because she turned their children against him.

According to the site, Kelly believes that he attempted to maintain a relationship with the three children he has with Drae, but that she brainwashed them and turned them against him. Kelly’s failure to pay $161,000 in child support was what landed him in jail a second time — the first, of course, being his arrest on ten counts of sexual abuse, allegedly of teenage girls.

Ironically, Kelly is also facing brainwashing allegations from the family of Joycelyn Savage, who claim he turned her into his sex slave.

Kelly has paid the minimum amount required thanks to help from an outside party and was released over the weekend.
