On top of a grand jury serving him up with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, it appears there could be more charges R. Kelly might soon face. TMZ reports that the singer is also facing potential jail time due to unpaid child support bills.

According to the report, a Cook County judge found R. Kelly in contempt for owing $169,996 in unpaid child support to Drea Kelly. The singer was reportedly supposed to pay his ex $20,833 per month as of January 2009, but he appears to have failed to pay those amounts for the last year.

According to a court order, the singer has until March 6 to pay the past due amount. Otherwise, he will be sent to County Jail. Additionally, the actual amount is said to be $194,045.70 due to interest, education and healthcare costs for his three children with his ex-wife.
