Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for the Cook County sheriff, which operates the jail, did not know who paid the back child support, according to the Associated Press.

"I promise you, we're gonna straighten all this stuff out.That's all I can say right now", Kelly told fans outside Cook County Jail.

R Kelly now faces charges on ten counts of aggravated sexual abuse on four women, three of whom were minors at the time of the alleged incidents. The singer has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Upon his release, bail totaling the child support sum was posted on Kelly's behalf.

A few days ago, Kelly found himself behind bars over not paying over $160,000 in child support. Kelly and dancer Andrea Kelly divorced in 2009 and he is supposed to make payments of $20,000 per month, as well as educational expenses for his children, who are ages 16, 18, and 20.

"How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I've been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody, let alone 4, 5, 6, 50, you said - how stupid would I be to do that", Kelly said.

A sheriff's official says somebody who did not want to be publicly identified handed a check to the Cook County clerk's office for the full $161,633 back child support R. Kelly needed to be released from a Chicago jail.

Kelly faces accusations of sexually abusing young women - some of them underage.

The attorney said he has not talked with Kelly about the Gayle King interview on CBS News, but supports his decision. I'm trying to have a relationship with my kids and I can't do it! "Their mothers and fathers told me, 'We're going to destroy your career'".

He was at one time quoted saying that "so many people" had access to his bank account and had stolen from him.

It turns out that R. Kelly believes he will rise again, despite the massive scandal surrounding him and problems with the law!
