(CBS NEWS) – Hours after his explosive interview with Gayle King aired on “CBS This Morning” R. Kelly found himself back behind bars Wednesday where authorities said he’ll remain until he comes up with the more than $161,000 he owes in child support payments.
Kelly told King he has just around $350,000 left in his bank account.
“So many people have been stealin’ my money. People was connected to my account. I went into – I went by myself for the first time to a Bank of America. Didn’t know what I was doing. Didn’t know what the hell was going on,” he said.
Kelly claims the first time he went alone to a Bank of America was about three weeks to a month ago. “Because I was so tired of not knowin’ where my money was, what my publishing is.”
Kelly conceded that a lot of not knowing his own financial situation is his fault, saying, “a lot of it’s on me.” To those who say he doesn’t have money because he’s had to pay out so many settlements, he said, “Lie.”
