RnB singer R. Kelly seems to be in a lot of trouble these days. The embattled singer is reportedly left with as little as $13 only, following a court ruling to seize $154,527.22 out of the accounts he had with Bank of America. The court gave this ruling so the singer could pay the rent he owed his Chicago landlord.
The court reportedly cleaned $154,527.22 out of accounts the singer had with Bank of America to reimburse Kelly’s Chicago landlord for back rent after the property owner won a $173,000 settlement against the embattled performer. The courts reportedly left Kelly with $650 in those accounts, according to reports in The Blast.
When that landlord tried to recoup the nearly $20,000 still owed him, Wintrust Bank claimed Kelly’s account with them was $13 in the red, the Blast claimed, citing court papers.
According to the report, Kelly’s former landlord is asking Sony, Kelly’s recording label, to settle the debt. Lawyers representing the landlord are also said to have asked the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publisher to relinquish funds earmarked for Kelly, but the songwriters organization claims they don’t owe him anything.
Matter of fact, the singer has a lot in his hands as he is likely to face a maximum of 70 years in incarceration for 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
