R&B singer R Kelly has been released from a Chicago jail after an unknown donor paid £123,000 ($161,000) in child support owed by the star.

Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff's Office, said that the payment was made Saturday morning but that she was unsure who was responsible, The Associated Press reported.

According to R.Kelly's attorney, Steven Greenberg, who spoke immediately after Kelly on his behalf, the once lucrative artist was faithful in making payments. "I promise you." He then went on to thank fans after he asked if he had anything to say to them. He came back into headlines following the explosive documentary series "Surviving R. Kelly" that aired in January.

Singer R. Kelly was released from jail yesterday after paying child support following a previous detention on sex abuse charges.

In that case, Kelly was jailed on February 22 and released three days later after posting $100,000 bail.

The "Ignition" hitmaker was arrested this week after he allegedly failed to pay his ex-wife Andrea Lee the $161,000 in child support he had been ordered to hand over for their three children, Joann, 21, Jay, 19, and Robert, 17.

"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.

Greenberg also said he didn't know how the child support will play out, whether or not a judge will reduce the $20,000 a month Kelly paid "religiously" until the allegations against him and ultimately the charges made it impossible to do.

Kelly told "CBS This Morning" during an interview this past week that people had stolen money from his bank accounts.

The singer's defence attorney had previously said the singer was having financial difficulties and his finances were a "mess".

Gayle King has revealed that she was banned from asking questions about Aaliyah during her recent interview with R. Kelly. "I gave you 30 years of my f-ing career!" Everybody is now coming forward and saying, "I met this man, and this is what happened".
