R. Kelly's not only facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse but now, he's under investigation for failure to pay child support, TMZ reports.

Gifford's comments came a day after Kelly was released from custody, having posted a $100,000 bond in connection with a litany of criminal sexual abuse charges.

Kelly's case was assigned to Cook County Associate Judge Lawrence Flood, who will preside over the trial. R. Kelly, however, remains in jail as he is unable to pay the bail. His next court date is March 22.

On Saturday (23rd Feb) at R. Kelly's bail hearing, his bond was reportedly set at $1 million by Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr., who described the allegations made against Kelly as "disturbing". Greenberg told Duncan and Gauthier that Kelly "hopes" to post bond sometime Monday afternoon. "Surviving R. Kelly" took a sweeping look at decades of sexual misconduct allegations against Kelly and prompted Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx to make a public plea requesting potential witnesses or victims to come forward. He was tried and acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008 after prosecutors said a graphic video showed him having sex with a girl as young as 13.

"He's not a monster, he's not", she said before adding, "He's been nothing but a gentleman to me".

Martinez was flanked by her attorney, Gloria Allred, who said that she represents more than six people who claim to have suffered abuses at the hands of Kelly. Kelly used force or the threat of force, according to the charges.

"At the age of 17, I was walking in the mall with friends like so many teenagers often do when I was approached by a predator, and that predator is Robert Sylvester Kelly", she said in front of a crowd of reporters.

R. Kelly was released from jail on Monday.

Kelly has hit songs like "I Believe I Can Fly", "Ignition (Remix)" and more. He said the footage from 1999 or 2000 is about 55 minutes long, but he did not say if it was the same 14-year-old girl seen in the first video he turned over to the authorities.

"He's trying to get it together". Greenberg said last month that the claims against the 52-year-old were "false", and stated that his client "never knowingly had sex with an underage woman".

This comes after Avenatti previously gave prosecutors a VHS tape that allegedly showed Kelly and an underage teenage girl engaged in sexual activity.

"He's a rock star". Greenberg said Kelly denies the allegations.

If convicted, Kelly faces three to seven years in prison for each count.

Greenberg told CNN his client "does not have to pay the child support before getting out".
