R. Kelly Is Back In Jail

Following his emotional outbursts during an interview with Gayle King, R. Kelly is now reportedly heading back to jail.

Kelly was arrested last month on charges that he sexually abused four women, but was bailed out after pleading not guilty to all charges.

During his interview on CBS This Morning, Kelly continued to deny all charges against him, claiming he had been "assassinated".

"I didn't do this stuff! This is not me! I'm fighting for my f***ing life! Y'all killing me with this sh*t!" Kelly said, standing up. "I gave you 30 years of my f***ing career!"

King was commended for the way she masterfully handled the emotional R&B singer as he became irate through the interview.

The same day the interview aired, Kelly was arrested and taken into custody, the Cook County Sheriff's Office confirmed.

Kelly faces a charge of failing to pay more than US$160,000 in back child support payments, and will reportedly stay in the county jail until he pays what he owes.

The singer has been charged several times in the past, including in 2002 when he was indicted on child sex charges with prosecutors saying he had made a sex tape with a teenager.
