Popular R&B singer, R. Kelly is presently in a very bad place financially.
He was reportedly left with negative $13 account balance after $154,527.22 was seized out of accounts he had with Bank of America to refund his Chicago landlord for back rent after the property owner won a $173,000 settlement against the embattled performer.
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.
