R. Kelly has left Cook County jail, The Chicago Tribune reports. Earlier today, it was reported that Kelly had posted $100,000 of his $1 million bond and would likely be granted release in the coming hours. Now, Tribune reporter Megan Crepeau has shared chaotic footage of Kelly's release via Twitter.
Kelly spent a total of three nights at Cook County jail after turning himself in on Friday night. After his bond was set at $1 million on Saturday, his attorney Steve Greenberg made a statement that Kelly "really doesn't have any money at this point." According to CNN, the disgraced singer additionally owes over $169,000 in child support and $166,000 in unpaid rent fees for his Chicago studio.
