Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, said he could not discuss the child support payment because of a judge's gag order in that case. "That's all I can say right now". Drea was among multiple women who alleged sexual misconduct against the singer in the recent Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly.
In the interview with CBS, Kelly insisted he was innocent of the charges and said his accusers are liars.
Kelly bailed out of jail on the sexual assault charges on February 25 and had since complained of financial difficulties, saying in an interview with CBS that "so many people" had access to his bank account and had stolen from him.
Kelly, wearing a grey sweatshirt under a red coat, left jail just before noon local time (around 4am Sunday AEDT), accompanied by Greenberg. "They love me, I love them", he said, welling up.

"No. No. No", he said when asked if he'd ever had sex with any minors, adding that his accusers were "absolutely" lying. "I have been buried alive from these lies". The hour-long special, titled The Gayle King Interview with R. Kelly, notably showcased an interview with the "Ignition - Remix" singer that featured him passionately defending himself against various accusations, including that he held women against their will.
