Sophia Ansari, a spokeswoman for Cook County Sheriff's Department, which operates the jail, did not immediately know who paid the back child support on Kelly's behalf. Last month, he was charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse pertaining to four women, including three who were minors when the alleged abuse occurred. "That is all I can say right now". R. Kelly even revealed how much he had in his bank account, that was only $350K from the previous $150 million he was once worth.
The singer, who was tried and acquitted on 14 counts involving child pornography in 2008, has denied the new charges.
Following being released, Kelly addressed the press who were waiting for him outside of Cook County jail.
As reported in the recent "Surviving R. Kelly" documentary, the R&B singer allegedly married Aaliyah when she was just 15 years old.
The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid on Saturday morning and Kelly was freed shortly afterwards.

The performer, 52, was arrested on Wednesday over the unpaid support for three children he has with Andrea Lee.
"As far as the child support matter, what was posted, the judge has entered a gag order, so we can't really talk about that", Greenberg said.
It was unclear this time around if Love, a local business owner whose companies have come under attack since she posted the bond, went ahead and paid Kelly's bill once again.
Later in the interview, when asked about owing back child support, the singer admitted he was struggling financially.
The singer's defence attorney had previously said the singer was having financial difficulties and his finances were a "mess". "Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me", he added. "I don't think he's done anything inappropriate for years". Everybody is now coming forward and saying, "I met this man, and this is what happened".
