RadioOnFire.com – The mystery female friend who paid $100,000 to get R. Kelly out of jail over the recent sexual abuse charges will not have to answer questions under oath about her relationship with the singer, with a judge dismissing her from a legal battle.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Chicago judge recently dismissed Valencia Love from the lawsuit between Kelly and his former recording studio landlord.
The landlord won a $173,000 judgment against Kelly over unpaid rent and has been trying to collect for several months. They fired off subpoenas to multiple banks where Kelly had accounts, Sony Music, and ASCAP (for his royalties). They were able to seize $154k from his Bank of America accounts plus $50k from Sony, which settled the debt.
They also were informed by WinTrust Bank that Kelly was overdrawn and had negative $13 in his account.
In newly filed docs in the case, it is revealed the landlord had also subpoenaed Love, in an effort to ask her if she was holding money for Kelly or had any of his assets.
