A week after his headline-making interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, the Grammy-winning singer stepped back out in public on Wednesday in Chicago to attend a court hearing regarding his ongoing child support problems. Fans may recall the star was released from jail over the weekend after he was arrested a week ago for failing to pay $161,633 he owed in back child support. The star appeared at a hearing for the case last Wednesday before being taken into custody. 

According to NBC News, Kelly's publicist Darryl Johnson told the media before the hearing this Wednesday that the singer wanted to petition to lower his monthly child support payments. Johnson further claimed Kelly can't work because of "all these accusations and lies," perhaps referencing the 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse he pleaded not guilty to last month and the mounting allegations against him. Per NBC News, Johnson said he advised Kelly to do an interview. "He faces 70 years in a state penitentiary. You're going to get emotional. Mr. Kelly is an emotional person, but he's a gentle person," he said of his famous client.
