Landlord Seizes R. Kelly Royalties for Back Rent

Back in January R&B singer / songwriter R. Kelly was evicted from his recording studio in Chicago after he stopped paying the rent [click here if you missed that].

Now Kellz' former landlord is coming for his royalties...

From The Blast
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly’s former landlord, Midwest Commercial Funding recently issued a subpoena to Sony Music Holdings, Inc and was able to get the music company to freeze $264,535 in Kelly’s biannual royalty account.
The amount frozen by Sony was meant to pay off the $173,855.08 Midwest was still owed on a judgement awarded after the R&B singer stopped paying rent on his infamous Chicago music studio.
However, after Sony froze Kelly’s account, Midwest was able to collect $154, 527.22 from one of Kelly’s Bank of America accounts after a “turnover order” was issued.
After applying the payment from BofA, Midwest says they only need $52,431.55 from the Sony account, and the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer will be clear on his debt.

That's why he out here in these ghetto azz dive clubs making appearances. They're snatching his money left and right.
Time to make his mini harem go get some jobs.

So he's not broke and is still making money. I thought The Haughton/Hankersons owned his publishing, but naybe that was just for songs he made while under contract w/Jive. He's been with RCA/Sony since 2012 so that would explain these royalty payments. Anywho, this man is a whole mess!
