R. Kelly Ordered to Use Royalties to Pay Back Rent

Last year Grammy Award winning singer / songwriter R. Kelly was sued by his former landlord for unpaid rent at his Chicago recording studio [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Sony has been ordered to pay the past due amount directly from his royalties account...

From The Chicago Sun Times
A Cook County judge has ordered Sony to give all the money in R. Kelly’s royalties account — more than $1.5 million — to the singer’s former landlord to cover past-due rent.
Earlier this year, Kelly’s former landlord — Midwest Commercial Funding, a Wisconsin-based property management company — secured a $3.5 million judgment against the singer to cover unpaid rent and repair costs at the studio space at 219 N. Justine St.
