R. Kelly leaves jail, promises to 'straighten all this stuff out''

R&B singer R. Kelly, who is accused of sexually abusing underage girls, was released from jail on Saturday, and said he was going to "straighten all of this stuff out."

“I promise you we’re gonna straighten all of this stuff out," he told a crowd of reporters outside the Cook County Jail in Chicago after being bailed out.

Kelly was rearrested earlier this week after law enforcement officials said he declined to pay his ex-wife $161,000 in child support. He posted bail for the second time on Saturday.

Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, condemned how his client was being portrayed, which he called "the pitchfork justice that's going on around here," according to CNN

"It's open season on R. Kelly," Greenberg told reporters outside the jail after Kelly left.

Last month, a grand jury indicted Kelly on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He is accused of abusing three underage girls and one woman between 1998 and 2010. Kelly pleaded not guilty to all of the charges and has denied the allegations against him.
