R. Kelly’s new album Black Panties is headed to a top ten debut on the Billboard album chart with sales predicted to be close to 100,000 units. That’s good news for Kells, because the R&B singer reportedly owes his ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, about one dollar for every one of those albums sold.

R. Kelly is said to be behind on $114,900 in child support payments to the star of VH1′s reality show Hollywood Exes. Project Child Support is providing information to Andrea Kelly’s lawyers to help collect the unpaid funds. PCS conducted an investigative report to determine Robert “R.” Kelly’s income and assets.
“We will provide Mrs. Kelly’s attorney with the terms and conditions we provided in other cases where the Court granted enforcement orders to enable the collection of arrears for our clients,” says Virginia M. Rucinski, president of the Custodial Support Foundation and Project Child Support initiative.
The Project Child Support initiative includes investigative, collection and apprehension services provided by Bounty Alert and legal services provided by Custodial Support Foundation.
Robert and Andrea were married for 13 years before getting divorced in 2009. They have three children together.
UPDATE: R. Kelly’s representative Kristen Foster issued the following statement, “The Custodial Support Foundation should check their facts. Mr. Kelly is current on his child support payments.”
