A woman who paid $100,000 (Ksh. 10million) for R. Kelly’s bond will not be getting her money back.

Valencia Love helped the famous artiste pay for the bond whose total payable amount was about $1million (Ksh. 103million).

”Kelly is now back in jail, being held without bail,” CBS said adding that investigators will be digging into new allegations.

However, according to Ms. Love’s lawyer, she was not made aware of the new investigations at the time of posting the bond.

Advocate John Collins argued that the court had no reason to hold on to her Ksh. 10million since R. Kelly is back in custody.

Judge Lawrence Flood however poked holes into that argument saying that Ms. Love signed a bond slip whose conditions cannot be changed.

He added that the money may be redirected towards other purposes such as payment of costs and fines.

Several women including Hollywood celebrities have accused R.Kelly of sexual assault.
