R. Kelly will have to find a way out when it comes to paying a large sum of money to two victims. Corresponding Rolling Stone, the singer was ordered to pay over $309,000 in compensation to two victims who testified against him at his federal trial in Brooklyn. “Jane Doe #6” took the stand during the trial and is being paid $300,000 by the singer to cover therapy and herpes treatment costs. She accused the Pied Piper of knowingly giving her herpes during her testimony.
“Stephanie,” another victim who testified at the Brooklyn trial, will receive approximately $8,000. However, the amount is likely to increase, the Justice Department said in a statement to Rolling Stone. This amount is intended for her herpes treatment and psychological treatment. It’s unclear how or when R. Kelly can pay.
If you remember, prosecutors claim R. Kelly is broke. He reportedly has access to $5 million, with about $28,000 seized from his inmate commissioner account. Defense attorney Jennifer Bonjean said the money came from small donations from fans. Attorney Bonjean told US District Judge Ann Connelly that the Chicago native does not have access to other funds due to judgments in civil cases against him.
In addition, she insisted that her client was always ignorant of his finances. “He’s not the best source for that information,” she said. Though the refund is final, loyal R. Kelly supporters feel it’s unfair. One commented: “They’re doing way too much, the man isn’t coming out anytime soon, what else is he supposed to do.” Another commented, “HHow did he get paid from prison? Then he spent all his damn money on lawyers!”
Roommate, do you think R.Kelly will ever pay the refund?
