The Pied Pipers ex-wife, dancer and reality star of ‘R&B Diva’s L.A.’, Andrea Kelly has filed suit claiming Kells missed at least one of his $20,833 per-month payments. That’s PER MONTH people. Now let me put this in perspective, R. Kelly’s worth about $150 million dollars and unfortunately making money like that has it’s pros and cons. By the way, this is allegedly the second time Kells fell behind on his payments. Last year he fell behind by about $100 thousand, but caught everything up without incident.
However, this go around may not go so smoothly because the singer is also facing jail time. According to reports, R.
