US singer, R Kelly has reportedly been left with negative $13 account balance after over $150,000 was seized from him to settle a debt with his former landlord.
The sum of $154,527.22 was cleared out of the singer’s accounts l with Bank of America to reimburse Kelly’s Chicago landlord for back rent after the property owner won a $173,000 settlement against him.
After the sum was deducted, $650 was left in the account, according to reports in The Blast.
It was discovered that R Kelly now has on $13 dollars left as reported by Wintrust Bank when the landlord tried to recoup the nearly $20,000 still owed him.
Kelly’s former landlord is asking Sony, Kelly’s recording label, to settle the debt. Lawyers representing the landlord have asked the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publisher to relinquish funds earmarked for Kelly.
However, the songwriters organization claims they don’t owe the singer.
Kelly was charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse back in February. He faces a maximum of up to 70 years behind bars if convicted.
