A woman who posted bond for R. Kelly earlier this year will not get her money back, at least not immediately, a Cook County judge ruled Tuesday. Valencia Love put up the $100,000 in February; she had met the singer on a boat cruise, according to a friend of Kelly.
Love filed a motion because she wants that money back. Her attorney appeared in court Tuesday at a status hearing in Kelly’s state criminal case. He told the judge his client had no knowledge of federal investigations in New York or Illinois when she posted bond and that Kelly is a man of “vast resources.”
