According to Dreak Kelly, the singers abusive ways didn't end when they got divorced as he tried to control her by cutting her off from child support.

The singer spent a weekend in jail after his arrest last month and was not freed until a 47-year-old suburban Chicago business owner posted $100,000 bail.

After Kelly was jailed, Smith revealed that Kelly had been found in contempt for failing to pay the child support and ordered into custody.

R. Kelly's explosive interview with Gayle King of CBS This Morning continues to make waves days after the first portion of the 80-minute segment was released. I'll tell you a secret: I had him go to a doctor to get shots, libido-killing shots.
