R. Kelly is reportedly broke after $150,000 was seized from multiple bank accounts after his former Chicago landlord filed a lawsuit accusing him of owing back rent.
The R&B singer has hit rock bottom and currently has -$13 in one of his bank accounts, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.
Wintrust Bank, where Kelly holds an account, informed his former landlord that Kelly’s balance with them is in the negatives.
Though that bank account has been drained, Kelly is said to have two other bank accounts with Bank of America.
One of those accounts held $44,595.58 and the other had $110,056.64.
However, all of that money was seized by the landlord, who filed a lawsuit accusing Kelly of owing back rent.
Kelly has $625 left between the two Bank of America accounts, according to The Blast.
The landlord was awarded $173,000 from the suit and subpoenas were sent to Sony Music, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and multiple banks.
According to The Blast, Kelly is not owed any money by the ASCAP, which collects money for artists.
In addition to the $154, 527.22 they collected from Bank of America, the landlord is asking that the judge release another $50,000 from Sony.
Kelly, 52, pleaded not guilty in February to charges that he sexually assaulted three teenage girls and a fourth woman.
The charges were brought against him after seven women including his ex-wife, appeared on Lifetime television documentary, Surviving R Kelly, and accused him of emotional and sexual abuse.
He spent a weekend in jail on the sex assault charges before being released on $100,000 bail on February 25.
