Singer R-Kelly is out of jail — again.

After leaving the Cook County jail on accusations of failing to pay child support Saturday, Kelly told reporters “I promise you we’re going to straighten all this stuff out.”

It’s the second time in less than a month the singer has posted bail.

He also bailed out of jail February 25th after being detained on ten counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

His attorney previously said the entertainment doesn’t have the the 161 thousand dollars he owes in back child support – which was also the amout for his bail.

It’s unclear who paid the money to get him out.

Kelly maintains his innocence on the sexual abuse charges.

He ranted and cried during an interview with CBS News’ Gayle King that aired this week.
