Who Is Valencia Love? And Why Did She Pay R. Kelly $100K Bail?

Chicago, IL. (THECOUNT) — CHICAGO, IL. (THECOUNT) — Valencia Love has been identified as the woman who paid $100,000 to get R. Kelly sprung from a Chicago jail.

Love, 43, is the ‘friend’ who posted bail to release Kelly from custody Monday saying later that she didn’t use her own money to pay the $100,000 bail.

ABC News reportedly obtained the bond slips identifying the friend as Valencia Love, who later confirmed to the news outlet that she did in fact post Kelly’s bond, reports CrimeOnline.

“It was his own money. I just posted bail for him,” Love said, describing Kelly as a “good friend.”

Kelly was arrested last week and charged with 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse, involving four alleged victims. Three of the four women were underage at the time of the allegations.


Singer R. Kelly is still hold up in a Chicago jail as of Sunday after it was revealed the crooner was unable to pony up 10 percent of his $1,000,000 bail.

Kelly, who is facing a pending sex abuse trial, remains behind bars the 7,000-inmate Cook County Jail, according the county sheriff’s online inmate locator.

Kelly, 52, was charged Friday with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse involving four victims, three of whom were minors.

The judge set bail at $1 million, requiring Kelly to pay 10 percent to go free, 12NewsNow reported Sunday.

In bond court Saturday, a judge set bail at $1 million, requiring the performer to pay 10 percent to get sprung.

Bond can be paid by credit card, cash or check. Court officials must be able to talk to bank officials directly to confirm that an amount written on a check is covered, and that’s not possible when banks are closed on Sunday, reported 12NewsNow.

At the bond hearing, Kelly’s lawyer argued to the judge that his Grammy Award-winning client was far from wealthy, despite decades of success touring and creating hit songs for himself and other artists.

Kelly’s lawyer blamed mismanagement, bad contracts and “other issues” for Kelly’s financial woes.

“This is someone who should be wealthy at this stage of his career. … He really doesn’t have any more money,” Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg said, arguing for a bail amount within his client’s means.

Greenberg said at the conclusion of the hearing that he was happy with the amount set by the judge, saying he hoped Kelly could be out by Saturday evening. Which apparently did not happen.
