Real! At least it looks that way. The answer to this one is a little long because the drama of R. Kelly’s child support woes with his ex-wife Hollywood exes co-star Andrea Kelly is getting even crazier.
Here’s a little background info: It came out Friday that Andrea contacted Project Child Support to push R. Kelly to pay the $114,000 he owed in back child support. The organization’s President, Virgina M. Rucinski said in a statement, “We will provide Mrs. Kelly’s attorney with the terms and conditions we provided in other cases where the Court granted enforcement orders to enable the collection of arrears for our clients.” R. Kelly quickly fought back and said it was a lie and he was all caught up with his child support. The Ignition singer’s rep said that he is actually all caught up. It got strange when Andrea’s reps ALSO said that Mr. Kelly was not behind in his child support. Huh?
Now for the new stuff: While this might have worked out for Andrea and her ex-husband, it made Project Child Support look like they didn’t quite know what they were talking about, and they weren’t having that. They released a candid statement to La Chic, the firm that initially put it out that Andrea hired them, to set the record straight.
This letter will confirm that Project Child Support was contracted and entered into a written agreement to provide investigative, collection and if necessary contract apprehension services to assist in the collection of unpaid child support by Robert Sylvester Kelly (A.K.A R Kelly). Our office was contacted by Alison Motta, who stated that she was Andrea Kelly’s attorney and needed investigative services to assist in the collection of more than $100,000 in unpaid child support by R Kelly….
It is my belief that our services were contracted to leverage negotiations between Mr. and Ms. Kelly, to force Mr. Kelly to pay his arrears. The type of services we provide, as well as the success of our program is well documented and available online. I don’t believe that coincidently Mr. Kelly paid months of unpaid child support arrears, only after Project Child Support was contracted to provide services to collect the arrears.
In other words, somebody lyin.
Attached to the letter is information that does in fact confirm that Andrea hired the group.
