R. Kelly has been released from jail in Chicago after the $USD161,000 he owed in child support was paid.
The Cook County sheriff's office said the money was paid this morning and he was set free shortly afterwards.
It is unclear who made the singer's payment.
The singer's defence attorney had previously said the singer was having financial difficulties and his finances were a "mess".
R. Kelly has been a target of a boycott campaign, and his recording contract has been cancelled.
