R. Kelly’s Landlord Seizes His Sony Music Royalties Over Unpaid Debt

R. Kelly problems keep on piling up and his legal battles are becoming more than just the multiple counts of criminal sexual abuse he’s charged with.

The singer allegedly owes his landlord rent that’s quite heavy for the broke singer to pay. According to documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly’s former landlord, Midwest Commercial Funding, has issued a subpoena to Sony Music Holdings in an effort to get them to freeze the $264,535 in the singer’s royalty account.

Kelly allegedly stopped paying rent on his Chicago recording studio and owed the company $173,855.08, but after Sony froze the account, Midwest was able to collect $154,527.22 from one of the singer’s Bank of America accounts.

That only came after a “turnover order” was issued for payment. Now, Midwest needs Sony to make payment on the remainder of Kelly’s debt to the tune of $52,431.55. After that, Kelly will be in the clear… or not?
