Chief Policy Officer Cara Smith says the person wanted to remain anonymous.

According to a report by People, Cook County Sheriff's office spokeswoman Sophia Ansari asserted that Kelly was released from custody after full payment on Saturday morning.

R.Kelly was released from a Chicago jail after turning himself in for the second time in almost two weeks.

R. Kelly walked out of a Chicago jail on Saturday after someone who officials say did not want to be publicly identified paid $161,633 that the R&B singer owed in back child support.

Kelly faces 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse for allegedly assaulting four women, three of whom were underage at the time.

Greenberg said the judge entered a gag order in the case, and that Kelly's divorce lawyer would be in domestic relations court with the singer on Wednesday. Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, recently said Kelly has been struggling financially. "I promise, we will straighten this out".

Some two weeks, Kelly put up $100,000 to be released from custody on criminal sexual abuse charges.

Kelly was re-arrested on Wednesday after he explained that he did not have as much as the $161, 633 that was due to be paid to the mother of his kids, Drea Kelly as child support. He now faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. The publicist said Kelly was "deflated" by the refusal.

Kelly, one of the best-selling musical artists of all time, has been dogged for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves.

Earlier this year in January a six-part documentary titled Surviving R. Kelly was released wherein the survivors came out and spoke about their ordeals.

During his explosive interview with Gayle King, R.Kelly said that he only has $350,000 left to his name, a result of which he claims is from people stealing his money.

King, who said she briefly met Kelly about five years ago, said the interview lasted about 80 minutes.
