The federal government is really determined to take down R. Kelly. New reports claim the feds are on the prowl for x-rated footage of the controversial singer with underaged women.
According to reports, feds and prosecutors in Illinois are focused on finding the sex tape footage.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois is interviewing parties closely associated with Kelly. We’re told prosecutors have been asking about the possible existence of VHS tapes purportedly showing Kelly having sex with minors.Rumors about an alleged stash of R. Kelly sex tapes have been floating around since Kelly went to trial on child porn charges back in 2008, but it’s never been found … not by law enforcement, anyway. (TMZ)
In March,, Kells hopped on Instagram with a birthday shout-out to his daughter.
Recently, Kells’ legal team couldn’t convince a judge to lower his child support payments.
Kelly’s publicist, Darryll Johnson, said Kelly has no assets to sell, not even his home at Trump Tower, because he rents the condo, and paid rent in advance several years ago. Johnson said he and Kelly’s attorneys are representing him for free. Wednesday’s hearing on the child support payments was sealed to the public, but Kelly’s attorneys confirmed afterward that there would be no change in those payments, and the next hearing has been scheduled for May 8.

Despite the outcome, Kelly is reportedly sticking to his music grind and putting new tunes together.
Johnson said Kelly is still recording music, even though he was dropped by his record label in January. “He’s recording every day. He has a studio in his home, so he’s always recording,” Johnson said. “All he does is sing; sing and record all day, and when he’s not doing that, he’s shooting basketball.” (Chicago CBS Local)
