R. Kelly is on the hook for another significant child support payment … and his ex-wife wants to set a firm deadline to get the dough, because she’s convinced he’ll never pony up otherwise.
According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ … the disgraced singer’s ex-wife, Drea Kelly, is asking the court for a hard and fast deadline for Kelly to pay her the $32k he owes in interest on back child support.
In the docs, Drea claims Kelly is dragging his feet on the payment because the court never imposed a set date for him to cough it up … and she wants a deadline to be enforced, or else she thinks she’ll never see the money.
Remember, Kelly’s been required to pay $20,833 per month in child support since January 2009. He fell behind on his payments, to the tune of $161,633, and was arrested and sat in jail until he paid his tab.
But, Drea’s still fighting for the interest on that money … and she wants the court to get involved to force Kelly’s hand.
Of course, child support’s only one of Kelly’s worries nowadays … he was in a Chicago courthouse Thursday morning, where he pled not guilty on the new round of sexual assault and abuse charges he’s facing.
