To add another L to the list, TMZ reported on R. Kelly’s daughter, Joan Lee, being forced to drop out of university because her father failed to foot the tuition bill. According to  with his ex-wife Drea, R. Kelly is to pay for his daughter’s school fees until she turns 23. Yet, the bill remains unpaid. Lee also claims her father stopped paying for her housing and school supplies, furthermore alleging that she had to pay for her own books. 

Despite his daughter’s claims, R. Kelly’s manager, Darrell Johnson, affirms the singer’s payments to be reliant on “billing statements and proof of expenses” which the artist claims to have never gotten. Kelly also claims to believe his daughter had dropped out because she stopped providing proof of payment requirements. Though sources shared with TMZ that Joan is ready to go back to school, however, with all the legal issues her father has been experiencing, we can’t help but wonder whether or not it is financially possible.
