R. Kelly’s Friend Who Paid Bail Received Bomb Threat

March 4, 2019

Another twist in the ongoing criminal charges and controversy surrounding R. Kelly.

If you remember, a friend of R. Kelly’s, Valencia P. Love, posted the $100,000 bond needed to get him out of a Chicago jail last week.

On Sunday, Love received a bomb threat at her one-time place of employment… a daycare, according to CBS Chicago reporter Brad Edwards.

As of late Sunday afternoon, Chicago Police told CBS Chicago multiple calls came in on Saturday and that the daycare was evacuated. No one was hurt, but police are investigating.

The singer-songwriter was arrested on February 22 on 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse. He has been trailed for decades by allegations that he violated underage girls and women and held some as virtual slaves.

Kelly has consistently denied any sexual misconduct, and he was acquitted of child pornography charges in 2008.
