R. Kelly is going to have to make a way out of no way when it comes to paying a large amount of money to two victims. According to Rolling Stone, the singer has been ordered to pay over $309,000 in restitution to two victims who testified against him at his Brooklyn federal trial. “Jane Doe #6” took the stand during the trial and will receive $300,000 from the singer to cover the costs of therapy and herpes treatment. She accused the Pied Piper of knowingly giving her herpes during her testimony.
“Stephanie,” another victim who testified at the Brooklyn trial, will receive approximately $8,000. However, the amount will likely increase, the Department of Justice said in a statement to Rolling Stone. This amount is for her herpes treatment and psychological treatment. It’s unclear how or when R. Kelly will be able to pay.
