Broke R Kelly looking to sell entire publishing catalogue
In other entertainment news, Briefly News reported that R Kelly is broke and is reportedly struggling to make ends meet. The musician, who was once a world superstar, is even willing to sell his entire music catalogue at a cheap price just to get money while he is in prison.
It has been reported that earlier this month, the singer's lawyer Devereaux Cannick told the court that Kelly's funds had "depleted" when he was making a request for free trial transcripts for his client.
Complex reported that the ongoing criminal cases and civil battles against the disgraced musician left him low on cash. The publication also reports that the value of his music catalog has taken a huge knock as people have joined the #MuteRKelly campaign and stopped listening to his music.
