There’s broke and then there is R. Kelly broke.
Social media users are mocking the Grammy Award-winning musician after learning that he is allegedly worth minus $2-million.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the 54-year-old was once worth as much as $100-million.
R. Kelly’s career took a knock after a string of sexual abuse allegations were made against him. He is currently on trial and remains behind bars following his arrest in 2019.
Kelly was shunned by the music industry, with many people removing his songs from their playlists.
The singer has written hit singles for stars such as Aaliyah, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, and Destiny’s Child.
His legal team has admitted that he has “depleted” most of his funds.
Social media users cannot believe that R. Kelly is now in the red. Some joked that they had more money in their bank accounts than the singer.
“I thought I was poor till I googled R.Kelly’s net worth,” one Twitter user wrote.
