The Black woman who paid R. Kelly’s $100,000 bond claims she received numerous bomb threats to her Chicago daycare center.
According to CBS-Chicago reporter Brad Edwards, police confirm that they got multiple calls on Sunday from Valencia P. Love saying they had received a bomb threat. Apparently, everyone was evacuated from the South Side facility, however a local bomb squad did not find any explosives.
Police are still investigating these threats.
While Love, 47, is currently listed as a “registered agent” with the daycare under the Illinois Secretary of State, daycare personnel, as well as the Department of Children and Family Services, say Love no longer works at the daycare anymore, TMZ noted.
Apparently, she lost her job after news of Love went viral last week, linking her to the daycare center.
Love posted Kelly’s bail last week, telling Chicago reporter Tia Ewing, that she does not believe the singer, who she has only known for a few months, is not a monster.
“He’s my friend and I knew he needed help,” she told Ewing.
“There are three sides to every story, his side, there’s [the alleged victims], and the truth.”
Love confirmed that she had paid the singer’s bond, but wouldn’t disclose where the money came from.
“It wasn’t my money. I’m not going to say whose money it is.”
As we previously reported, Kelly was released from jail last Monday after being arrested “and charged with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving four victims, three of whom were minors.”
The allegations date back to 1998 and span more than a decade.
Kelly could face up to 70 years in prison if found guilty on these charges.
