Poor R. Kelly.
The guy just wants to move on with life.
If only that pesky child porno case would go away.
The filthy human being, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is being sued by a private investigator who claims the star stiffed him on a $300,000 bill.
According to a lawsuit filed last week in Missouri federal court, Charles Freeman claims he was hired in the midst of Kelly's recent trial to "obtain and/or recover certain tapes that were said to incriminate" R. Kelly.
One of presumably many R. Kelly mug shots.
Kelly was pretty miraculously found not guilty on all counts, despite being charged with 21 counts of having sexual intercourse with a minor (Lisa Van Allen).
Freeman said he did the job (which was somehow legal, apparently, if he's admitting to it) but never got paid. He's suing for damages, interest and costs.
