R. Kelly has run into a legal mess his former manager for not honoring a financial agreement the two had reached to sever their business relationship.
Kelly and Derrel McDavid went their separate ways in 2013 after working together for over two decades. They reached an agreement for Kelly to give McDavid a $1.3 million send-off.
According to TMZ, Kelly paid McDavid $300,000 and was scheduled to pony up $40,000 a month until the balance was settled.
McDavid has filed a lawsuit against the Grammy Award-winning singer, claiming he hasn't received a dime following the initial $300,000 payment.
After a 20-year working relationship, McDavid knows a lot about Kelly's personal disputes with women and others. The report states that the singer is "playing with fire" by not paying what he owes to McDavid.
