R. Kelly was bailed out by a woman who believes he’s innocent — at least for now — and says she simply stepped up to the plate to help a friend in need.
Valencia P. Love is the Chicago businesswoman who reportedly covered the $100k bond Monday to secure Kelly’s release, and she says, “There are three sides to every story, [Kelly’s] side, there’s (the alleged victims), and the truth.”
That statement seems to acknowledge Kelly is being less than truthful, but Love also told Chicago’s FOX32 … “As a friend if he says he’s innocent, I can only believe that he is innocent.”
Love also insists Kelly is not a monster, and says there are much worse problems in Chicago — like hundreds of Catholic priests being accused of sex abuse and a missing woman named Kierra Coles.
Valencia makes it clear she’s not condoning any of the allegations, saying, “If he did it he is wrong” … but believes Kelly should get the chance to clear his name.
As for the bond money, Love claims the $100k wasn’t hers. She also refused to say who did put it up. She claims the singer is NOT hard up for cash, and she merely helped him get out a few days early.
