R. KELLY BACK IN CUSTODY

CHICAGO (AP) — A spokeswoman for the jail where R. Kelly is being held says he will not be released until he pays $161,000 in back child support. Kelly was taken into custody at the Cook County Jail in Chicago yesterday after appearing in court for unpaid child support. His publicist, Darryll Johnson, says Kelly came to the hearing prepared to pay $50,000 to $60,000, but the judge wanted the whole amount. Johnson says Kelly cannot pay the full amount because he has been unable to work. Johnson says the judge's decision means nobody wins, because "the kids still don't have any money." Kelly's next hearing is set for next Wednesday. Kelly was free on bail after being charged last month with 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of four women, including three who were underage. He has pleaded not guilty. David France, the manager for Kelly's ex-wife, Andrea Kelly, tells the Chicago Sun-Times the singer was supposed to make a child support payment by late Tuesday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Swift acknowledges she fears for her safety and that of her fans. Swift tells Elle magazine she carries Army-grade bandages for gunshot and stab wounds with her. She says she went through great effort and expense to make sure her fans were safe after the shootings in Las Vegas and the bombing at Manchester Arena in England.

KELSEA BALLERINI IS INVITED TO JOIN GRAND OLE OPRY

NASHVILLE (AP) — Kelsea Ballerini says her mindset in performing with Little Big Town at the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday was simply not to mess up. When Little Big Town changed the words of "Girl Crush" to ask Ballerini to be its newest Opry member, Ballerini did not know what was happening. Ballerini says she did not know the invitation was coming, nor did her mom, who was in the audience. However, Ballerini says her band and her team knew. Ballerini says the Opry has always been kind to her and first invited her to perform before she even had a hit song.
