R. Kelly's daughter says that she was forced to drop out of college because her father stopped paying her tuition.
According to TMZ, a source told them that Joann Lee, aka Buku Abi, was attending a California art school until last Fall when she tried signing up for classes for the next semester but got denied because of an unpaid bill. Kelly is on the hook to pay for Buku's tuition and any other education expenses until she turns 23. Buku is only 21.
Kelly reportedly cut off her tuition last year without warning. Buku wants to return to college and is now seeking for Kelly to reinstate her funding.
She made headlines back in January when she posted a message to her Instagram in solidarity with the victims of Kelly following the airing of 'Surviving R. Kelly.'
Buke wrote “same monster you all are confronting me about is my father. I am well aware of who and what he is. I grew up in that house. My choice not to speak on him and what he does is for my peace of mind. My emotional state. And for my healing.”
