R. Kelly, who turned himself in to Chicago Police for 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, sold his beanie baby collection to finance his bail.
Someone from R. Kelly’s team said, “R. Kelly was in a desperate situation and had to let go of his prized Beanie Baby collection that he’s been building over the past two decades.”
Beanie Babies were a huge hit in 90s but don’t hold much value anymore. R. Kelly allegedly had a handful of Beanie Babies that are still valuable and sought after from some of the world’s top collectors.
“I’m not sure why, nor do I want to know, R. Kelly had such a large and still valuable Beanie Baby collection,” said renown Beanie Baby collector Ty Beanington. “I didn’t ask any questions, I just wanted his babies.”
