The superfan who paid $100,000 of R. Kelly's $1 million bond is reportedly a 47-year-old female entrepreneur who owns a restaurant and daycare center in suburban Chicago, Illinois.
Fox 32 News anchor Tia Ewing reports the generous benefactor who helped spring the troubled R&B crooner from jail on Monday owns the Love on the Blu restaurant in Blue Island, Illinois.
"Valencia Patrice Love, age 47 of Romeoville says she is a friend of #RKelly on his 4 bond slips. She paid a total of $100,000 to get Kelly out of jail. @fox32new," Ewing tweeted on Monday.
Ewing also searched the Illinois Secretary of State's website for more businesses owned by Love.
#Rkelly's friend who paid the $100,000 for him to get out the county owns more than a brunch spot. According to @DailyMail she owns a local daycare here in Chicago. Meanwhile Kelly is facing charges of criminal sexual abuse involving 3 minors and an adult.
"Here's record reflecting the woman who bailed out #RKelly is connected to a local daycare here in Chicago," Ewing tweeted.
Angry Twitter users flooded the post thread with threats directed toward Love for bonding Kelly out of jail.
Kelly spent the weekend in jail after his arrest on 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of four female victims, including three minors under age 18.
Kelly must avoid contact with young women under age 18. He was also forced to surrender his passport as a condition of his bond.
Love is reported to be the blond woman seen in video dining with Kelly at a McDonald's restaurant after he was released from jail (see video below).

Everybody in Chicago needs to boycott Love On The Blu. Valencia Patrice Love is the owner and bailed out Robert Kelly. She also has a daycare so boycott that as well. ?
