Top musician R Kelly is broke and is reportedly struggling to make ends meet. The veteran music star, who was once a world superstar, is even willing to sell his entire music catalogue at a cheap price just to get money while he is in prison.

It has been reported that earlier this month, the US singer's lawyer Devereaux Cannick told the court that Kelly's funds had "depleted" when he was making a request for free trial transcripts for his client.
