Midwest Commercial Funding, R. Kelly’s former landlord, has subpoenaed Sony Music Holdings, Inc. to freeze $264,535 of his biannual music royalties to cover the back rent on his Chicago music studio, The Blast reports.

The company has already collected $154,527. 22 from one of Kelly’s accounts but he still owes nearly $53,000, according to the celebrity website. Kelly was hit with a total of 66 code violations after the city investigated his recording studio in January.

Last weekend, the 52-year-old singer made $22,000 for an hourlong club appearance at the Dirty South Lounge in Springfield, IL. Only around 50 people came out to see Kelly who interacted with fans and sang the opening lyrics of “Bump & Grind,” according to TMZ.

Apparent fans reportedly paid up to $100 to watch Kelly “perform” for 28-seconds.
