According to TMZ, Joann Kelly, aka Buku Abi, was attending a California art school but, last Fall, she tried signing up for classes for the next semester but got denied because of unpaid bills. It was said that during the time she was in school, Kelly stopped paying for the apartment Joann was living in so she had to move out, and she had to pay for her own books for a while because he stopped doing that too.

Now, sources close to the singer say that
Kelly, who’s on the hook for Joann’s tuition and education expenses until she turns 23, just thought there were no bills to pay because she wasn’t enrolled this past semester. Kelly’s Crisis Manager, Darrell Johnson spoke with TMZ and said Kelly’s requirement to pay for her education is predicated on him receiving billing statements and proof of expenses and he claims he never got them.

Johnson said Kelly believed Joann chose to drop out of school which is why he stopped getting bills. Johnson adds that Joann’s mother Drea Kelly never shared any documentation or proof that Joann got kicked out of school either.

Despite the confusion, Joann says she wants wants to return to college and needs the financial support from her father, TMZ reports.
