    R. Kelly is being sued by his former manager after the singer allegedly failed to pay the first monthly payment of a $1.3 million settlement with the manager.

    Winkler & McDavid, Ltd. managed the Chicago native for years up until 2013 when the two parted ways, according to the lawsuit obtained by the Chicago Tribune.

    The settlement sum apparently was agreed upon when the two split at the end of last year.

    The suit, filed Monday, claims Kelly didn't deliver the first payment of $40,000 that was due Aug. 1 and notes Derrel McDavid "suffered significant harm" as a result of Kelly's breach of their agreement.

    McDavid seeks the full amount plus attorney fees and "further relief." 

    Kelly paid $300,000 when the agreement was struck, according to the lawsuit.
