1998 Acura RL - PS Belt Abnormal Wear

Hi everyone, i am brand new to the forum from WA state and a first time Acura/Honda owner. A few days ago i picked up a 98 RL for around 300$ and it ran well enough i could drive it home and into my garage. It has a few issues here and there.... I'm pretty sure the radiator is leaking, check engine light on for a oxygen sensor and is had a squealing sound from under the hood. I pulled the radiator out today since i plan on replacing it anyways to get a better look at the belts since i believed that was the culprit to the squealing noise. What i noticed is the whole outer edge of the PS belt is shredding itself. Its rubbing against the other pulley on the crank also causing it to pitch at a angle. the belt is sitting on the pulleys correctly as far as i can see, its sort of like the PS pump is sticking out further causing the belt to rub on the crank side. Anyone have any input on this issue and what could be causing this? Thanks in advance!
