R. Kelly is facing sex crimes in Illinois, New York and Minnesota involving underage girls and sex trafficking and has been in jail all summer long without bail. He recently filed a request to get out of jail due to health reasons, primarily numbness in one of his hands, anxiety and an untreated hernia. He’s also with the general population in jail after he was allegedly forced in solitary confinement.
A judge has now denied Kelly’s request to be released, according to TMZ. Court documents state that the government says Kelly’s a flight risk if he’s a free man. His legal team denied that as Kelly gave up his passports.
Documents also added that the government cited a reason of Kelly trying to bring his two girlfriends Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary to Dubai. Prosecutors also think Kelly is lying not going to tamper with or intimidate witnesses. They added that he “has a history of coercing women to write letters containing false and embarrassing allegations” so he can use them as blackmail.
The government is also stating that they haven’t found anything related to Kelly’s health failing and how that translates to him needing to be released. His claims of being broke are supposedly lies due to bin getting music royalties. The revenue is reportedly going to a friend’s bank account. As far as Kelly’s fate, he’s probably going to prison for a very long time.
