R Kelly Complains That He Is Only Allowed To See One Of His Girlfriends At A Time As He Awaits Trial

R Kelly is facing possible life imprisonment for a string of sex crimes.

But the singer’s lawyers have complained that the Grammy-winning artist is only allowed to see one of his girlfriends at a time.

The 52-year-old has been detained in Chicago since July after being refused bail. He also faces charges in New York on a racketeering scheme to kidnap and sexually abuse girls.

Kelly’s attorney filed for a motion on Monday complaining that only one person is allowed to visit him at one time over 90 days. 

The motion, filed by attorney Steven Greenberg in US District Court in New York.

He asked the judge to change Kelly’s visiting order and grant him bail, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The motion states: “His visits are severely restricted; presently, he is only allowed one unrelated person to visit.”

“In other words, although he lives and has lived with two lady friends, only one of them is allowed to be on his visiting list, and after 90 days he is required to switch.”

“No other friends or professional colleagues are allowed to visit. That is not right.”

The trial of the “Ignition” is reportedly set to begin on Monday, April 27, 2020.

R. Kelly is currently being held in jail without bond.

He was arrested in July on a 13-count federal indictment that alleges he sexually abused underage girls and conspired to obstruct justice.
