R. Kelly has been behind bars since July, with plenty of court visits since. The disgraced Chicago singer was arrested on federal sex crime charges in Chicago, and is facing similiar cases in Minnesota and New York. TMZ reports that he hasn't fared too well since he's been in jail, as he's detailed various medical issues he's experienced since his incareration in newly surfaced legal documents.
Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg has claimed that his client has not received enough medical treatment in jail, and has said his confinement is "stifling." Among the issues listed are numbness in his hands, anxiety, and an untreated hernia. Greenberg has added that he believes R. Kelly is not a flight risk, and that as a result he should be freed from jail as he awaits a verdict from the Chicago and New York judges.
In speaking with TMZ, Greenberg said that one Kelly's girlfriends, Azriel Clary, is currently on the waiting list to visit him in jail. "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's required to switch," Greenberg explained. Joycelyn Savage, meanwhile, will have to wait a while until she has the opportunity to visit Kelly.
Earlier this month, a bench warrant was issued for R. Kelly after he failed to appear at his Minnesota hearing. He is facing two charges for engaging in prostitution with someone under 18 and agreeing to hire someone for sexual contact in the state.
