R. Kelly Has Been Denied Release From Prison For A Third Time
R. Kelly is currently facing charges in Illinois, New York, and Minnesota over sexual assault, child porn, sex trafficking, and also bribery. And while waiting for Lady Justice to (hopefully) kick his ass into prison for a while, he’s behind bars, waiting for his trials to begin. But like others, R. Kelly’s team has tried to use coronavirus to get him out of prison and into house arrest, but he keeps getting denied. And he was denied again. Take the hint, bitch!
R. Kelly has been trying to get out of Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center for a while now. In March, he used COVID-19 to try to get released from the clink, but a judge denied him, and it was back to social distancing in prison. So he tried again last month. The second time he argued that coronavirus was especially dangerous to him since he’s got health woes. Prosecutors were afraid that if R. Kelly was released, he would try to intimidate witnesses in his case but he promised he wouldn’t do that. He also spit out another load of bullshit by claiming he’s not a flight risk because he owes too much money to the IRS. A judge called bullshit on each and every one of those arguments and he was denied yet again.
Believing he could fly, believing he could touch the sky, R. Kelly decided to give it another go. This time his legal team argued he was possibly diabetic and that put him even more at risk for coronavirus. Well, Page Six says that a judge has come back with a decision. A federal judge ruled he’s still a flight risk, he can shove the prediabetes reason up his ass, and he’s a danger to the community and so he can stay in prison. Judge Ann Donnelly, who denied all his other requests for release, wrote:
“I do not agree that a diagnosis of prediabetes presents a compelling reason for the defendant’s release. While the CDC has identified diabetes as a risk factor for COVID-19, the same is not true for prediabetes, a condition that affects nearly one in three American adults.”
Meanwhile, Variety says Ludacris name-dropped R. Kelly in his new song The Silence of the Lambs with Lil Wayne which he previewed during an Instagram live battle with Nelly. The line goes:
“I love R. Kelly but around my daughters I’m not comfortable.”
He apparently also referenced Bill Cosby rapping about “Mr. Huxtable.”

R. Kelly needs to stop bitching and moaning. I mean, it could be worse. At least he’s not stuck in the prison that is Ellen DeGeneres’ opulent mansion. Now that would be torture.
