Singer R. Kelly's lawyer has filed a motion in US District Court, New York to complain on the number of unrelated persons allowed to visit him at the Chicago Prison.
Kelly's attorney filed the motion arguing for release of the bond in which he bemoaned the singer's visitation privileges that allow him to be visited with only one of his girlfriends at a time.
CNN reported the singer's lawyer, Steven Greenberg, on Monday, September 30, also argued he should be released because he is not a flight risk and does not pose threat to the alleged victims.
" 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," he said.
"After 90 days he is required to switch. No other friends or professional colleagues are allowed to visit. That is not right," he added.
According to the lawyer, the singer is suffering from anxiety, an untreated hernia and numbness in one of his hands.
Kelly has been held in a Chicago area jail since July 2019, on federal sex crimes charges.
He also faces charges in New York on racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and sexual exploitation of a child.
