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.
