R Kelly can’t seem to catch a break lately. He seems to be having a really tough time sticking out his jail time awaiting his next trial at the Metropolitan Correctional facility in Chicago.
He was rushed to North Shore hospital yesterday to undergo an emergency surgery on his hernia, forcing him to miss yet another court date.
He was immediately transported right back to jail following the procedure.
“He was limping when I visited him at the MCC [Metropolitan Correctional Facility] and he showed me the result of his surgery- three major stomach incision – and I don’t think he’d had much time to recover,” his attorney Shady Yassin told the Chicago Sun Times.
Kelly’s attorney filed documents back in September detailing the health issues he was experiencing, including numbness in his hands, anxiety and the hernia. “He is now taking pain medication following surgery and jail physicians are looking into his complaints of numbness, which they told him could be nerve damage,” his other lawyer Steve Greenberg told the Times. Yassin added that Kelly can’t partake in his favorite activities since his surgery but has been remaining active since being behind bars.
“He is still in recovery, so he can’t play basketball…but he had been taking meditation classes, attending church on Sunday and participating in church activities. He is NOT just sulking in his cell. He is trying to be positive. All this negative publicity has taken its toll on him. And he talks frequently about wanting to have a relationship with his children.”
Kelly’s trial is soon coming regarding aggravated sexual abuse charges where he is accused of trying to force his former hair dresser (Lanita Carter, AKA “LC”) to perform oral sex on him back in 2003. He’s also made a song about the alleged harrassment, entitled ‘Hair Braider’.
After allegedly beating up R. Kelly’s other girlfriend, Azriel Clary,22 on January 8, Jocelyn Savage,24 got arrested. Her mugshot taken by Chicago PD. The incident took place at R Kelly’s condo on the 48th floor of the Trump tower, located in Chicago. Both Clary and Savage lived together, awaiting their shared Sha Boinka lover.
She turned herself into authorities on Thursday and plead not guilty to domestic battery after being accused of attacking Clary.
However, since the fight with Clary, Jocelyn has reunited with her family after a three year hiatus.
According to inside sources, Gerald Griggs the lawyer for Savage’s parents disclosed that his clients ( Savage’s parents) secretly made their way into a holding chamber in Chicago’s courthouse on Thursday, January 9.
After meeting with her parents for thirty minutes, she was given their contract information and is reported to be seeing them more frequently moving forward.
According to TMZ, R. Kelly’s lawyer filed documentation to the courts, stating that Mr. Bump n Grind is suffering from numbness in one of his hands, anxiety, and an untreated hernia.
“Although he lives and has lived with two lady friends, only one of them is allowed to be on the visiting list, and after 90 days he’s required to switch”, Greenberg said.
The woman who is available currently for visits is Azriel Clary.
Also stated in the documentation, R. Kelly promises not to contact or intimidate any witnesses.
His lawyer does take issue with the judge not disclosing the plaintiffs in the case. The lawyers are really reaching trying to get this man out of jail. And ummm…..nope. Try again…or not. The judge currently has not made a decision.
Last month R. Kelly’s lawyer, Steve Greenberg participated in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times , saying his “soft spoken” client, who is “basically illiterate” can’t read his fan mail to keep his spirits up.
Greenberg says R. Kelly knows a few words and can sound other words out. Greenberg also told the publication that he was trying to get Kells computer access to finish working on music he wants to release soon.
R. Kelly wants to come out and play with the other inmates. After being places in solitary confinement for his own protection, his lawyer, Stephen Greenberg addressed the judge on Wednesday to end the pied pipers solitary confinement.
According to paperwork, his lawyer claims reasons are:
- The client has no meaningful interaction with other people
- No fresh air
- No rec time
- No TV time
- It allowed to shower 3 times a week
- Only allowed to make one 15 minute call per month
Wait a minute.
But bruh!? Isn’t that what solitary confinement is all about?
Anyhoo, Greenberg also insisted that Mr. Homie Lover Friend hasn’t violated any prison rules and that he hasnt been convicted of a crime and that his current living situation is takin a toll on his physical and mental health
