The R&B and hip hop singer,R. Kelly is claiming he is likely to be diabetic which puts him at a high danger of serious complications on the off chance that he contracts covid-19.
The singer’s attorney, Steven Greenberg demands for the third time that Kelly be released from prison. Eleven days prior, the judge overseeing the case denied the singer’s second request to be released from custody while awaiting trial.
The judge had previously expressed concern Kelly might intimidate witnesses if he’s allowed out of jail. Kelly addresses that in the new docs, referring to one of his former girlfriends who used to visit him regularly in jail and correspond with him.
He says during all those visits he was well aware she is one the Jane Doe victims in his case, and still never attempted to obstruct justice.
According legal documents filed by kelly Lawyer, says hs client just learned that he tested “1/10 of one point below diabetic, at the very top of the high risk category.”
hat new diagnosis coupled with the fact that Kelly is overweight and suffers from high blood pressure and cholesterol issues puts him at high risk of serious complications if infected with COVID-19, according to Greenberg.
