Following the continuous spread of the novel pandemic called Coronavirus all over the world
Many Celebrities in Jail have been bidding for a release from jail.
And R.Kelly is one of those celebrities.
The Singer’s attorney had pleaded for him to be released and instead he should be placed under house.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ on Tuesday, a judge in Chicago denied the motion,
saying that the 53-year-old R&B singer remains a flight risk.
The judge said:
‘[Kelly] is currently in custody because of the risks that he will flee or attempt to obstruct, threaten or intimidate prospective witnesses.
The defendant has not explained how those risks have changed.’
As for Kelly’s fears he’ll contract Coronavirus if he remains behind bars,
the Chicago judge explained there are no confirmed cases of the virus at Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Chicago where the singer currently is.
