R Kelly’s lawyers have complained that the singer is only allowed to see one of his girlfriends at a time while he is held in jail on sex crime charges.
Kelly’s attorney filed for a motion on Monday complaining that only one person unrelated to the singer is allowed to visit him at one time over 90 days – so just one of two previous live-in girlfriends at a time can see him.
The motion, filed by attorney Steven Greenberg in US District Court in New York, also asked the judge to reconsider and grant him bail, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The motion states: ‘His visits are severely restricted; 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, and after 90 days he is required to switch.
‘No other friends or professional colleagues are allowed to visit. That is not right.’
His lawyer also complained the R Kelly should be released from prison on health grounds, with the motion stating he is ‘anxious’ and suffering from an untreated hernia and numbness in one of his hands.
