Singer R Kelly is not giving up on his bid to get out of jail on bond even after his previous pleas were denied.
Kelly has made yet another plea to the judge to let him out of jail, but this time he claims he has proof he is at risk of contracting COVID-19.
According to reports by TMZ, his lawyer filed documents asking the judge to release his client pending his trial.
In the documents obtained by TMZ, the lawyer claimed the Bureau of Prisons failed to disclose his client’s medical report from March showing he is “likely diabetic.”
From the documents, the lawyer claimed Kelly has high cholesterol and high blood pressure thus leaving him a vulnerable position to catch COVID-19 while in prison at MCC Chicago.
The judge is yet to make a decision on whether to release the singer after two failed attempts.
