TMZ also reported that Kelly’s lawyers asked that the R&B singer be place on house arrest at his home in Chicago.
“The defendant is currently in custody because of the risks that he will flee or attempt to obstruct, threaten or intimidate prospective witnesses,” U.S. District Judge Ann Donnelly wrote via press release. “The defendant has not explained how those risks have changed.”
Kelly is at Chicago Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he is awaiting trial on racketeering, sexual misconduct and other charges.
Also, rapper YNW Melly recently tested positive for COVID-19 while in jail awaiting trial for double murder. He plans to file a motion to be released on house arrest.
