R. Kelly says he is likely diabetic, begs to be freed from jail

RnB singer, R. Kelly is desperate to get out of jail as the singer is making yet another plea to the judge to let him out of jail, but this time he claims he has proof he is vulnerable to COVID-19.

The singer’s lawyer filed documents, obtained by TMZ, asking the judge to release his client pending his trial and claiming the Bureau of Prisons failed to disclose Kelly’s medical tests from March showing he is “likely diabetic.”

In documents, Kelly’s lawyer, Steven Greenberg also claims the singer has high cholesterol and high blood pressure, further putting him in a vulnerable position if he contracts the deadly coronavirus while penned up at MCC Chicago.

Eleven days prior, the judge overseeing the case denied the singer’s second request to be released from custody while awaiting trial.

Greenberg says Kelly just learned that he tested “1/10 of one point below diabetic, at the very top of the high-risk category.”

That 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.
