R. KELLY FILES MOTION TO BE RELEASED FROM JAIL BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

Just like everyone else behind bars, celebrities are looking for a way out because of the global Covid-19 pandemic, which has already affected over a half million people around the world and almost 22,000 have already succumbed to the virus.

R. Kelly is the latest of the incarcerated celebs to “cry freedom”, filing a motion today (March 26) to be released from Chicago’s MCC facility, where the disgraced R&B singer fears he’s at a higher risk of contracting the contagious virus.

Steven Greenberg, Kelly’s lawyer, says that social distancing is virtually impossible in jail and complains that the hand sanitizer in the facility is for “staff only.”
