R. Kelly will not be getting out jail tonight.
The disgraced singer’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, told NBC Chicago that he does not expect Kelly to post bond today. Greenberg told The AP that Kelly is capable of paying but said others have to act for him and the coordination is complicated because Kelly is behind bars.
Goldberg said he expects Kelly to be released in a day or two.
During Saturday’s hearing, his bond was set at $1 million.
Kelly surrendered to police Friday night after he was charged with 10 counts of sexual abuse, each carrying a possible sentence of three to seven years in prison.
Two of R. Kelly’s girlfriends, Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, sat in the courtroom for the singer’s hearing on Saturday and had questions hurled their way as they walked from the courthouse moments after the hearing was over.
Both girls have claimed to be in consensual relationships with the hip-hop star, despite their families believing they have been brainwashed into joining Kelly’s alleged sex cult.
