R. Kelly Drags Aaliyah Into Another Desperate Attempt To Get Out Of Prison

By Ryan Naumann

R. Kelly is dragging his ex-Aaliyah into his new plea to get out of prison.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Kelly is back in court attempting to be released from prison on bond. In the past couple of months, Kelly has made numerous arguments for his release, all of which have been shut down.

In newly filed documents, the disgraced singer wanted to make sure the judge knew he wasn’t planning on intimidating any witnesses or obstructing justice if allowed out. In his criminal indictment, prosecutors have listed six victims they accuse Kelly of abusing over the years. Kelly says he is not a risk to obstruct justice because one of the victims is dead, who he doesn’t name but it is Aaliyah.

He says, “Jane Doe number one appears to be a deceased individual. The only other individual who has spoken or been identified regarding that allegation has been actively talking about his appearance before the federal grand jury on social media.” In regard to “Jane Doe number five”, he says that is his ex-girlfriend, Azriel Clary.

Kelly tries to trash Azriel saying, “She has, since leaving Mr. Kelly, created an active, for-profit, social media presence, requesting individuals to subscribe to her Instagram and YouTube channels, where she regularly speaks of how awful he was.”

Kelly claims these alleged victims turned on him long ago and there is no way he could turn them if he tried. The motion reads, “To the extent this court has previously been led to believe that there may be a risk of obstruction, the fact is that there is no one related to this case who would be the slightest bit receptive to any overture from the Kelly camp.” A judge has yet to rule on Kelly’s motion.

Kelly is currently locked up in MCC Chicago awaiting trial in two separate criminal cases. In his pleas to be released, Kelly says he is in danger due to his health conditions. Prosecutors fired back saying Kelly sees a prison doctor often and can work out in his cell.

Prosecutors noted Kelly had seen a doctor numerous time while at MCC Chicago. They stated, “the defendant has been seen by Clinical Director Brij Mohan, M.D., almost monthly (specifically, on January 21, 2020; February 10, 2020; March 31, 2020; and May 1, 2020), and by nurse practitioners on five occasions (January 17, 2020; March 19, 2020; March 26, 2020; April 7, 2020; and April 29, 2020). The defendant has also been seen multiple times by registered nurses this year as well.”

The docs noted Kelly, “is currently not on any chronic care meds” and does not suffer from any “chronic disease issues.” The judge wasn't persuaded.
