R. Kelly’s private medical records and Uber statements are in the hands of prosecutors, who are laying out the evidence they have against the disgraced singer.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, New York prosecutors are informing the judge of all the evidence they have in Kelly’s criminal case.
The court documents note they have collected voluminous flight records going back several years. The records they have are related to Kelly’s travels and those of various Jane Does.
Prosecutors also have all of Kelly’s business financial records for his R. Kelly Publishing, RSK Enterprises, and his various entertainment companies.
The docs note prosecutors have also collected credit card statements for Kelly’s associates.
They also have Kelly’s medical records, Walgreens records and “Quality Urgent Care” records.
Prosecutors obtained tons of hotel records for rooms booked for Jane Does. They have birth certificates for the alleged victims.
One of the alleged victims handed over all “text messages, pictures, emails, and audio recordings.”
Prosecutors appear to have done extensive work on the case, saying their evidence also includes Snapchat videos taken by a Jane Doe.
The evidence also includes “text messages, pictures and social media communication between Jane Doe #4 and Jane Doe #4’s friend.”
Prosecutors will be using all the evidence during Kelly’s trial.
Kelly was supposed to appear in a Cook County courtroom on Thursday but Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Gonzalez said the singer “refused transport” from the federal lockup in downtown Chicago, reports NBC News.
“The defendant was to be brought to court today. That was all worked out. The sheriffs were going to be bringing him over,” Gonzalez said. “As I understand it, he refused transport and so that is why the defendant is not before your honor today.”
Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, said the depiction of Kelly refusing transport was “not 100-percent true” but did not go into greater detail.
“I don’t want to discuss matters that I discussed with the U.S. Marshals Service in open court,” Greenberg said. “Suffice it to say, the Marshal Service says that moving Mr. Kelly is a large undertaking.”
Kelly’s next hearing is on September 17 and the judge made a point to say that Kelly needed to be there.
