R. Kelly is still in prison and is still trying to use the Coronavirus pandemic as a means to secure his freedom.

After seeing the likes of Tekashi 6ix9ine and Michael Cohen find their way out of the bing and into their own homes, TMZ is reporting that Kelly’s lawyers are continuing to make the case that not only should the “I Wish” singer be let out to avoid contracting COVID-19, but that he’s also too broke to try to flee the country.

According to the report, R. Kelly’s lawyers have filed documents showing that Kelly owes Uncle Sam a whopping $1,878,737.43, hence, he has no means to really skip town should he be allowed to go home during the pandemic.
