R Kelly denied bail as inmate who attacked him claims he was made to do so by government

Life has taken a terrible turn for R Kelly the past few years. The R and B singer who was at a time the biggest thing in world music has seen his star wade and fall after sexual abuse allegations that have haunted him the last 2 decades.

Last year, the musician was jailed without bail awaiting trial on several dozen counts of state and federal sexual misconduct charges in Illinois, Minnesota and New York. He has appealed his detention without bond six times.

But his new bail attempt has also been denied after he was allegedly beaten while at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago.

Three judges in the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit handed down their decision on Tuesday, ruling that a lower court was justified in keeping Kelly locked up without bail.

The panel affirmed the district court’s determination that Kelly poses a flight risk and that his release could endanger the community.

Kelly, 53, was attacked by a gang member, Jeremiah Shane Farmer who violently ambushed him, stomping him on his head and has confessed to the attack.

Farmer revealed that the Federal government had made him do it in a motion titled: ‘The Government Made Me Attack R-Kelly.’

He explained that he ‘forced’ to attack the singer ‘in hopes of getting spotlight attention and world news notice to shed light on the government corruption,’ according to court documents obtained by The Chicago Tribune.

R Kelly denies getting Aliyah a fake ID

 

Singer R. Kelly on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to charges he bribed to pay for a fake ID for an unnamed female a day before he married R&B singer Aaliyah, then 15 years old, in a secret ceremony in 1994.

Kelly entered the not guilty plea via video from Chicaago where he is in jail on several criminal charges..

The not guilty plea comes after a new charge filed earlier this month in which R Kelly is accused of conspiring with others by paying a bribe in exchange for a “fraudulent identification document” for someone identified only as “Jane Doe” on Aug. 30, 1994.

A day later, Kelly, then 27, married Aaliyah in a secret ceremony he arranged at a hotel in Chicago. The marriage was annulled months later because of her age. Aaliyah died in a plane crash in 2001 at age 22.
