R.Kelly may be behind bars but he’s still sending messages to his fans. On Friday, celebrating his birthday behind bars, R.Kelly posted a message that included a snippet of new music with a caption that read, “Thank you God, for my Life!”
In the song, the R&B crooner expressed how his career was damaged and even though people hate him, he is still loved.
He sings, “A tsunami almost had come to wipe my career away. After 22 years of a blessed career, they had me lying in a hospital bed crying man tears.” The song continues , “Just as I many people hating me, I had so many people loving me. Let’s not forget the hood that was covering me.
Kelly then went on to say, “To everybody that be calling me, telling me what they saying about me, bringing me all this negative sh*t, y’all the ones I ain’t f***ing with.”
As previously reported, a journalist covering R. Kelly’s case reported that Judge Leinenweber has set a trial date for R. Kelly and his co-defendants for Sept. 13, 2021.
“Kelly’s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, sounds skeptical given everything going on, but agrees to set the date as long as it’s not ‘set in stone’,” Jason Meisner reported. R. Kelly’s legal team has tried numerous times to get the singer out on bond, including using COVID-19 as a reason, but they have been unsuccessful.
Even when he was attacked in jail, the judge still denied his bond. One of R. Kelly’s attorneys, Nicole Blank Becker, exclusively told the Chicago Sun Times that he lives in fear following the attack, and is “petrified and paranoid.” She continued saying that he “can’t sleep and is now afraid to leave his jail cell during the two hours he’s permitted daily to venture out. His insomnia is serious.”
“Robert is scared for his life…terrified every single day since he was beaten in his jail cell by fellow MCC inmate Jeremiah Shane Farmer a month ago,” Becker said.
For now, R.Kelly will remain behind bars until his trial date.
