R.Kelly has been in jail since July and has only been seen during his court appearances. Kelly was arrested on federal sex crime charges in Chicago while facing similar charges in New York and Minnesota. 

TMZ reports that Kelly claims that has been suffering from various health issues since being incarcerated. According to his lawyer, Steve Greenberg, the singer has not received any medical attention or treatment and also reports that his confinement is stifling. 

The singer’s list of health issues includes anxiety, an untreated hernia, and numbness in his hands. Due to these health conditions, Greenberg is requesting that his client be released from jail and states that he is not a flight risk.
