R. Kelly Denied Release Yet Again!


It looks like R. Kelly's hopes of getting out have been squashed yet again.

According to reports, a Chicago federal judge shut down Kelly's latest request to get out. The singer claimed that he was attacked by another inmate while no one "raised a finger" or attempted to come to his aid.

In regards to the August beat down, the judge said "this single isolated incident does not suggested that the Bureau of Prisons is incapable of safely housing Mr. Kelly.

On Wednesday, the St. Louis couple arrested for waiving guns at BLM protestors appeared in court to plead not guilty to two felony charges.

If convicted the couple could face 4 years behind bars, however they may be able to get some special support from the man in the White House.

It has been revealed that Donald Trump "contacts them semi-frequently" also saying "Trump has shown great interest in their case.'

Also planning to aide the couple is Missouri's governor, Mike Parson. He said the couple was merely defending their home and if they are convicted he will pardon them.
