R. Kelly Reportedly is Asking for Permission to Leave U.S. for Shows in Dubai

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Kelly is seeking permission to fly to Dubai for a series of concerts, despite forfeiting his passport to the authorities last month.

According to the media house, the singer currently isn’t allowed to leave the state of Illinois following a bond hearing he had last month, but his lawyer Steve Greenberg confirmed with the Chicago paper today that he’s filing a motion for his travel request on a hearing on Friday. Greenberg has said that a copy of the request was handed to prosecutors earlier this week, detailing what his potential travel arrangements would be.

His lawyer added that the singer found interest in playing shows abroad, despite the countless accusations leveled against him. “He needs to be able to work like anyone else who is free on bond, and the law needs to be adaptable,” Greenberg explained, adding that he would travel with him as a “chaperone.”

Will this request be granted? We wait.
