The former king of R&B, R. Kelly, has tested positive for COVID-19.
R. Kelly is known for his amazing résumé in the music industry, such as his three Grammys for the hit song from the Space Jam, "I Believe I Can Fly". He was also a producer and songwriter.
For years R. Kelly found himself going back-and-forth to court for disturbing allegations, and in September 2021 he was found guilty of nine counts including sexual exploitation of a child, robbery, kidnapping, racketeering, and violation of Mann Act. There was even a documentary series exploring these heinous crimes called "Surviving R. Kelly".

WHAT DOES ROBERT KELLY HAVING COVID-19 MEAN FOR HIS CASE?
Recently, Robert Kelly tested positive for COVID-19, and this month he would face sentencing for the charges of which he was found guilty. He was accused of sex with underage girls, and he also allegedly bribed a state employee for a false ID so he could marry the late R&B singer Aaliyah while she was under age. R. Kelly requested an extension due to the fact of him being positive for COVID-19, and district judge Amy M. Donnelly has approved the request.
THE WORLD WILL BE WATCHING FEBRUARY 17TH, 2022
Kelly will appear in court February 17, 2022 for sentencing proceedings. Jennifer Bonjean, R. Kelly‘s lawyer, says that due to his diagnosis, Kelly has had trouble speaking with this defense team.
The song writer is facing a minimum of 10 years, and the max would be life in prison.
Just like everyone is watching the R. Kelly story, I anticipate exactly what I personally think will be the outcome. As we all know, Covid-19 can and will interfere on plenty of current events including Robert Kelly’s fate.
