R. Kelly Says There’s ‘Zero’ Evidence He Has Herpes

R. Kelly is still working on a plan to get out of the slammer. This time he’s trying to prove that he’s not a flight risk or a danger to the community. He’s using the example that he never gave any of his alleged victims an STD and has never had one to prove that he is not a danger.

According to The Blast, the disgraced singer’s attorney recently filed a long letter to the judge in his ongoing criminal federal case, asking to be released from custody, or at least granted bail. “Currently there is zero evidence that Robert has herpes, knew he had herpes, or knew he could have herpes and recklessly conducted himself,” the document states. “ZERO evidence exists, his team added.”

As we previously reported, the allegation of herpes was made by Faith Rodgers, who has two lawsuits against the singer, and actively cooperated with federal officials during the investigation of Kelly, the news site reports. The singer’s legal team also states that Kelly should be release because prosecutors only have from a “disgruntled groupie who alleges she has herpes and got it from Robert.” It was also said that his accuser has allegedly not provided “one scintilla of evidence” to support her claims.

In addition to that, the R&B singer’s team also suggests that the government may have illegally obtained Kelly’s medical records in an effort to validate the herpes claims.

“The government alludes to having Robert’s medical records that they believe may nor may not demonstrate that he too may have herpes, but they did not disclose if they properly and/or legally procured same, if they have factually and scientifically established it’s the same strain of herpes, or who had it first,” the letter states.
