R. Kelly is determined to get out of jail, and he'll do whatever it takes to do just that, even if it means switching up his legal team.
The incarcerated singer reportedly met up with Attorney Tom Mesereau, the lawyer who defended Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson during their own court cases. Mesereau is undoubtedly one of the most powerful and successful criminal defense lawyers in the US, so it comes with no surprise that Kelly rang him up.
The attorney is currently in Chicago, meeting with Kelly who is facing sex crimes in different jurisdictions including New York Federal, Minnesota State, Illinois State, and Illinois Federal.
Mesereau has done miracles in the courtroom even in the most obvious cases, as he got Robert Blake acquitted of murdering his wife, and Michael Jackson of child molestation back in 2005.
While the attorney has not yet officially joined the case, it seems to be going that way if Kelly is ready to pay up.
Of course, adding Mesereau to his team will be another blow on his financials, especially since he's been struggling to make money.
In fact, his current lawyer, Steve Greenberg, shares that his client has actually been requesting a laptop in his cell for him to be able to continue writing music to rake in all the funds he needs.
“He [Kelly] wants his computer so he can finish up the record album he has been working on. My client needs to make money and he has been precluded from doing so because of his legal situation," Greenberg said of the situation.
R. Kelly faces several dozen sex abuse charges, including counts of child pornography and sexual abuse on minors. The artist pled "Not Guilty" in court, and is awaiting trial in jail without bail.
