Disgraced singer, R. Kelly’s currently sits behind bars after he was hit with federal charges earlier this month. Considered a flight risk, Kelly was not granted bail by the judge, even though he wrote a letter pleading for his release. To help his cause, the Kelly’s team continues to say that he isn’t a danger to the community or a flight risk.

According to The Blast, the singer also made sure to address the allegations of reportedly giving one of his alleged victims an STD without stating that he had herpes. “Currently there is zero evidence that Robert has herpes, knew he had herpes, or knew he could have herpes and recklessly conducted himself,” the letter states. “ZERO evidence exists.”

Kelly’s team also claimed that the government somehow illegally obtained the singer’s medical files to back up 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.”
