R. Kelly complains that only one girlfriend at a time can visit him in jail

Lawyers for R. Kelly have asked a federal judge in New York to reconsider his decision to hold the embattled R&B star without bond on sweeping racketeering charges filed there, arguing the case against him is weak and that he poses no danger to the community.

The 11-page motion filed in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn on Monday was the latest move in a long-shot bid for Kelly to be sprung from jail while he awaits trial in three different jurisdictions stemming from his alleged sexual abuse of underage girls.

The filing revealed for the first time that federal authorities searched Kelly’s home at Trump Tower in Chicago and seized his cellphone and computers after his arrest in July on separate federal indictments filed here and in New York.

In asking that Kelly be held without bond, prosecutors in Brooklyn told a federal magistrate judge in July that the singer directed others to send threatening letters to potential witnesses warning them that they could be “subjected to physical harm” if they cooperated against him.
