‘SNL’ Skewers R. Kelly’s Complaints About Limited Jail Visits With Girlfriends

Saturday Night Live took a moment this weekend to mock R. Kelly and his jail visit drama.

Earlier this week, Kelly’s attorney filed an 11-page motion pleading with a federal judge to reconsider his decision to hold the singer without bail while he awaits trial.

Included in the motion was a complaint saying the strict visitation rules limiting Kelly from seeing both of his girlfriends at the same time are “not right.”

SNL “Weekend Update” co-host Colin Jost roasted Kelly for this latest turn in his legal saga.

“Lawyers for R. Kelly, who’s being held without bail, are complaining that the singer is only allowed to visit with one of his girlfriends at a time,” Jost explained.

“Worse, visiting hours conflict with the schedule at their middle school,” the comedian added in a jab at the singer for allegedly dating underage girls.

Kelly, 52, is being held at Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center. He faces kidnapping, racketeering, and child sex charges, with cases pending in Illinois, New York and Minnesota.

Before he was taken into custody, the  “I Believe I Can Fly” singer shared a condo with girlfriends Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23.

In March, the two young women sat down with Gayle King for a heated interview on CBS This Morning. Clary told King, “We both have our individual relationships with him, and we all are family all together.”

Kelly was arrested in July. He has maintained his innocence throughout his legal troubles.
