R. Kelly is once again claiming that he’s broke.
One of the singer’s lawyers Devereaux Cannick, told the judge that Kelly, needs to be measured for new clothing because he’s gained a significant amount of weight while in jail. “We need measurements for appropriate attire for his trial,” he said. “We’re trying to get his measurements. How can we take his size?”
He also asked that court transcripts be provided at no cost because Kelly has been unable to work for two years, according to AP News.
“His funds are depleted,” Cannick said. “I ask the court to give him daily copies of the transcripts.”
Kelly’s trial begins on Monday. He has pleaded not guilty to racketeering, bribery, coercion, enticement and sex trafficking.

Outside of the courthouse, his attorney maintained Kelly’s innocence.
“He is tired of hearing allegations,” Cannick told The Post. “He knows the truth and I think it’s very frustrating for him to hear these allegations and know the truth is out there and he just wants it to unfold.
“He believes that when folks are under oath and being examined we would be able to get to the truth.”
