R. Kelly Accuses Prison Warden Of Blocking Former Manager From Visiting Him

R. Kelly told a judge that his former manager and friend has been blocked from visiting him in prison.

According to court documents obtained by, Kelly says has been waiting on a visit from Derrell McDavid but McDavid has not been able to see the star.

“Mr. McDavid and Mr. Kelly have maintained a longstanding friendship and business relationship spanning decades before Mr. Kelly’s incarceration,” the motion reads in part.

McDavid was a co-defendant in Kelly’s criminal case out of Illinois. McDavid was accused of helping coordinate hush money payments before his 2008 trial but he was found not guilty.

Kelly’s attorney claimed the Warden at FBI Butner had “declined the request, offering the reason that Mr. David was a co-defendant in Mr. Kelly’s criminal trial.”

Kelly wants McDavid to be added to his visitor list.

“There were NO convictions on the counts in which Mr. McDavid and Mr. Kelly were charged together. Indeed, the Constitution creates a right in all criminal defendants to have their guilt decided by a jury, not a prison warden.”
