Disgraced singer and accused sex trafficker R. Kelly didn’t appear in court on Thursday after refusing transport, according to reports. While the court proceedings hummed along, the Cook County Judge Lawrence Flood wanted answers as to why Kelly was a no-show. Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jennifer Gonzalez told Judge Flood, “The defendant was to be brought to court today. That was all worked out. The sheriffs were going to be bringing him over, […] As I understand it, he refused transport and so that is why the defendant is not before your honor today,”

Despite Gonzalez’s claim, Kelly’s current lawyer Steve Greenberg said that was “not 100-percent true” but failed to elaborate on what that entailed. “I don’t want to discuss matters that I discussed with the U.S. Marshals Service in open court,” said Greenberg before adding, “Suffice it to say, the Marshal Service says that moving Mr. Kelly is a large undertaking.”
