Brooklyn prosecutors are asking a judge in R. Kelly's sex crimes case to seal some of the "sensitive information" which, includes medical records, to expedite proceedings, according to papers last week.

No more details were given about the information, other than they are financial and medical documents. 

Meanwhile, his lawyer Steven Greenberg gave the Chicago Sun-Times an update on Kelly's stay in jail:

"I've seen him get very emotional," said Greenberg, who is defending Kelly on his child pornography and sex abuse charges in Chicago.

"He's dealing with a lot of stories that have been made up. He's not a fighter. I've seen him cry when he talks about the situation."

Greenberg added:

"He's also a spiritual guy, has a Bible with him in his cell, but he can't read it. It's basically there for comfort.

"Now he's been placed in the MCC's 'SHU' — a cell in solitary confinement away from the jail population and is constantly being moved from cell to cell. He has only the guards to talk to."

He also revealed that Kelly has been receiving fan mail, but is only able to recognize some of the words in the letters, because he cannot read or write.
