R. Kelly has reportedly been denied conjugal visits for when his two girlfriends visit him in jail in Chicago.

According to TMZ, the disgraced star has been denied conjugal visits, and when Joycelyn Savage and Azriel Clary do visit him, physical contact is to be minimal and limited to hugging - no inappropriate touching.

They are also prohibited from bringing him any food and treats.

MTO reported earlier this week that Kelly has been moved to general population. For the first few weeks of his incarceration, he was kept in solitary confinement. 

His girlfriends are also reportedly working hard to raise funds for the star's legal fees. According to several reports, Kelly could be looking to ditch Steven Greenberg as his lead defense lawyer and hire Tom Mesereau.

Mesereau is best known for defending the King of Pop at his 2005 child molestation trial, which ended in acquittal. He has also successfully defended Mike Tyson and Deathrow Records founder Suge Knight.
