R. Kelly believes he can fly - on a private jet to Dubai. However, the announcement has been since-deleted for unknown reasons.

Kelly faces 10 counts of criminal sex abuse in Cook County for allegedly abusing four young women, three of whom were underage at the time. After being released on bond the alleged abuser was forced to hand over his passport.

Cash-strapped R&B singer R. Kelly wants a judge to let him travel to the Middle East to perform several concerts, saying he has struggled to get work in the US since his February arrest on sex-abuse charges.

Kelly's lawyer, Steve Greenberg, plans to discuss the motion during Kelly's scheduled court appearance Friday. Although after his last hearing he wasn't allowed to leave IL.

As a effect of the #muteRKelly movement and the adjoining Lifetime documentary bearing the singer's name, many radio stations and concert bookers across the United States have barred him from garnering any proceeds from his music. But he found interest to perform overseas.
