R&B star R. Kelly reportedly wants access to his computer while he's in jail so that he can finish his latest album.
Kelly's attorney told the Chicago Sun-Times the singer "needs to make money and he has been precluded from doing so because of his legal situation."
Steve Greenberg said Kelly has been working on a record album and wants to finish it.
A judge ordered Kelly to be transferred from Chicago to New York City for an Aug. 2 hearing on federal sex charges.
Among other accusations, prosecutors allege that the Grammy-award winner had sex with underage girls, that he filmed himself doing so and that he tried to cover it up.
A former Kelly employee, Milton "June" Brown, pleaded not guilty in Chicago on Friday to a federal charge of conspiracy to receive child pornography.
