R Kelly's lawyers have complained that the singer is only allowed to see one of his girlfriends at a time while he is held in jail on sex crime charges.
The singer, 52, has been detained in Chicago since July after being refused bail. He also faces charges in New York on a racketeering scheme to kidnap and sexually abuse girls.
Kelly's attorney filed for a motion on Monday complaining that only one person unrelated to the singer is allowed to visit him at one time over 90 days - so just one of two previous live-in girlfriends at a time can see him.
The motion, filed by attorney Steven Greenberg in US District Court in New York, also asked the judge to reconsider and grant him bail, according to the Chicago Tribune.
R Kelly's lawyers have complained that the singer is only allowed to see one of his girlfriends at a time while he is being held in jail on federal sex crimes charges.
The motion states: 'His visits are severely restricted; presently, he is only allowed one unrelated person to visit.
'In other words, although he lives and has lived with two lady friends, only one of them is allowed to be on his visiting list, and after 90 days he is required to switch.
'No other friends or professional colleagues are allowed to visit. That is not right.'
Even if the New York judge grants bail, Kelly must also get the Chicago judge to agree to bail before he could be released.
It comes after a judge in the singer's Illinois sexual assault case has refused to give $100,000 in bail money back to a woman who paid it in February to secure his release from jail.
Judge Lawrence Flood said papers that Valencia Love, 47, signed clearly indicated she could lose the money.

A judge in R. Kelly's (pictured in court on Tuesday) Illinois sexual assault case has refused to give $100,000 in bail money back to Valencia Love, 47, who paid it in February to secure the singer's release from jail
Love's lawyer, John Collins, said in court Tuesday that she didn't know when she paid 10 per cent of a $1 million bond that Kelly would be charged federally and land in federal jail.
Collins said Love now fears losing all the money as charges against Kelly stack up.
The judge then read sections of papers Love signed warning the bond money could be used for Kelly's legal fees and that she may never see it again.
Flood also denied a motion to increase the singer's bond after prosecutors requested to have Kelly's bond increased to reflect the additional charges he now faces in other states.
DailyMail.com first identified Love as the woman who posted the $100,000 for the singer in late February.
