TMZ reports that R. Kelly recently had a four hour meeting with Tom Mesereau, the famous lawyer who helped Michael Jackson beat child molestation charges in 2005 and helped get Robert Blake beat the murder charges against him. Mesereau hasn’t agreed to represent Kelly yet, but Kelly is reportedly sold on Mesereau.

The issue is that Kelly’s financial situation has not been strong as of late, and Mesereau is very expensive, so Kelly and his team are trying to figure out how to raise the necessary funds. If Mesereau does come aboard, attorney Raed Shalabi is also likely to join. Kelly met with Shalabi recently as well.

Kelly feels that his current lawyer, Steve Greenberg, is too concerned about getting media attention for himself.

Kelly is facing an avalanche of charges all over the country, including New York, Illinois, and Minnesota.
