R. Kelly believes the only person who can help him right now is Michael Jackson’s attorney. However, it’s going to cost him a lot of money.

TMZ reports:

Kelly met with famed lawyer Tom Mesereau — who beat the rap for Michael Jackson back in 2005. We’re told after the 4-hour meeting, Kelly was in hook, line, and sinker. We’re told Mesereau hasn’t agreed to rep Kelly — at least not yet — but it could very well happen.

The singer isn’t really making any money at the moment, so funds are pretty tight. His team is currently brainstorming on ways to raise money to hire Mesereau.
