Kodak Black Claims He’s Can’t Meet with His Rabbi Behind Bars
Kodak Black pray for more than his release from prison … because he says he cannot have access to a rabbi to practice his Jewish religion behind bars.
Kodak’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, tells TMZ he’s gearing up to take legal action if his client hasn’t got what he says he’s been asking for months … a consultation with his own rabbi – or any rabbi, really, at this stage.
Of course, the other title here is … Kodak Black’s Jewish ??? We’re with you, and Cohen explained that the rapper identifies with the faith – even though he hasn’t converted yet. He says the federal government has gone silent on the radio about its efforts to connect with its reference rabbi.
If nothing changes, Cohen says they will take legal action for violating Kodak’s First Amendment right to practice one’s religion.
He admits that the chaplain at the Kodak facility in KY recently sent an email to say that face-to-face spiritual gatherings are being temporarily canceled due to COVID. However, Cohen says the chaplain also told him that phone calls with the rabbi shouldn’t be a problem.
Oh, and if you’re wondering why Kodak is so adamant about having access to any rabbi and a Torah, we’re told he thinks it will help his mental state. Kodak believes God has a plan for him and wants to talk it over with a pro.
The Prisons Bureau declined to comment on Kodak’s specific situation, but assured us that it is making great efforts to meet the religious needs of the inmates.
