R. Kelly Allegedly Catches Jailhouse Fade By Another Inmate Over Lockdowns

Hannah Rogers | 28 August, 2020, 04:39

The inmate was reportedly angry because the detention facility had been placed on lockdown a couple times due to Kelly protesters outside the jail.

Imprisoned illiterate R. Kelly is reportedly recovering after being attacked in prison, and we're having a fiesta.

Doug Anton, an attorney for Kelly, told CNN that the singer's legal team had been advised by the US Attorney's Office that the singer was on his bed in his cell Tuesday at Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center when another inmate came in and started to punch him.

Kelly's latest incident is the latest in the winding saga of his life since the release of Surviving R. Kelly, the documentary expose on his career and alleged abuse of women and underaged girls.

According to TMZ, the disgraced R&B star got into his first tiff behind bars when a "frustrated inmate" jumped Kelly in his cell. The Grammy-winner has been held without bond since last July.

In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, Kelly's attorney, Steven Greenberg, said: "Yesterday we were told that an inmate had attacked R Kelly at the MCC in Chicago". He also faces federal charges of child pornography and other crimes by the US Northern District of IL, where he is being held without bail. Additionally, three other men were arrested for allegedly bribing and intimidating witnesses as it related to Kelly's upcoming trial. Court docs say that in one instance, Kelly "sent a typewritten letter to a lawyer then representing Jane Doe #5, threatening to release compromising and potentially embarrassing photographs of Jane Doe #5 if she pursued her civil lawsuit against the defendant". In one incident, prosecutors claim a vehicle was set on fire in order to intimidate a woman from testifying.
