CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 17: Singer R. Kelly appears during a hearing at the Leighton Criminal Courthouse on September 17, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. Kelly is facing multiple sexual assault charges and is being held without bail.

I’m surprised it’s taken this long but R. Kelly got beat up in prison. It happened on Wednesday when apparently an inmate had gotten fed up over certain lockdowns and restrictions that are in place because of Kelly so he got into his cell and jumped him. Word is everytime there is a “pro R Kelly” protest they lock down the prison and when that happens, inmates don’t get access to their allowance, they can’t shower among other things. There were no major injuries in the fight but Kelly’s lawyer is now tryin’ to use this to get him out early saying there’s no way they can safely protect him.   Kelly is awaiting trial on a series of child sex charges and has repeatedly asked to be released citing safety concerns. He’s been moved to solitary confinement for the immediate future.
