R. Kelly was allegedly attacked by a fellow inmate at a Illinois jail. The scandalous singer’s attorneys are seeking his release due to this incident.
Doug Anton, an attorney for Kelly, said the U.S. Attorney’s Office informed them that Kelly was on his bed in his cell on Tuesday at Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center when another inmate came in and started to punch him.
Guards at the federal facility stopped the assault almost immediately. Kelly did not sustain any injuries and X-rays did not reveal any fractures.
“It is unfortunately true. Another inmate that had an issue with lockdown, got upset and simply attacked Robert,” Anton told Billboard.
“I spoke to him and he is not OK,” he added. “He is not doing well.
This even more reason why he needs to be released. They cannot protect him in the facility.”
In 2019, the singer was arrested on 10 charges of criminal sexual abuse tied to allegations that he sexually abused four women, including three minors.
