R. Kelly Moved To General Population In Chicago Prison

On Tuesday, officials transferred R. Kelly from the Metropolitan Correctional Center’s Special Housing Unit to the downtown jail’s general population. It was a move requested by the embattled singer.

It was previously reported that Kelly had asked to be removed from solitary confinement because of the “lack of human interaction.” Initially, authorities were worried that other inmates would try to hurt the Grammy Award-winner, but Kelly’s believes he will be fine— even despite telling someone in a phone call after his July 18 arrest that “he wasn’t sure if he wanted to go to general population ‘because if I go to population, it’s…I’m just up on everybody and everybody’s up on me, and I’m trying to figure out how to trust that or whatever. But, you know, for right now, I’m in the SHU,’” prosecutors quoted.

It was said that Kelly has been warned that they can’t guarantee that nothing will happen, and apparently Kelly is ok with that. He is currently facing federal sex crime charges in both New York City and Chicago. Kelly is due back in federal court in Chicago today on those charges.

Kelly’s attorney said they will ask the judge to release him on bond again even though that request has been denied twice.
