R. Kelly Won't Stop Complaining About His Prison Treatment

By Ryan Naumann

R. Kelly is crying about the treatment he is receiving while in prison during the Covid 19 outbreak.

Vulture spoke to Kelly’s attorney, Steve Greenberg, about how Kelly is doing in prison amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

Greenberg told the outlet, Kelly is practicing “social distancing” and practicing safety precautions while locked up at MCC Chicago.

He added, “I think it’s fair to say that he’s trying to follow the same advice as the rest of us, and be smart, and you know, stay away from others. He’s practicing whatever level of social distancing you can practice in jail.”

Greenberg claims Kelly is “concerned because he’s in probably the worst possible situation, in terms of social distancing, that you could be in.”

Kelly’s lawyer claims the singer has stayed to himself for the most part in prison. However, he is being extra careful to avoid people given the outbreak. Kelly is unable to avoid people completely given he has a cellmate.

AsThe Blast previously reported Kelly is locked up in the Chicago prison awaiting trial in two separate criminal cases. He is facing 190 years in prison in his Chicago case and decades more in his New York case.


Kelly has whined about his treatment from behind bars for months. He claims he was not allowed access to candy and other items. Officials accused him of violating prison rules by communicating with others while avoiding being monitored.

Since the Coronavirus outbreak, Kelly has whined about not being able to see visitors. The only people still visiting Kelly are his lawyers and last remaining girlfriend, Joycelyn Savage. A rep for the Bureau of Prisons in Illinois confirmed all inmate visitors were suspended for 30 days.

Kelly’s upcoming arraignment was postponed due to Coronavirus causing courts to close.

Kelly’s ex-girlfriend, Azriel Clary, has been living her best life since leaving the singer in December.
