Embattled singer R. Kelly reportedly recently was involved in a physical confrontation with a fellow inmate in prison.
A frustrated inmate juped and attacked the songwriter in his cell inside Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he’s awaiting trial on federal sexual abuse charges, as TMZ reports.
According to federal law enforcement sources, Kelly was sitting on his bed when another prisoner walked in his cell and began punching the artist.
The inmate was reportedly mad because the prison had been placed on lockdown several times due to R. Kelly protesters outside of the facility.
The fight didn’t last long, however. It’s unclear if another prisoner or guard broke up the fight. The 53-year-old singer was reportedly examined by a doctor and it was determined that he was fine and didn’t sustain any serious injuries.
