Kelly moved from solitary confinement to general population

Kelly moved from solitary confinement to general population

The embattled singer was transferred out of a solitary housing unit following an emergency motion from his attorneys who argued that Kellz was being unfairly treated behind bars due to his celebrity status and nature of his alleged crimes. He's pleaded not guilty to all allegations brought against him.

"If I go to population..." Not to dramatize this situation with R. Kelly but after a Lifetime docu-series and dozens of allegations against the man, it's a safe bet to say that people are counting down the days until the disgraced singer is locked up for good. 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.

Prosecutors however accused Kelly of wanting to be in solitary confinement, saying it was his own doing.

Yahoo Entertainment reached out to Greenberg for comment about the recorded phone call, but did not immediately receive a response. A judge in Chicago has set the federal case to begin on Apri 27, 2020.

R. Kelly is expected to appear at a status hearing a day after jail personnel moved him into the general inmate population following a complaint from his attorneys that he was being held in solitary in a restrictive section of a federal jail in Chicago.

Kelly is being held without bail, which is what Greenberg intends to fight next.

Kelly stood in court in orange jail clothes, his hands behind his back.

Supporters were sighted outside the building, while Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg, told the hearing that he and his legal team are unsure if they can mount a defence for four trials by next April.
