R. Kelly was attacked by an inmate at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago by a report from news media. The fight took place after an inmate got frustrated with the constant lockdowns caused by R. Kelly’s fans. Last weekend that people had been marching in the streets for his freedom, stationing outside of the prison facility and screaming for his release.

A new report by TMZ claims that the disgraced singer was beaten up by an inmate because of the numerous lockdowns they have had to endure in recent weeks, all because Kelly’s supporters have been protesting outside of the facility.

According to the report, Kelly was jumped in his cell while sitting on his bed. Apparently, an inmate just started swinging on him, beating the hell out of the 53-year-old.

The fight allegedly did not last long. As of right now, it’s unclear if it was broken up by another inmate or by a guard. Kelly was reportedly seen by a doctor, who confirmed that he did not suffer any serious injuries or broken bones.

The singer’s attorney has put a statement questioning concerning the incident in a tweet.

“Yesterday we were told that an inmate had attacked R Kelly at the MCC in Chicago. We received conflicting reports as to the extent of his injuries,” tweeted R. Kelly’s attorney. “We have not been provided any information from the jail, nor has Mr. Kelly called. We are hopeful that he was not seriously injured. Regardless, it is time to release Mr. Kelly. The government cannot ensure his safety, and they cannot give him his day in court. We should not incarcerate people indefinitely because we cannot provide them with due process!”
