According to reports, R. Kelly is “miserable” in jail. The singer’s lawyer—Steve Greenberg spoke with the Chicago Sun-Times and gave an update on the condition of Kelly behind bars.
Greenberg said, “I’ve seen him get very emotional.” He’s dealing with a lot of stories that have been made up. He’s not a fighter. I’ve seen him cry when he talks about the situation. He’s also a spiritual guy, has a Bible with him in his cell, but he can’t read it. It’s basically there for comfort. Now he’s been placed in the MCC’s ‘SHU’ — a cell in solitary confinement away from the jail population and is constantly being moved from cell to cell. He has only the guards to talk to.”
Greenberg spoke more on Kelly’s ability to read, saying the singer has to sound out certain words out loud while reading fan mail.
