The 55-year-old musician who was recently sentenced to 30 years in prison, R Kelly, was put on restriction during his first couple of days in the federal prison in Brooklyn where he is detained.
Kelly used this to try to sue the Metropolitan Detention Center for causing him mental anguish.
This information is important when it comes to the rumours that R Kelly escaped, as he is known to still be in prison despite a lack of comments from Brooklyn MDC.
