R. Kelly begs Judge to release him from solitary confinement and let him join other inmates

R. Kelly is locked up right now with no signs of him being released any time soon. The singer's been locked up in solitary confinement out of fear that he'll be harmed in Gen. Pop. The singer admitted he was happy about being separated from the other inmates out of fear that some of them might retaliate against him. That was in July and a lot has changed since including his stance on being in solitary.

It looks like R. Kelly's lost all fear of being placed in gen. pop. According to TMZ, the singer is begging the judge to release him from solitary confinement and allow him to join the rest of the inmates in general population in jail. Now, given that he's an accused preying on young girls and a celebrity at that, general population makes him an immediate target. However, he's reportedly willing to take the chance because solitary is taking a toll on his mental and physical health.

Steven Greenberg, Kells lawyer, listed off a bunch of reasons why Kells should be released from solitary -- the main one being that solitary is meant to punish inmates. Greenberg argued that Kelly is locked up without human interaction, access to sunlight and media, recreational activities or even private one-on-one visitations that aren't under surveillance.
