R. Kelly was allegedly beaten up by a fellow inmate in prison, and now his attorney is demanding his release.

R&B singer R. Kelly was reportedly on the receiving end of a beatdown in the detention facility where he is being held. Kelly, who has been incarcerated for over a year now, got a rude awakening in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago. According to TMZ, Kelly was on his bed in his cell when an inmate walked in and started pounding on him.

It is not clear how the fight actually ended, whether it be the intervention of guards or fellow inmates, but the publication also reported that the altercation did not last long. The inmate who allegedly assaulted R. Kelly was reportedly angry about the prison going on lockdown several times, which was oftentimes a result of the R. Kelly protests outside the facility.
