R. Kelly’s lawyer Steve Greenberg hinted that R. Kelly is having a little bit of a tough time while locked up. “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 added that R. Kelly, “has a stage persona who is used to having people around him all the time. His life in solitary is now minus TV. No radio. No music. And no books. 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 says 97% of the mail R. Kelly gets is positive. He’s been sent “more money online to buy food from the jail commissary than he’ll ever spend. Whatever food he could buy in the commissary is a far cry from his favorite steak on Rush or McDonald’s. Right now McDonald’s looks like Alinea (notably Chicago’s most upmarket eatery) to him.” His girlfriends and an uncle have visited him. They can only see him on video. Only his lawyers get to see him in person.
