R. Kelly’s lawyers are claiming the singer was beaten up in jail and nobody raised a finger to help him. It’s part of a new court filing as part of their continuing effort to get Kelly released.
According to CNN, Kelly’s legal team say the video clip shows the attacker “roamed a great distance within the MCC before carrying out that act, without any opposition. It is undisputed that, as a result, Mr. Kelly has suffered significant physical and psychological injuries.”
“An unresolved issue remains as to whether MCC personnel encouraged, and then allowed, a beating of Mr. Kelly to take place,” wrote Michael Leonard, a lawyer for R. Kelly. “That alone merits an evidentiary hearing.”
