According to multiple reports, R. Kelly moved to a new cell in solitary confinement in downtown Chicago at the Metropolitan Correctional Center after being arrested on a slew of child abuse and pornography charges. Tongues are wagging that the disgraced crooner now wants his computer. Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, told renowned Chicago columnist Michael Sneed: “He wants his computer so he can finish up the record he has been working on. My client needs to make money and he has been precluded from doing so because of his legal situation.”
Although documents that have been filed and many years of gossip throughout the music industry contend that Kelly has a severe learning disability preventing him from learning to read, Greenberg added: “Basketball got him through grammar school, and although he couldn’t read or write, he had a high school music teacher who taught him to learn music and sing before he dropped out.” Meanwhile, there is also chatter that R. Kelly’s two girlfriends, Jocelyn Savage and Azriel Clary, who reside in his plush Trump International Hotel Chicago condominium, have filed papers with the Bureau of Prisons to visit him and friends are attempting to get him a Porterhouse Steak dinner delivered from expensive Windy City restaurants Gibson’s and Tavern on Rush.
