R. Kelly has been moved out of solitary confinement and into the general prison population, his attorney Steven Greenberg said on Tuesday. Not to dramatize this situation with R. Kelly but after a Lifetime docu-series and dozens of allegations against the man, it's a safe bet to say that people are counting down the days until the disgraced singer is locked up for good.

Chicago prosecutors fired off a letter following the transfer, claiming the R&B icon wanted to be in solitary in the first place.

Kelly's lawyers said last week he had been in solitary confinement in the Chicago federal jail since July, calling it "cruel and unusual punishment".

Kelly has another case of aggravated sexual assault charges involving a 17-year-old in Minneapolis, and another similar case in Cook County, Illinois. Kelly has pleaded not guilty in all the cases but the one in Minnesota, where he will be arraigned later.

But "they can't guarantee nothing", Kelly was quoted as telling the other person on the line, who was not identified in the filing. This morning, he was moved to the general population in prison and as he awaits his trial, he will stay there. He added that he wasn't overly anxious that a fellow inmate might bid to make a name for himself by attacking a celebrity.

Greenberg tells us that although R. Kelly will be in gen pop - which is normally considered more risky, especially for high-profile inmates - he claims there are going to be security measures in place that should keep his client safe.

"Kelly is still enormously popular, especially in minority communities", Greenberg said.
