R. Kelly is placed on suicide watch in New York jail – Lawyer

According to his attorneys, R. Kelly, a convicted sexual predator and former R&B star who was sentenced to 30 years in prison earlier this week, has been placed on suicide watch at the Brooklyn jail where he is being held.

Kelly was put on the watch by jail guards as punishment, according to her attorney Jennifer Bonjean, who called the facility a “gulag.”

Mr. Kelly’s Eighth Amendment rights were violated when he was put on suicide watch for purely punitive reasons. Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice who is also detained at the Sunset Park jail, was recently subjected to the strict terms of suicide watch as a result of a policy adopted by MDC, according to a statement released by Bonjean.

MDC Brooklyn is managed in a gulag-like manner. Following his sentencing, Mr. Kelly spoke with my partner and me. He said he was mentally sound and only expressed worry that MDC might put him on suicide watch despite the fact that he wasn’t suicidal, she continued.

Kelly responded by suing the facility, alleging he had been mistakenly placed on suicide watch.

Kelly argued that the monitor was mandated “solely for punitive purposes” and because he was a “high-profile” prisoner, according to a complaint made in Brooklyn federal court.

The disgraced singer asserted that “harsh conditions” that led to “serious mental distress” and constituted to cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution had been applied to him.

Although the docket shows Kelly is requesting a staggering $100 million, Kelly is seeking unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
