Steve Greenberg, Kelly's attorney found out about the incident earlier today and hasn't been provided any information per the Chicago Sun Times.


We received conflicting reports as to the extent of his injuries. We have not been provided any information from the jail, nor has Mr. Kelly called.  We are hopeful that he was not seriously injured.

Greenberg has been attempting to get Kelly out of jail now due to COVID-19 as he awaits his trial in Illinois and New York where he's also facing charges including racketeering, sexual exploitation of children and child pornography.

R. Kelly's trial date is set for October 13th.
