R. Kelly got his wish to be moved from solitary confinement to general population in an Illinois federal lockup.

The troubled singer/songwriter was arrested on July 11 and charged with child sex abuse, child p0rnography and obstruction of justice.

U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber granted Kelly's lawyer's request to move Kelly to general population at a federal jail.

Kelly had complained that he was bored and unfairly being held in solitary confinement.

But jail officials argued that Kelly previously refused to move to general population. They also noted that he had a cellmate for several weeks after initially refusing a cellmate.

Kelly's attorneys are still asking a judge to reconsider a ruling that he be held without bail until his trial next year.

Kelly's former live-in girlfriends Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23, are raising funds to hire high-powered attorney Tom Mesereau, who successfully defended Michael Jackson.

Kelly's current attorneys want him moved to a "secure facility" with Clary and Savage as his roommates.

His trial is scheduled for April 2020.

    He full of shyt. At first he asked to be put in seclusion because he thought he was in a damned hotel where he could order steaks, champagne and use a laptop. When reality set in he went "oh shyt lemme out of here". Now he's trying to twist it and say they put him in seclusion as punishment. Fool if only you could read you'd know how stupid you sound. Oh wait. Hold the toilet seat, he can read. His ass be lion about not reading. Another one of his trick mode plans. Boy bye and bye.

    Some people have comfort animals; he has comfort hoes. I get it! LOL I jest...

    Wait what? He actually made that request?

    Kelly's current attorneys want him moved to a "secure facility" with Clary and Savage as his roommates.

    "Too damn funny"...I know this is some shade or a joke...because his lawyers are not rookies..so I know they did not make this request.

  • Starburst

    If he does decide to marry one watch what will happen. Jealousy will arise and then all the beans will be spilled. All things will be revealed about the threesome relationship.

  • dontgetblocked

    Kelly will get some time. They're pulling out his marriage to Aliyah. He has himself to blame for videotaping the encounters.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's what the writeup says above. I'm assuming it's accurate.

  • WhoKnew

    I think they are lesbians and are smashing each other. As far as knowing he's a pedo. They know. And I think if the law were to look into their whereabouts during some of these pedo seshes you will find they were there and they were complicit.

  • dontgetblocked

    I think his charges will make him a target.

  • dontgetblocked

    The teachers ate that mess.

  • Starburst

    I can't understand why Aaliyah's family won't speak out about Kelly. Probably they could've saved young lives from molestation, STDs and mental anguish. And if there is a confidentiality agreement how long is it in enforcement?

  • Bree

    Why did Robert want to be in solitary confinement in the first place? He had no reason to fear if he's done nothing wrong. General population is no joke. I remember my mom telling me my uncle use to fight men off of him while he was away. They would have to throw him in the hole because he would beat people up.

  • WhoKnew

    Oh, I missed that last paragraph. Wow. This dude really does think he is entitled.

  • Bree

    That's probably because Aaliyah was in the care of her uncle as far as her career and he and others forged this union. So many people in the industry are hooked up so they can be the next power couple or next cute couple. This is one of the reasons celebrity marriages don't last.

  • Starburst

    Exactly!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Um sure it’s a law out there somewhere this falls under sew they can lock dey asses up

  • Starburst

    I forgot she was in the care of her uncle. Her uncle is slimy.

  • Alextra Ballard

    She die from some form of Cancer

  • Bree

    Wow! So sad losing a parent. Trina just said she had issues she was dealing with that were bigger than her career. Something told me she was speaking about her mother. Condolences and prayers to her.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think R is too much of a sex freak to go celibate the rest of his life. He's gonna have a rough time in prison, since I think he'll probably end up getting what amounts to a life sentence. SMH. And just think how many GROWN women on the outside would have been willing to do whatever he wanted... but he couldn't stay away from the young girls. ? Now he's going to be stuck with a bunch of stinky nigros behind bars the rest of his life.

  • chan chan

    Who cares

  • Bree

    Very much so. He was another Matthew Knowles.

    So many people are willing to sell their daughters to the highest bidder.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Ain nobidy studn Kellz ...throw his nasty asz in General Pop....they will handle him

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Not all of them. I've never been in jail myself, thank God. But I had a buddy who did a couple years in prison and he insisted nobody touched him, simply because of how he carried himself. I believe him.. because always had this "dont mess with me" vibe where he'd probably kill someone with his bare hands if they ever tried something like that. Predators always scope out their prey... so they can sense who they can try it with, and who not to mess with.

  • KarmaBackAround

    Im sure he'll have some fans, but most folk are up on his news and i think they gonna tear his ass up

  • MsSapphire9800

    Aliyah has been decease for about 17 years...why wait until now...they are using her name to build their case. If they felt it was a crime...why they didn't prosecute him back in the 90's when it happen. Her parents has already said it was not true...the uncle is denying it. She is not here to defend her name...so most of it will be hearsay.

  • WhoKnew

  • MsSapphire9800

    If he did...they have been compensated...trust.

  • Bree

    I think they should stop tarnishing the legacy Aaliyah rid build while she was here. Unfortunately, her time here with us was cut short. I'm not saying her "image" needs to be protected because the things were reported when she was living had no major affect on her career. She still crossover which was what she was created to do. This is why you NEVER mix business with pleasure. It never works out and you become the laughing stock after it is all said and done. Aaliyah is deceased, we need to stop resurrecting a dead situation.

I mean...these women are willing to forego their own freedom to sit in a jail cell with him? Also, his attorneys have the absolute gall to ask the court if this would be ok?

    I think so too. I strongly believe somebody is out of R. Kelly's blood. Somebody is mad at him I don't know him, and I would never vouch for someone who has harmed others. His crimes are allegedly from the past. Somebody wants him dead, because s/he didn't get what they wanted.

    I never said MK didn't. I was referencing that Aaliyah was under the care of her uncle, he was her handler, just like MK was DC4/3's handler. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    Because they are looking to give him 10 life sentences, he might as well, get comfortable, and embrace the supernatural grace (undeserved kindness) of God, if he is to survive, over the long haul!
