Following an operation to treat blood clots, incarcerated R&B singer R. Kelly has accused the Chicago Metropolitan Correctional Center medical staff of negligence and expressed that he is afraid of losing his life.
Kelly had surgery on his Achilles tendon after it was discovered in March that he was suffering from blood clots. The singer’s attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, spoke out against her client’s alleged ill-treatment and blamed the Bureau of Prisons for his ailing health.
In the reported audio of Kelly obtained by RapHouseTV, the incarcerated artiste expressed that if he should die during his time in prison, he deserves it to be of natural causes. Kelly said that he did not want to die because someone had guessed wrongly about what was wrong with his leg.
Noting that anyone would want their family members to get proper medical care in a similar situation, Kelly said that an x-ray was not conducted by the medical staff at the prison. An emotional Kelly shared that he was afraid for his life and said that animals were treated better.
The fifty-six-year-old is currently serving 31 years in prison for sex crime convictions in New York and Chicago for racketeering, sex trafficking, child pornography, and enticement.
