R. Kelly was reportedly placed on suicide watch after being sentenced to 30 years in prison last week.
Lawyer for disgraced singer Jennifer Bonjean told CNN Kelly was scared.
“The irony of putting someone under surveillance when they’re not suicidal is that it actually does more harm,” Bonjean said. Kelly’s team has applied for a restraining order.
Kelly sued the prison.
“It’s punishment for being well known. And it’s frankly terrifying,” she said. “It’s cruel and unusual to put someone under suicide surveillance in these conditions when they don’t need it.”
“MDC-Brooklyn has a policy of punishing high-profile inmates by subjecting them to the harsh conditions of suicide surveillance even though they are not suicidal,” the lawsuit alleges.
Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence him to more than 25 years in prison. Kelly’s crimes against minors spanned decades.
Kelly’s attorneys are asking for the minimum of 10 years and asking that he be given a lighter sentence for being sexually abused as a child.
