Disgraced singer R. Kelly has been moved to general population after spending weeks in solitary confinement.
According to Page Six, Kelly was transferred out of a solitary housing unit Tuesday following an emergency motion from his attorneys saying their client had been unfairly treated behind bars because he was a celebrity.
"Defendant stated that the MCC staff told him that he could 'try it [general population] in a couple of days to see what it looked like, but they can't guarantee nothing,'" prosecutors wrote.
"You know, and that's why, I was like, hmmm, too many people up on you and I done seen too many movies, you know," Kelly reportedly said during a recorded phone call.
His lawyer Steven Greenberg maintains that Kelly had no "meaningful interaction" with humans.
"Once [prison officials] could assure his safety it was time to move him," Greenberg said. "He has been a model inmate and should be treated with an appropriate level of respect and privilege, not as if he has misbehaved."
Kelly is facing four sex crimes charges involving minors in three different states, including federal indictments in Illinois and Brooklyn.
