R. Kelly is reportedly fearful of catching the coronavirus and according to his attorney, has been practicing social distancing while in prison.
"I think it's fair to say that he's trying to follow the same advice as the rest of us, and be smart, and you know, stay away from others," said Kelly's attorney, Steve Greenberg to Vulture magazine. "He's practicing whatever level of social distancing you can practice in jail."
"He's concerned because he's in probably the worst possible situation, in terms of social distancing, that you could be in," Greenberg also said.
Coronavirus has hit several prisons across the country. Convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein reportedly tested positive for the virus in prison last week. But behind bars, there's really nowhere else to go except to stay in a cell to yourself.
"He is not in isolation, nor has he asked to be put in any isolation. He generally stays in his cell as much as possible, so that's sort of like the rest of us who are living at home," he said. "I don't know that you can totally isolate."
