R. Kelly Was Placed On Suicide Watch After Guilty Verdict!!

According to reports, R. Kelly took his guilty verdict so badly that he was placed on suicide watch.

Steve Greenberg told U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber that “after he was found guilty [Kelly] was placed under suicide watch,” according to the Chicago Tribune. Greenberg made the shocking claims in court in Chicago. 

The suicide watch has been removed.

Kelly is due to stand trial there, where he is accused of 13 further sex crimes, including producing child pornography and conspiring to intimidate victims and conceal evidence. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to all charges. 


Kelly will be sentenced in May 2022 and his Chicago trial will now not begin until August 2022. Kelly was found guilty of all nine counts of sex trafficking and racketeering in New York and is facing life in prison. If he is given a long prison sentence, he as a slim chance of the cicago trial being dropped -- but it's not likely.
