“Our sources say the inmate went on the attack because he was angry about the detention facility being placed on lock down a couple of times largely due to Kelly protesters outside the jail. We’re told the fight didn’t last long, and it’s unclear if another inmate or guards broke it up. Our sources say Kelly was examined by a doctor, who determined the singer was okay…no broken bones or serious injuries,” the outlet reported.

A spokesperson for the Federal Bureau Of Prisons told TMZ they cannot comment on an individual inmate’s conditions of confinement or medical status due to privacy and safety reasons.

R. Kelly is currently incarcerated facing charges of sex-trafficking, sexual assault, and child pornography.
