R. Kelly now placed on suicide watch

R/B singer, R. Kelly placed on suicide watch following his racketeering conviction.

Disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly was on suicide watch following his conviction on racketeering charges in New York, according to his lawyer who told a federal judge in Chicago on Wednesday.

In a Hollywood Unlocked report after a jury found Kelly guilty three weeks ago, attorney Steve Greenberg confirmed the U.S. Bureau of Prisons placed the singer on suicide watch for some time but that has since been lifted.

Although Greenberg did not say that Kelly had expressed any actual desire to harm himself, it was noted that placing a convicted prisoner under increased monitoring is common in the federal prison system.
