R. Kelly sues prison after being placed on suicide watch

The I Believe I Can Fly hitmaker, real name Robert Sylvester Kelly, was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Wednesday after being found guilty of racketeering and violating an anti-sex trafficking law by leading a scheme to recruit women for sex. His attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, claimed on Friday that the singer had been placed on suicide watch at Brooklyn's Metropolitan Detention Center for "purely punitive reasons." "My partner and I spoke with Mr. Kelly following his sentencing. He expressed that he was mentally fine."
