This is interesting….Robert Kelly reportedly made a new friend while locked up. As reported on news sources, disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly and the 2022 Brooklyn subway shooter, Frank James, are supposedly friends in jail. Before being locked up at Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, N.Y, they didn't know each other. The two men are considered "high-risk inmates," so they're housed in the same unit. They eat and go to recreation together. However, they're not in the same cell. R. Kelly's attorney, Jennifer Bonjean, told New York Daily News that her client doesn't control who he's around at MDC. Bonjean said, "Mr. Kelly is not in control of who he is housed with. A friend is someone you voluntarily hang out with." The lawyer for James declined to comment on his client's friendship with the singer. R. Kelly remains in a federal detention center in New York. Last year R Kelly was found guilty of sex trafficking. He was convicted by a federal judge for racketeering conspiracy, alleging he headed a criminal enterprise that employed agents, runners, bodyguards, and others to lure and trap girls and young women to satisfy his sexually predatory desires. James is awaiting sentencing for his role in the horrible mass shooting on the N train in Brooklyn on April 12. Frank is believed to be the man that went on a subway, released two smoke grenades, opened fire, and caused havoc for New Yorker. It left 23 people injured; out of that, ten were shot. After an intense search for several hours, Frank called the police to let them know where he was, and he was apprehended a short time later. News reports say this mass shooting is one of the worst outbreaks of violence on a subway in the city's history.https://twitter.com/jmetr22b/status/1525697241457037312?s=21&t=A5ra-ItEs17Zt-A9cD4yzgLet us know your thoughts on everything!
