R. Kelly Attacker Claims the Government Made Him Do It

Last month R&B singer / songwriter R. Kelly was attacked inside his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago by a fellow inmate upset over lockdowns triggered by R. Kelly fans protesting outside the facility [click here if you missed that].

In the handwritten filing to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, titled, “The Government Made Me Attack R. Kelly,” Jeremiah Farmer said he was “forced” to beat the Grammy winner.
“Farmer, with nowhere else to turn for legal help, was forced to assault hip-hop R&B singer Robert Kelly in hopes of getting spotlight attention and world news notice to shed the light on the government corruption,” Farmer wrote.
He continued: “Due to the most blatant government corruption in Farmer’s case, and being in lockdown for R. Kelly protest, I physically beat Mr. Kelly in an attempt to shed media spotlight on Farmer’s case to prove government corruption and helping Farmer’s innocence to prevail.”
