R. Kelly Reportedly Received Both Rounds of COVID-19 Vaccine While in Jail

R. Kelly has reportedly received both shots of a COVID-19 vaccine while being held in an Illinois prison on child sex charges.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer — who repeatedly tried to get released from custody because of the dangers of the pandemic — is one of more than 60 inmates at Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center to be fully inoculated, according to TMZ.

The 47-year-old got his first shot in January and the second this month, the outlet said. It was not clear which vaccine he received.

The singer — real name Robert Kelly — is awaiting trials in Illinois and New York on charges including sexually abusing underage girls, producing child pornography, and destroying evidence.

We wonder if R. Kelly’s celebrity status in prison gave him vaccine priority over other inmates.
