R Kelly is suing the Metropolitan Center Brooklyn for placing him on suicide watch due to being a ‘high-profile inmate’ and for ‘purely punitive reasons’, says his lawyer.The I Believe I Can Fly singer was sentenced to 30 years in prison last week after being convicted of sex trafficking and racketeering charges.He faced life behind bars for masterminding an elaborate scheme to entice and sexually exploit young aspiring singers and underage children.The producer was previously found guilty on all nine counts against him, including multiple counts of racketeering, with the charges relating to bribery and forced labour, by a jury in September last year.Kelly – who denied all charges – was also found in violation of an anti-sex trafficking law known as the Mann Act.The disgraced performer and producer is now suing MDC Brooklyn – the detention centre where he is being held – for placing him on suicide watch as a form of ‘cruel and unusual punishment’, as he denies being suicidal, according to court documents obtained by People magazine.In a statement to the publication, Kelly’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean said: ‘MDC has a policy of placing high profile individuals under the harsh conditions of suicide watch whether they are suicidal or not (this was done recently with Ghislaine Maxwell).’Claiming that the prison ‘is being run like a gulag’, Bonjean added: ‘My partner and I spoke with Mr.
