R. Kelly reportedly got COVID vaccine while awaiting child sex charges

R. Kelly has reportedly received both shots of a COVID-19 vaccine while being held in an Illinois lockup on serious 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.
