R. Kelly wasn’t oo happy about his incarceration in Cook County Jail, and the feeling was mutual. TMZ reports that the singer’s stay at the Chicago jail that ran from Friday through Monday caused some serious headaches when he received visitors.

According to the site, Kelly saw visitors on Saturday and again on Monday, with both visits lasting fifteen minutes. While hw as being moved, the jail’s guards were told to completely cease the other prisoners’ movements. That’s a problem when you consider the jail has about 6,100 inmates.

The spokesperson for the jail said that Kelly’s celebrity status was the reason for the freeze, as officials didn’t want the other inmates making a scene as he was moved. Jail officials are said to be very happy he’s gone.

Kelly was incarcerated for the weekend after turning himself in on ten counts of sexual abuse, with nine of the counts involving girls who were 16 years old or younger.
