However, the Bureau of Prisons says the reason behind R.Kelly's solitary confinement is because of his celebrity status and the nature of the charges he is been accused of. 

His lawyers say that Instead of moving him to a number of floors that are available outside of general population, BOP moved Kelly to “the most restrictive floor,” in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Chicago where he is been held.
