Latest Entertainment News (Townflex) In a surprising legal move, disgraced R&B star R. Kelly has filed a lawsuit against U.S. federal prison officials, accusing them of leaking his private information to popular blogger Tasha K.
The incarcerated singer asserts that three unnamed Bureau of Prisons (BOP) officials accessed internal systems, revealing details of his activities, emails, calls, and visitor logs during his time in a Chicago prison.
Kelly, represented by lawyer Jennifer Bonjean, alleges a conspiracy between the prison officials and Tasha K, suggesting a potential financial motive behind the unauthorized disclosure of his personal information.
The singer claims that the leaked details, which Tasha K shared with her substantial YouTube following, damaged his reputation, invaded his privacy, and caused him considerable emotional distress.

Pointing fingers at the U.S. government for negligence, Kelly seeks substantial damages, arguing that prison personnel should not have had access to and shared his confidential information.
These legal claims stem from events dating back to 2019, with Kelly raising concerns about the breach of his privacy while incarcerated in Chicago.
Tasha K, known for her legal entanglements, has vehemently denied any involvement in illicit activities related to the leaked information.
It’s worth noting that Cardi B previously successfully sued Tasha K for defamation.
As Kelly serves his lengthy sentence in a federal facility in North Carolina following his conviction in the Chicago case, the lawsuit adds another layer to the complex legal saga surrounding the controversial artist.
