R. Kelly filed a law suit against the Metropolitan Detention Center (MDC) in Brooklyn for putting him on suicide watch after he clearly stated he had no intentions of committing self harm, TMZ reported Friday.

Kelly’s suit claims MDC Brooklyn representatives are responsible for causing “cruel and unusual punishment” after placing him under the harsh conditions of being on suicide watch, according to TMZ. Kelly claims he is in a single cell without bed rails and has complained that he has no access to toilet paper or showers and isn’t being given the opportunity to shave. He has allegedly been forced to eat meals with his hands and isn’t permitted to communicate with his loved ones, the outlet reported.
