R. Kelly Has Hernia Surgery While in Jail

The 'I Believe I Can Fly' singer misses a court date as he is recovering in his jail cell after having a surgical procedure for hernia at a nearby hospital.

AceShowbiz - Jailed R&B star R. Kelly was forced to miss a court date this week due to hernia surgery.

Sources tell TMZ the troubled singer was allowed to leave his jail cell in a Chicago, Illinois penitentiary for the procedure at a nearby hospital.

It's not clear how long Kelly's surgery was, but he was back behind bars on Thursday evening.

The star's hernia issues have been a problem for some time - his lawyer filed documents in September, listing his client's medical woes, which included much-needed surgery.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports Kelly is now recovering in his jail cell.

The "I Believe I Can Fly" hitmaker is facing a series of sexual abuse charges in Chicago, and racketeering and sex trafficking in New York. He has pleaded not guilty and remains in custody as he awaits his day in court.
