Bureau of Prisons, YouTube

Former R&B singer/songwriter R. Kelly filed a lawsuit against U.S. Bureau of Prisons officers and YouTube blogger Tasha K for violating his privacy.

The lawsuit was filed Monday, Nov. 13, in Chicago’s federal court, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

Kelly is also suing the defendants for violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, according to court documents.

Kelly’s attorney Jennifer Bonjean accused one officer of improperly accessing Kelly’s prison records and leaking them to Tasha K between July 2019 and January 2020.

“One unknown officer unlawfully downloaded that information and sold it to Tasha K, a YouTube blogger with more than 1 million subscribers,” according to the lawsuit.

“Certain officers conspired with each other and a YouTube Blogger Latasha Kebe known as “Tasha K” to access and steal private and confidential information from BOP databases related to Mr. Kelly, including email communications, recorded phone calls, trust account information, visitor logs, and attorney client communications.”

Bonjean wrote that “there has been a cover-up of the rampant BOP misconduct that is ongoing,” and that the leak “created chaos in [Kelly’s] personal life.”

Other officers also allegedly leaked confidential prison records to The Washington Post. The Washington Post is not a defendant in the complaint.

Kelly is serving a 30-year prison sentence at a medium-security prison in Butner, North Carolina. He was convicted of racketeering in Brooklyn’s federal court in 2021.

A Chicago jury also found him guilty of producing child p0rnography and enticing minors for indecent acts in 2022. His sentence added just one year to his total time to be served.

Kelly is not eligible for release from federal custody until December 2045.
