New details reveal that imprisoned singer voiced concerns over a possible attack by other inmates but he wasn’t taken seriously.

We earlier reported the identity of ’s attacker being made known and now, the singer’s attorneys told TMZ that the ill feelings towards the artist are traceable to some prison guards telling the inmates they were placed on lockdown because of protests for Kelly outside the facility.
