R. Kelly Soon to be Homeless


Robert Sylvester Kelly, more famously known as R. Kelly, may soon be homeless. According to court documents, the 44-year-old singer-songwriter has shirked from paying his monthly mortgage payments for his Chicago home which may soon be on the foreclose list.

In the foreclosure action filed by J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A. in the cook county circuit court, the Grammy-award winning performer allegedly failed to pay his house dues since June 2010. The document further claimed that the current balance on the loan has ballooned to a whooping $2.9million, excluding unpaid interest.

The “I Believe I Can Fly” singer reportedly asked for a $3.5million loan back in 1999 to pay for his 11,000-square-foot mansion in Olympia Fields in south suburban Chicago. The required monthly payment was supposedly $24.345.12.

R. Kelly is an American R&B singer-songwriter, arranger, performer and record producer. He made his musical debut in 1992 with the group Public Announcement. He release his first solo album, 12 Play, in 1993. R. Kelly, who won three Grammy Awards in 1998 for his song “I Believe I Can Fly,” has figured in child pornography charges back in 2008.

Hope everything turns out well with the multi-talented singer. Afterall, he did say nothing is impossible through his hit song “I Believe I Can Fly”.
