R. Kelly believes he can fly…under the radar, but unfortunately for him there will be no such luck. The singer is facing a $2.9 million foreclosure lawsuit on his suburban Chicago mansion due to the fact that he has failed to make mortgage payments on the home since June 2010. The 11,140-square-foot home was built by Kelly himself 11 years ago, but the singer has reported not lived in the home for more than a year. Apparently he has stopped making payments on the mortgage in an attempt to force the bank to negotiate a loan modification on the property, which has a four-car garage, six full bathrooms, and seven half bathrooms. Wow, who knew this particular singer even knew how to use a bathroom?
Kelly’s spokesperson could not be reached for comment and while he’s declined to discuss the foreclosure situation, he told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Kelly is not in any financial trouble. Doesn’t look that way to me. If this I Believe I Can Fly singer doesn’t get his act together soon and make those payments then he could very well end up homeless. Bummer. But they say what goes around comes around and as the saying goes — we don’t swim in your toilet, so don’t pee on 14 year olds. Or something like that.
