Cops paid a visit to R. Kelly’s infamous recording studio in Chicago, which has been featured on Lifetime’s docuseries as an alleged “sex cult” base where the singer held girls captive.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … officers dropped by Kelly’s westside music studio Tuesday evening, but it appeared to be vacant.
There was no call to police that triggered the visit … cops went to check out the spot because it’s gotten so much publicity from Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly. The docuseries portrayed the location as a hub for Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse of women.
Interestingly, there was reportedly a party there Tuesday night, on what was Kelly’s 52nd birthday. Cops however, had no knowledge of the event, and they will continue to patrol the area.
On the docuseries … the parents of one of Kelly’s alleged victims, Azriel Clary, go to the R&B singer’s studio and throw rocks at the windows, trying to get her to come outside. The studio is currently listed for sale.
As was reported … Chicago prosecutors are urging R. Kelly victims to come forward, and at least one victim and the families of 2 others are doing just that … and believe they have sufficient evidence to prosecute him.
State Attorney Kim Foxx says all witnesses or alleged victims can call (773) 674-6492.
