R. Kelly reportedly has two weeks to cough up several thousands of dollars or he's getting the boot.
R. Kelly might need to find another place to house his alleged sex slaves. According to The Blast, the singer is facing eviction from his Chicago recording studio over failure to make his rent on time.
R. Kelly's Chicago studio which is also where he allegedly keeps his sex slaves is at risk of being vacated in the coming weeks. Either $80K in rent must be paid in two weeks or R. Kelly must leave the property. An eviction lawsuit was filed against him by the Midwest Commercial Funding, the property's owner, in July, but sources said they cut a deal on Monday which gives Kellz the ultimatum to pay up or vacate the studio. The singer reportedly signed a guaranteed 10-year lease with a monthly rate of $22,927.41.

The eviction process began after Kellz neglected to pay two balloon payments and also fell back on the monthly check. James Hodur of Coldwell Banker is responsible for selling the property, although he and the company insisted they do not represent Kellz in any way.
The property was listed for sale amid resurfaced allegations that appeared in Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly documentary. The property is currently listed at $3.9M after initially being listed for $4.9M. There's currently a party that's interested in purchasing the property, but if Kellz' pays up the remaining balance of what's owed to the property manager, the remaining 7 years in his lease appears to be grandfathered into the deal.
