"Surviving R. Kelly" caused police to peep his Chicago recording studio which is alleged to house sex slaves.
The years of evading trouble are catching up to R. Kelly. The disgraced singer has managed to dodge allegations of sexual abuse for years, but after Lifetime aired their six-part docuseries, Surviving R. Kelly, an investigation on his property in Georgia was launched. While police in his hometown of Chicago hasn't jumped to investigating the singer yet, they did pay a visit to his recording studio where he allegedly holds his sex slaves captive.

Police in Chicago paid a visit to R. Kelly's recording studio in the Westside of Chicago yesterday evening, but it seemed to be vacant, TMZ reports. Accusations that the singer housed his alleged sex slaves in the recording studio resurfaced during Surviving R. Kelly. Although no calls were made to warrant a visit to the studio, the police went to look into the recording studio after the docuseries aired. Several women suggested the location is where Kellz would keep his alleged victims.
A parent of one of the alleged sex slaves revealed on Surviving that she used to go to the studio and throw rocks at the window to try and get her daughter to come outside.
The publication said there was reportedly a party there on Tuesday night -- Kellz' 52nd birthday -- but police had no knowledge of it. Police are going to continue to patrol the area. The documentary also stated that R. Kelly had friends in the police who would tip him off when welfare checks were being made at the studio. The property is currently being listed for sale which is being sold for $3.9M.
While police continue to look into the allegations against R. Kelly, the singer is rumored to be planning to flee the United States with the alleged victims after Fulton County police announced they were launching an investigation into the allegations.
