R. Kelly has been banned from using his studio freely.
New reports from Page Six detail how R. Kelly's "recording studio" is no longer his go-to spot after the scrutiny it received in the Surviving R. Kelly documentary. The warehouse location was allegedly not just a studio but rather a place the disgraced singer would take young women. “It looks like people are living there, and that’s not good,” Cook County Judge Patrice Ball-Reed said.
According to the publication the judge reviewed photos of the warehouse that showed faulty stairs, crumbling walls and fire hazards which means R. Kelly can only use the property for work purposes between 9 AM and 5 PM. The "Ignition" singer is not allowed to use the second floor of the warehouse since it's been labeled as dangerous.
“This is a problem the city needs to address quickly,” city attorney Greg Janes said in a complaint filed Tuesday. “We believe it’s imminently dangerous.”
Residents who live near the studio have detailed how they've been witness to some of the guests R. Kelly would bring to the studio. “[I’ve] seen younger girls in front of the building, back of the building,” Jim Lewis, who works nearby told the publication. “After his last incident about a year ago he did a little spring cleaning; there were mattresses in the alley, boxes of women’s shoes.”
