R. Kelly Is Selling His Home, Closets Included
Perpetually trapped in small spaces Robert Sylvester Kelly, R. Kelly to his fanz, has listed his Illinois mansion for $1.59 million. And for the palatial 22,000 square-foot, six bedroom, eight full bathrooms and six half baths (with a bladder like his, you can't be too careful), that's a steal.
The Chicago native purchased the property in 1997 and built what became the crown jewel of Olympia Field, Illinois. R. Kelly is like the kid from Blank Check: it's not a slide connecting his bedroom to the pool, but he does have a tropical, jungle-themed indoor pool that's not far off. Add the enormous ceilings, countless fireplaces, massive home theater, and private lake with a fountain and waterfall, and you've got yourself a grown-up Disneyland. Or something.
