R Kelly’s gated mansion up for sale

Posted: December 14, 2011 in HOME

R Kelly’s 16-room mansion has been put on the market.
A real estate listing shows the 22,000-square-foot suburban Chicago mansion has a 1.595 million dollars (£1.02 million) price tag. It’s a short sale, meaning the Grammy-winning singer owes more on the house than it’s worth.

Up for sale

The I Believe I Can Fly singer custom-built the 16-room gated mansion in 1997. The house includes eight full bathrooms, four fireplaces, an indoor pool, sauna and theatre room. There’s also a private lake.
Over the summer the house was the subject of a foreclosure lawsuit because Kelly reportedly failed to make monthly mortgage payments for more than a year.
His spokesman, Allan Mayer, says the singer hasn’t lived in the home for more than a year.
