Violations Found at the Chicago Warehouse Rented by R.Kelly

More legal issues are on the way for R. Kelly after officials of the Chicago Department of Buildings now have evidence of building code violations after a court-approved inspection of a warehouse he is renting.

Located on the Near West Side of Chicago, the warehouse has been the location of the singer following the Surviving R. Kelly docu-series. The building is seen in the docu-series and is believed to be the place where he has allegedly held girls against their will.

The warehouse was not supposed to be used for the believed purposes of a recording studio or a residence. The Chicago Sun-Times reports 10 officials spent an hour inside the warehouse.

“At today’s inspection, City inspectors observed building code violations including evidence of residential use which is non-compliant with the zoning code and work performed without approved plans or permits,” a Department of Buildings spokesman said in a statement.

The Sun-Times also states four men that were not from the city of Chicago entered the building prior to the arrival officials. Early Wednesday morning a video floated around social media showing a man removing computers and equipment from the warehouse.

R. Kelly has until Monday to pay over $160,000 in back rent to the owner of the property along with attorney fees and court costs. The next hearing regarding the property is scheduled for Tuesday (Jan. 22).
