Lucky Blogger Visits Former Home of R. Kelly


A couple months ago, items purported to be the former property of R. Kelly began appearing on Craigslist. Decider's David Wolinsky followed up and was rewarded with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tour the sprawling Chicago mansion (and former church!) which Kellz made his home between 1996 and 2000 (it has sat unoccupied since). Wolinsky was disappointed to find that it was just like the house of any other wealthy superstar, unless you count the Space Jam memorabilia and the basement, which was inexplicably decorated by Kelly to look like a log cabin, and features wallpaper that gives the illusion that you're spying on someone else's adjacent pretend log cabin (there are photos). The mansion's current owner is looking to sell it for something in the "millions-of-dollars range," but this place sounds like a steal at any price.
