When police swarmed R. Kelly’s Chicago studio the walked away with a BIG list of violations and potentially some hefty fines.
According to TMZ, the Chicago studio, heavily featured in “Surviving R. Kelly” was slammed with 66 building code violations, most notably for using the place as a residence and not obtaining permits to build a sauna, steam room and a bar … this according to legal docs.
In the docs, each violation comes with a fine ranging between $500 to $1,000 for each day the violation goes unaddressed … and with 66 violations, R. Kelly could be looking at a fine between $33k to $66k per day!
The court has already ordered R. Kelly to remove all personal items from the premises and he can only use the space as a recording studio from 9 AM to 5 PM.
As you know … R. Kelly’s studio was swarmed last week by Chicago cops and the Cook County Building and Zoning Department — and they ended up filing a complaint against R. Kelly.
Sources close to R. Kelly deny he’s ever lived in the studio and R. Kelly believes the space is exactly as it was when he first started renting it 3-4 years ago.
