R&B singer R. Kelly did more than just step in the name of love at his birthday celebration party in Chicago. New reports claim local police hit up a nightclub in response to a call about a warrant for his arrest.
According to reports, cops busted into his party but eventually left after realizing Kells didn’t really have a warrant for his arrest.
Law enforcement confirmed to TMZ that they did indeed go to the club and make contact with Kelly — however, once they determined there was NO actual arrest warrant … Kelly was free to go about his business. It’s unclear if the caller was just pranking Kelly, or if the person really thought there was an arrest warrant … but cops tell us they routinely respond to such calls … just to make sure. (TMZ)

Footage from the packed nightclub has surfaced and shows Kells turning up.
This week, Atlanta rapper Future said people should stop putting ample focus on Kelly.
“Man, who is that? I thought we had forgot about that? We giving it too much attention. When you give things too much attention, they blow up. That’s why he gonna blow up. That’s why his music gonna do what it do. If you stop talking about it, it’ll go away.” (Power 106 FM)
Earlier in the week, buzz developed about a Georgia criminal investigation launching following last week’s Surviving R. Kelly docuseries airing.
We’re told the probe was launched over the past few days as a direct result of what ‘Surviving’ depicted. We’re told investigators have been reaching out to several survivors featured in the TV project. We have confirmed investigators reached out to Asante McGee, one of the women who allegedly escaped R. Kelly’s home. We’re told investigators were flooded with calls once the docuseries aired. (TMZ)
