*Times are tough and it isn’t easy trying to sell a mansion in Chicago.
Singer R. Kelly can testify to that since his Lake View home was sold 30 percent under his original asking price of $3.89 million.
He actually wasn’t the owner at the time of the sale. He handed the deed over in 2002 and in 2008 it was purchased out of foreclosure for $1 million and revamped for the current sale.
The renovations were tremendous, including a $7,000 shower head and elevator. It has 11 rooms, a 1,600 gallon salt water aquarium, an indoor swimming pool, sauna, spa room, and elevator access to the rooftop with a full kitchen.
Prosecutors said that the wood-paneled “Colorado room” in the house’s basement was the backdrop for a sex tape that allegedly featured Kelly having sex with and urinating on an underage girl. He was acquitted by a jury that found the man in the video to be unidentifiable
