Police rush to R. Kelly’s apartment following reports of suicide pact by girlfriends
R.Kelly has two known live-in girlfriends, Azriel Clary, 21, and Joycelyn Savage, 23. An anonymous caller claimed they and other women linked to the singer were planning to end their lives in the apartment.
A police radio transmission posted on the Clyp audio sharing service on Tuesday stated an anonymous caller reported that Clary and four other unnamed women, “who are victims of R. Kelly,” were, “planning to carry out a suicide pact,” at his condominium in Trump Tower.
Chicago Police Department officials confirmed to People magazine that emergency responders conducted a welfare check at the apartment, and found the incident to have been a false alarm.
Their statement reads:
“Police received a call from an out of state anonymous caller stating that people at the location were going to carry out a suicide pact.
“Police on scene conducting a wellness check and it is not a bonafide incident.”
R.Kelly’s lawyer Steve Greenberg was angered by the situation, telling People: “It is offensive that anyone gives this any credibility.”
