Police responded to an anonymous tip suggesting R. Kelly's girlfriends were planning to carry out a "suicide pact". Kelly was released Saturday after the money was paid.
News they received the call from the 400 block of North Wabash street at around 5:18 p.m. CPD's statement said, "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".
When police conducted a wellness check at Kelly's home that evening, an attorney answered the door and claimed that nothing was wrong and that no one had called 911, Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told E!
It appears that the claims weren't correct as it was later reported that R Kelly was at the property and had been meeting with his legal team for several hours with no unusual behaviour noted.
One of Kelly's accusers, Lizzette Martinez, sat down with and revealed that she worries about the women because of the detrimental promise they've made to take their lives if all goes south. See, I've been through that.
"I mean my anxiety is constantly through the roof because I hear the parents, I hear there's a plan in place".
The child support issue is separate from Kelly's criminal case, in which he faces 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
It isn't just the public who is anxious about Clary's and Savage's safety but their parents as well.
Azriel Clary's parents spoke to Gayle King and stated that Clary previously threatened to commit suicide if they tried to separate her from R. Kelly.
When Kelly suggested she go on tour with him, Angelo and Alice claimed their daughter told them: "If you don't allow me to go, I will try to take my own life again or I will run away". It just breaks my heart. They claim the singer brainwashed Azriel Clary and is holding her trapped in a toxic relationship.
"I didn't trust him".
Both women have denied their parents' allegations.
