CHICAGO — Chicago police say two girlfriends of R. Kelly fought Wednesday inside the embattled singer’s Trump Tower condominium , resulting in one of the women being taken to a nearby hospital.
Authorities didn’t identify the women, however police called to the condo said a 22-year-old female and a 24-year-old were engaged in a physical altercation when they arrived. The 22-year-old says the two were engaged in a verbal argument that became physical when the 24-year-old struck the younger woman in the face.
Kelly, 53 on Wednesday, is being held without bond in Chicago’s Metropolitan Correctional Center, about a mile from his condo. He is charged with a variety of crimes in three states. Kelly has pleaded not guilty to federal charges in Chicago and New York of a racketeering scheme to sexually abuse girls. Kelly is also accused in Minnesota of offering a 17-year-old money in 2001 to take off her clothes and dance. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
A documentary series chronicling Kelly’s alleged sexual abuse of minors is currently being aired on Lifetime.
