Poor R.Kelly couldn’t make his house note, and now somebody else can get a great deal on his Olympia Fields mansion.

The suburban Chicago mansion of Grammy-winning singer R. Kelly is on the market.

A real estate listing shows the 22,000-square-foot mansion in Olympia Fields with a $1.595 million price tag. It’s a short sale, meaning Kelly owes more on the house than it’s worth.

Kelly custom-built the 16-room gated mansion in 1997. The house includes eight full bathrooms, four fireplaces, an indoor pool, sauna and theater room. There’s also a private lake.

Over the summer the house was the subject of a $2.9 million foreclosure lawsuit because Kelly reportedly failed to make monthly mortgage payments for more than a year.

Kelly’s spokesman, Allan Mayer, says the singer hasn’t lived in the home for more than a year.

We’d like to wish the future new owners good luck getting them urine stains out!
