In recent weeks, disgraced rapper R. Kelly has been arrested multiple times and three allegedly incriminating sex tapes have surfaced.
Many hope that he will finally go to prison. Others worry that, should somehting happen to him, a worse fate will befall his alleged victims.
Those fears seemed realized when police received a 911 call warning that five of Kelly's women were participating in a "suicide pact."
According to an alarming 911 call, R. Kelly's alleged victims were in danger of taking their own lives.
The warning regarded Azriel Clary and "four other women, who are victims of R. Kelly."
According to the caller, those five women "are planning to carry out a suicide pact."
The location was to be "at one of the condos at Trump Tower."
There was no indication on the call of when the alleged pact would be carried out.
Similarly, there was no revelation of the unit number at the Chicago building.
Nonetheless, at 5:30pm on Tuesday, police arrived in the area.
The Chicago Police Department confirmed to People.
"Police received a call from an out of state anonymous caller," the CPD stated.
The call was "stating that people at the location were going to carry out a suicide pact."
"Police on scene," the statement explained, were there "conducting a wellness check and it is not a bonafide incident."
In other words, it appears to have thankfully been a false alarm.
It is a relief to hear that those poor women are alright.
However, R. Kelly's attorney who has been speaking on his behalf recently was less than thrilled at the intrusion.
Greenberg claims that it "It is offensive that anyone gives this any credibility."
For the record, police perform wellness checks more or less any time that someone calls them with frantic concerns.
And it seems that this cry of alarm was especially believable.
Prior to the release of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries, an early alleged victim of the disgraced rapper spoke to People.
In that interview, Lizzette Martinez described the horror that she faced ... and claimed that there was a suicide pact in place.
"I was the beginning of the predatory behavior. I was… I met him after he married Aaliyah," Lizzette confessed.
"I had it bad but what I hear today is that he’s taking this to a whole other level," she admitted.
Lizzette expressed: and I’m so worried about the young women in the house."
"I mean my anxiety is constantly through the roof," Lizzette shared.
"Because I hear the parents," she explained. "I hear there’s a plan in place."
"That he’s put it in place that if something goes down," Lizzette said. "They’re all going to take pills and kill… I just can’t."
"I just don’t understand it," she admitted. "And I’m so worried about them."
"It just breaks my heart," she concluded. "I’m so angry with him."
A lot of people feel similarly. We all hope that those young women will survive.
