According to Chicago Tribune, The beat goes on at the 14,525-square-foot former R. Kelly compound in Olympia Fields, which sold recently for $587,500 to another noted musician.
Rudolph Isley, the 74-year-old founding member of the R&B and soul group the Isley Brothers, and his wife, Elaine, have purchased the compound, which Kelly had owned from 1997 until he lost it to foreclosure in March.
After spending 35 years with the Isley Brothers, Isley departed the band in 1989 to pursue a career in ministry. The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.
Earlier this year, the mansion, which sits on a 3.7-acre lot that comes complete with a private lake, was purchased by JP Morgan Chase for a price of $950,000 at a foreclosure auction.
Alexander said Isley does not know Kelly, although the remaining members of the Isley Brothers teamed up with Kelly for Kelly’s 1995 hit “Down Low (Nobody Has to Know),” with one of Isley’s brothers, Ron, playing a mob boss in the video for the song.
