A woman was reportedly hospitalized Thursday following a sexual assault which occurred in a building which once served as a recording studio for singer R. Kelly.
Per the Chicago Sun-Times, emergency crews picked up the unidentified 31-year-old woman on the intersection of Loomis Street and Carroll Avenue in Chicago, a few blocks away from the singer’s former studio. Fire officials said she was taken to the hospital and stabilized.
Citing unconfirmed police scanner correspondence, the news outlet reported that the victim claimed she was raped by three men at what she thought was Kelly’s studio before being thrown out the back door.

WGN-TV reported Kelly, who’s facing multiple counts of sexual abuse and assault, left the studio in February after a judge ordered that the property couldn’t be used for residential purposes.
WNYW noted that the Chicago studio was referenced in the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly.” In it, one of the alleged victims’ parents accused the singer of keeping her captive there and claimed they would throw rocks at the building in an attempt to contact her.
