It’s been a crazy time for real estate, with American Horror Story‘s Murder House going for sale, and now “Bump N’ Grind”-ing R&B crooner R. Kelly is putting his 22,000 square-foot Illinois spread on the block. With an asking price of $1.59 million, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom joint (that’s not including six half-baths) features a jungle-themed indoor pool, a private lake with a fountain and waterfall, several fireplaces, and a state-of-the-art kitchen (girlfriend-seducing, cabinet-sized little person not included).
