Police responded to an anonymous tip suggesting R. Kelly's girlfriends were planning to carry out a "suicide pact." Per People, the Chicago Police Department's emergency responders showed up to the singer's Trump Towers home before 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
“Police received a call from an out of state anonymous caller stating that people at the location were going to carry out a suicide pact. Police on scene conducting a wellness check and it is not a bonafide incident,” the department confirmed in a statement.

Both women became very emotional defending the 52-year-old.
