Chicago police had to rush to the home of disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly which is located in the Trump Tower on Tuesday evening amid fear and speculation that his girlfriends had made a suicide pact and were attempting to carry it out.

Eventually, it was reported to be a false alarm. A police radio call online showed a dispatcher receiving an anonymous call where the caller told officers that R. Kelly's girlfriend Azriel Clary and "four other women, who are victims of R. Kelly are planning to carry out a suicide pact at one of the condos at Trump Tower." However, the caller did not specify when or where the alleged suicide would take place.

As confirmed to PEOPLE by the Chicago Police Department in a statement, emergency responders showed up at the 400 block of North Wabash a little before 5.30 pm.

The statement read, "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 conducted a wellness check and it is not a bonafide incident."

Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg shared, "It is offensive that anyone gives this any credibility." Before Lifetime's documentary series called 'Surviving R. Kelly' released, one of Kelly's victims Lizzette Martinez revealed to PEOPLE that Kelly had a suicide pact with the women "living in his house."

The documentary looks at the survivors and victims and the alleged abuse that they faced at the hands of R. Kelly. 

Martinez revealed, "It was the beginning of the predatory behavior. I met him after he married Aaliyah. I had it bad but what I hear today is that he’s taking this to a whole other level and I’m so worried about the young women in the house. I mean my anxiety is constantly through the roof because I hear the parents, I hear there’s a plan in place. That he’s put it in place that if something goes down they’re all going to take pills and kill… I just can’t."



 

"I just don’t understand it and I’m so worried about them. It just breaks my heart. I’m so angry with him," she added. It was just last week that Azriel Clary and Kelly's other girlfriend Jocelyn Savage defended the singer while doing an interview with Gayle King on CBS's 'This Morning'. Both the women denied that they had been snatched away from their presently estranged families. Both parents of the girls claim that the women were being held against their will and form a part of what the parents describe as his "sex cult".

Cook Country Sheriff confirmed that Kelly was released from jail on Feb. 25 after being charged with 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse against four alleged victims. He was able to secure his bail by paying 10% of the $1 million bail amount.
