R. Kelly's Chicago mansion has gone into foreclosure.

Kelly's Olympia Fields home was sold Monday to J.P. Morgan Chase, which already held the mortgage. Chase set the opening bid at $950,000, then submitted the only offer.

The property once was valued at more than $5 million. Last year, Chase stated in court files that Kelly still owed about $3 million on the 11,140-square-foot home. Once a judge approves the deal, the bank can put it on the market.

Kelly's business manager didn't return a call from the newspaper. His one-time spokesman, Allan Mayer, says he can't comment on the auction, but the Grammy winner isn't having financial problems.

Lindsay Lohan, who has a track record of being totally 100% trustworthy, says that she is most certainly NOT this beige lump that was out clubbing just hours after Lohan was sentenced to 90 days of rehab.

Lindsay just tweeted, "Guys relax, that was NOT me at AV or in the @Mr. Pink SUV. I'm taking this seriously and focused on the road ahead."

BTW — Mr. Pink is the company that foot the bill for the private jet LiLo flew to L.A. late Sunday night. We're told LiLo obligated herself to attend events at clubs on Pink's behalf to pay off the debt.

But Lindsay says she was a homebody Monday night: "I stayed in last night, after a pretty long day ... and ordered sushi to my hotel."

And there's this: "Don't believe EVERY little thing you hear, unless you hear it from me. The support I have gotten, has been great and means a lot."


You're doing great, Lindz. Don't ever change. (Meanwhile, Michael Lohan is mad and would like you to pay attention to him again.) [TMZ]


Henry Bromell, executive producer and writer of Homeland, has passed away at age 65.

The acclaimed writer-producer had been part of the Emmy-winning drama's six-member writing staff since its first season. In addition to a rich résumé, which includes Northern Exposure, Homicide: Life on the Street, Chicago Hope, Rubicon and Showtime's Brotherhood, Bromell brought with him personal experience as his father had worked for the CIA.

"We were lucky to work with Henry on and off for the past 18 years," studio Twentieth Century Fox TV and Fox 21 said in a statement Tuesday morning. "He was a supremely talented writer and as kind and warm a person as you could ever meet. He will be deeply missed at the studio and on Homeland. Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife and children."


Condolences all around. [THR]


Bye, guys. Time for drunk.
