R. Kelly is getting a lot of unflattering headlines this month after Lifetime’s docu-series “Surviving R. Kelly” was released. The series chronicles various stories and allegations from R. Kelly’s sexual abuse victims, who claim the rapper was a pedophile and ran a sex cult, among other things.

It’s unclear if the Chicago caller actually thought there was an arrest warrant out for R. Kelly, or if they were just trying to scare him.

But the party went on. He can be heard on video saying, “I don’t give a f**k about what’s going on tonight!” which is likely a reference to the swirling allegations surrounding him right now.
