Fame ain't no thing for JPMorgan.

The bank just filed foreclosure against R. Kelly, the best-selling R&B artist, after Kelly had not made a mortgage payment since June 2010, according to Rolling Stone.

The suit states that the principal balance on his mortgage loan for his mulitimillion-dollar home in Olympia Fields, Illinois, is $2.9 million, according to Rolling Stone. However, the Chicago Real Estate Daily reports the home is now worth less than the debt.
