Kelly's Atlanta mansion robbed

Kelly's Atlanta mansion robbed

- A cleaning lady told police she was "freaked out" after finding R&B singer R. Kelly's Johns Creek mansion cleaned out.

R. Kelly's Atlanta mansions were ransacked and emptied out while he was on tour in New Orleans.

The maid, who called 911 on November 26, told dispatchers that she was hired to clean Kelly's Old Homestead Trail mansion.

Three men caught leaving one of the houses in a van were brought in for questioning. Sources tell us cops got a search warrant for Walker's home, and found some of Kelly's property there.

According to TMZ, police say Kelly's homes were cleaned out on Thanksgiving weekend in back-to-back burglaries. When police arrived, an individual participating in the removal of Kelly's stuff said he was told by an associate, Alfonso Walker, to do the job at the request of the singer, who was moving back to Chicago.




Neighbors told Petchenik Wednesday that they noticed moving trucks at the homes but assumed someone was moving out.

Byers told BuzzFeed News that Walker sold Kelly's possessions "a room at a time".

The suspect, Alonso Walker, who Petchenik described as an "associate" of Kelly's, is now on the run from the law after missing a December 5 appointment to turn himself in on theft charges.

Police arrested Walker, but not before he allegedly sold several of Kelly's items.
