For a change, R. Kelly is the victim of a story. R. Kelly got burgled big time while he was away on tour in New Orleans and police believe a criminal mastermind named Alfonso Walker is the one who did it. Alfonso used to do odd jobs for Kelly but apparently felt compelled to answer a higher calling.
The New York Daily News reports that two of Kelly’s Atlanta houses (one owned and the other rented) had everything that wasn’t nailed down snatched in broad daylight reportedly under Alfonso’s direction. It’s alleged that Alfonso got a crew together to pose as movers and cleaned out every room in both houses. When a housekeeper arrived at one of the houses, she called the police and told them “everything was gone”.
Neighbors told investigators they had recently seen movers taking objects out of Kelly’s home and loading them up into a truck. When authorities returned the next day for follow-up interviews they found the group of fake movers back again at Kelly’s house.
They were detained and later told police Alfonso Walker told them Kelly was moving his organization to Chicago. Walker recently worked on some “odd-jobs” for Kelly, police said.
According to TMZ, Alfonso is so good that when the cops came looking for him at his house with a search warrant, he told them three different stories about how much of Kelly’s stuff ended up in his apartment. And they still didn’t arrest him! He told them he would turn himself in the next day but just didn’t bother to show up. There’s currently a warrant out for his arrest, but damn, either Alfonso is some kind of Jedi master or the police are 100% on team Fuck R. Kelly.
What’s even better is that Afonzo probably sold a bunch of Kelly’s shit on the spot. I guess Kelly’s neighbors are also all on team FRK. According to the NYDN:
In reality, authorities suspect Walker sold off the objects in Kelly’s house room by room, Byers explained, noting they were able to connect with one man who paid nearly $6,000 for the musician’s goods.
So, I know we’re all thinking it, who bought the room with all the video tapes? God I hope somebody found some real incriminating shit that they plan to sell to the highest bidder. Or give to the cops for free because they are good people and care about the welfare of all the young women Kelly has allegedly imprisoned and abused. This is a weird story and I still have some questions but my biggest question is who the fuck is still paying to see R. Kelly in concert? Can he please be treated with same respect and deference given to some of these other alleged criminals and be blackballed and shunned once and for all or nah?
