Are you in the market for a rental property in suburban Atlanta, GA that will make all your guests whisper, “This place has a bad vibe, right?” at your housewarming party? You’re in luck, because the mansion that R. Kelly used to call Home Sweet Sex Cult will soon be up for grabs.
According to The Daily Mail, an eviction notice was filed last Tuesday on one of R. Kelly’s homes in Duluth, GA. It’s one of the properties that got burgled last year. It’s also the one in which R. Kelly was allegedly keeping several women in semi-captivity as questionably consensual girlfriends (or “babies“). The home was renting for $11,542.45 per month. R. Kelly was reportedly two months behind on the rent, and owed $2,308.49 in late fees. Criminal charges are expected to be filed.
The Daily Mail says that when the eviction notice was served, it appeared as though the house had been abandoned. Defaulting on two months worth of rent would mean that the last time R. Kelly paid his rent might have been December. That’s the same month two of his Georgia homes were robbed. So maybe R. Kelly figured that if there was nothing left in his house but dusty outlines where the furniture used to be, there was no point in staying there anymore. Who knows the reason. The Daily Mail reached out to R. Kelly’s people for a comment on his eviction notice, but they received no response.R. Kelly rented a third house in the area, which was also believed to be burgled last year.
The Daily Mail says that the owner of the property that R. Kelly was just evicted from has gone to court and asked that his insurance hold off on paying him for the items that were taken. Apparently the home owner feels like shit is just a little suspicious at the moment, and he wants R. Kelly to take care of the missing $23,084.90 (plus late fees) first.
I don’t know if that home owner is implying what I think they’re implying. Are they implying that R. Kelly might have faked those robberies because his personal income situation isn’t the greatest right now? All I know is that R. Kelly is kind of fucked for the next house he wants to rent. Good luck trying to get a landlord reference. “What do you want to know about first? The missing girls or the missing rent checks?”
