R. Kelly is always in some mess..this time it's a a lawsuit
An Atlanta-area property company is suing Grammy-winning R&B artist R. Kelly for $203,400 over “extensive damage” to two homes he rented.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports SB Property Management Global, LLC., based in East Point, filed the lawsuit Wednesday. It says one home suffered damage to electric wiring, flooring, and windows and was missing items including a stove, furniture, ceiling fans and 22 light fixtures.
These are the same homes an associate of Kelly’s was accused of robbing in 2017. Alfonso L. Walker was charged with theft and burglary. Kelly and the company settled in April 2018 for $170,000, agreeing Kelly would be released from damage claims. But the lawsuit says Kelly has only paid $20,000.
The mansion, which Kelly rented for $10,000 a month, suffered “extensive damage” and couldn’t be leased out again until repairs were made. SB Property Management Global listed a host of issues at the home — damaged electrical work, the need to refinish flooring and carpet in many of the rooms, two broken windows and damage to the theater, study, fitness room, cigar room, bathrooms, kitchen and living room.
The $3,000-a-month home on Saint Devon Crossing was also filled with trash and had two broken windows.
