Watch: R. Kelly Shows The Extent Of Damage To His Atlanta Home Following Burglary By Close Associate
Two of R. Kelly's Atlanta homes were burglarized over Thanksgiving weekend while he was on tour. The R&B singer shared a video and photos of his near-empty house on Instagram, after returning to Georgia to check out the damage.

Kelly's mansion in John’s Creek, Georgia, as well as his home on Old Homestead Trail, were both burglarized recently.

The singer remained quiet about the incident at first, but Kelly decided to share videos to show his followers loss he suffered after the burglaries.

The singer said in the video, "I’m in my Atlanta home now and they basically done cleaned out my whole house."

The singer tried to remain optimistic about the situation and stated, "I thank all my fans for their support."

However, after entering another ransacked room, he said, "That’s what happens when you get … well, let people too close to you … People you’ve known 25, 35 years. This is what happens."

...Still encouraged. Still blessed.

The "I Believe I Can Fly" singer's home was burglarized on Nov. 26 while he was on tour.  His cleaning woman made the discovery when she entered the residence. 

In the video, Kelly goes on to show several parts of the home, including his living room and what appears to be a recreation room.

Thieves reportedly took everything from furniture to a diamond-encrusted hoodie.

After the discovery, police in Fulton County, Georgia searched another of Kelly's homes in the area and found the home had also been burglarized. Items taken included televisions, couches, chairs and tables. 

Police said that earlier this month they encountered an individual who said he had been hired by Kelly to move out the furnishings and sell them because the singer was relocating to Chicago. 

However, Johns Creek Cpt. Chris Byers. told ABC affiliate WSB-TV that the man, identified as Alfonso "Doc" Walker, was allegedly involved in a scheme to sell the missing items to the highest bidder, room by room. 

Walker had been working on "odd jobs" for Kelly, according to police.

Kelly went on to thank his fans and the local police for helping him.

The singer said, "They took everything. So … It’s all love though. I’m’ma keep my head up, keep working on this album. You can’t [do] nothing about something you can’t do nothing about. I do thank the police department here for being quick to hop on everything and get some of my stuff back. And, like I said, I thank all the fans from around the world who’ve been sending out messages and prayers and staying positive and keeping me positive through the whole thing. Just God bless y’all."

In a second video, he simply stares into the camera, looking disappointed and hurt. 

Kelly, 50, has made headlines recently after being accused of running a sex cult out of his Atlanta compound. The singer has vehemently denied the accusations.
