R. Kelly evicted from Georgia homes, owes $31K in rent

R. Kelly has been forced out of two Atlanta-area homes after failing to pay more than $31,000 in past rent.

The R&B singer born Robert Kelly was evicted from two homes he was renting in Johns Creek, according to court documents filed with the magistrate court of Fulton County

Kelly paid $3,000 and $11,542 a month, respectively, for the two homes.

In late November, both homes were robbed while he was on tour. A cleaning woman alerted the authorities on Nov. 26, telling police that “everything was gone.”

Alfonso Walker, 50, was arrested in December and charged with felony and misdemeanor charges, including theft by deception, theft by taking and burglary in the first degree.

Kelly previously rented a third home in the same area, where last July Buzzfeed reported he allegedly held women captive in a sex cult.

Kelly has denied the allegations and has not faced any charges.

A representative for Kelly did not immediately return a request for comment.

CELEBRITIES DONATE TO END GUN VIOLENCE

Celebrities are lining up with their wallets to help protect American kids from gun violence in the wake of another deadly school shooting.

Inspired by “the courage and eloquence” of the survivors of the recent shooting in Parkland, Fla., philanthropic duo George and Amal Clooney have donated $500,000 to help the students organize the upcoming March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., to tighten gun control.

The Oscar winner and human rights attorney made the donation in the name of their 8-month-old twins and announced they will be joining the rally on March 24, the couple said Tuesday.

“Our family will be there on March 24 to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country,” George Clooney said in a statement. “Our children’s lives depend on it.”

Producer Jeffrey Katzenberg and wife Marilyn also pledged $500,000 to the movement and said they’d join the demonstration. That pledge was soon matched by filmmaker Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw.

“The young students in Florida and now across the country are already demonstrating their leadership with a confidence and maturity that belies their ages,” Spielberg said. “Kate and I applaud their efforts to take a stand for the benefit of this and future generations. They are an inspiration to us all.”

A rallying cry rang out on social media after the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, led by the strident voices of young people. The mass shooting claimed 17 lives and injured several other people, which prompted surviving students to speak out about the tragedy over the weekend and organize the march.
