With friends like these, who needs enemies? That's gotta be what R. Kelly is thinking today after finding out one of his associates robbed him blind.
WSBTV reports that while the singer was on tour a man named Alfonso Walker emptied out his two Atlanta homes and sold everything.
Police were tipped off by Kelly's maid.
"She found that the place had literally been ransacked,” said Johns Creek Cpt. Chris Byers. "Many televisions. Furnishings. We're talking about couches, chairs, tables. They wouldn't sell an individual item for a certain price, but say a bedroom for $6,000."
It took a week for all of the items to be moved.
At one point Walker was almost caught after neighbors noticed "strange vehicles and people coming and going from the houses all times during the night,”
Cops pulled up to one of the homes, blocked the driveway and got out of their vehicle with guns drawn.
Workers where told them where to find Walker, who was employed Kelly. However, he was able to convince them the "I Believe I Can Fly" hit maker "was moving his organization out of Atlanta back to Chicago and was selling off all of his belongings."
Walker is now on he run. He's facing a number of charges, including burglary and theft by deception.
