If you are driving through the upscale John’s Creek neighborhood in Georgia, those items outside that mansion might belong to R. Kelly. An eviction notice was posted issued in Fulton County Magistrate Court for the R&B icon over nonpayment of rent.

According to the court documents, Robert Kelly was renting the mansion located at 405 Old Homestead Trail for $11,542.45 per month, which may not have included cable and utilities. The property management company states that Kelly owes, $23,084.90 for January and February as well as late fees and court costs of $2,308.48.

Kelly owns or rents at least two other homes in the area and has been the victim of a burglary. One man was actually selling personal items from the star’s home because he said he was owed money. In the summer of 2017, allegations that R. Kelly was the center of a sex cult that controlled young women caused major concert cancellations. The singer has denied holding any women against their will and has not been touring or releasing any new material. The eviction notice can be viewed below:
