Just days after his Atlanta mansions were ransacked and emptied out, the R&B singer posted a reflective video, and photos of the damage caused. Kelly spoke about the ordeal while filming various rooms throughout one of the properties, insisting he wasn’t going to let the incident bring him down.
“I’m at my house right now, in Atlanta, where they basically done clean out my whole house,” he said. “[…] This is what happens when you let people too close to you—people you’ve known for 25-30 years. This is what happens.”
He continued: “They took everything. It’s all love, though. Keep my head up. Keep working on this album. You can’t do nothing about something you can’t do nothing about.”
Kelly also thanked the officers who were working on the case, as well as his fans who have reached out with supportive messages.
As previously reported, two of Kelly’s Atlanta properties were cleaned out this week while he was performing in New Orleans. Authorities identified Kelly’s associate Alfonso Walker as the mastermind behind the burglaries, after they encountered an individual who claimed Walker hired him to move and sell Kelly’s furnishings as he was relocating to Chicago. The suspect reportedly worked for the singer in the past and is now wanted on charges of burglary and theft.
