R. Kelly’s Atlanta house linked to alleged sex ‘cult’ sells for $2.1M

R. Kelly’s Georgia home, where the singer was accused of holding several women hostage in what was branded a sex “cult” in a report, has now been sold. 

Despite reports that the Atlanta house went for $1.785 million, property records show the home sold for $2.1 million. 

In the astonishing documentary series, “Surviving R. Kelly,” women who lived at the Johns Creek home at the time accused the “I Believe I Can Fly” singer of atrocious acts, such as an incident recorded on a sex tape that surfaced of him allegedly having intercourse with a 14-year-old girl.

Other claims made against the singer include women being held against their will inside the home and having to ask for permission to eat and use the bathroom. It even included claims that they were forced to call him “daddy.” 

It seems the new owner of the home is looking past its disturbing history and closed on the sale on May 28.

Spanning a massive 11,455 square feet, the home is made up of seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms and sits on 2.5 acres of land.

The second floor holds five ensuite bedrooms which open onto private terraces. 
Other amenities include a spa with a pool, an outdoor kitchen, a treehouse, a playhouse and a tennis court.

The home made headlines in 2017 when a cleaning lady went inside the house and discovered it was completely cleaned out. Police later revealed that Alfonso Walker, a handyman and associate of Kelly, had access to both of his local homes and took advantage while Kelly was away on tour at the time, claiming it was revenge for money owed to him by the singer. 

“Everything they could get into the truck that week they took,” Capt. Chris Byers told Atlanta’s Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik.

Kelly is currently being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in downtown Chicago on federal charges that accuse him and members of his entourage of recruiting women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with the singer and paying them to cover up his crimes, including those at the center of his 2008 acquittal on child pornography charges.

In 2002, he was indicted on 21 counts of child pornography. 

Kelly has denied any wrongdoing.
