Between accusations of holding women hostage in his home for the goal of a sex cult to making fun of an autistic teen outside of a club in Los Angeles, R. Kelly's been facing a lot of heat. Reports are saying that someone burglarized his Atlanta homes while he's been away on tour.

While on tour in New Orleans during Thanksgiving weekend, two of the singer's homes were broken into and almost emptied out, WXIA reports. Police report that almost everything, including his furniture and electronics, were stolen from both of his properties.

After officers arrived on the scene at one house on November 27, a neighbor told police that they saw men loading furniture and items into several vans and cars parked outside. They told cops they'd been hired by one of Kelly's associates, Alfonso Walker, to sell everything because Kelly was moving his entire operation to Chicago.

But when contacted by police, Kelly's staff said Walker was only a part-time employee and was never told to empty out the mansions, TMZ reported. Sources tell us cops got a search warrant for Walker's home, and found some of Kelly's property there.

Walker no-showed after he was supposed to turn himself in on Tuesday, which triggered the warrant.
