R. Kelly’s two rental homes in Georgia were “ransacked” during the singer’s tenancy and now he’s on the hook for damages.

His 23-room mansion, which rents for $10,000 per month, had “extensive damage” which included floors, carpets and electrical wiring that had to be redone before SB Property Management could rent the property again, according to the New York Post. There was also a number of items, including a stove, light fixtures, ceiling fans and even pillows, that went missing on Kelly’s watch.

The second house, which was renting for $3,000 a month, was found loaded with garbage and had two broken windows, according to the property group.

The damages was reportedly done at the hands of Kelly’s former associate Alfonso Walker, who was charged with breaking into the homes and stealing.

Kelly was accused of running a sex cult and “grooming” girls at the Georgia mansion and other properties in Chicago earlier this year. [NYP]Erin Hudson
