The start of a new week brings new issues for R. Kelly. Sunday night (Feb. 10) Chicago police were contacted by a TV news crew from Atlanta stating the keys to a rental car they were using were stolen.
The CBS crew details they were attempting to cover an incident occurring outside the studio and while the car was left running for under a minute, the keys were stolen from the vehicle. Details from the local authorities state an occupant of a black SUV entered the rental, stole the keys and got back in the SUV and fled the scene. The theft occurred after R. Kelly was confronted outside of the building.
Breaking: @cbs46 investigative team confronted who we believe to be R. Kelly as he was whisked out of his Chicago recording studio late Sunday night. At the same time, the driver of an SUV leaving the studio jumped in our vehicle and stole our keys, knowing we were media.

The response from the legal counsel for the troubled singer brushed off the accusation as a reach, stating that Kells would be tagged with the government shut down if it was possible.
So someone gets their key fob (which should’ve been in their pocket) stolen and they blame #rkelly. Next thing you know they’re going to blame him for the coming government shut down.

If it indeed was R. Kelly leaving the studio, it would be a violation against a court order that stated he would not be able to be inside the space after 9 p.m. Recently, R. Kelly attempted to have that order adjusted because he states he is more creative in the middle of the night.
