R Kelly has forked over $25,000 to cover past due rent on one of his Georgia homes after he was served an eviction notice last month, DailyMail.com can disclose.
Kelly and SB Property Management entered into a consent order, where the company acknowledges the singer settled the unpaid rent and fees on February 27.
The 51-year-old agreed to evacuate the property and agreed that the company would not be held liable for any damages when removing his personal property from the home, according to the court documents obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
With the agreement, the company dropped all claims against Kelly for the past due rent and the case was promptly closed.
Kelly was hit with the eviction notice two weeks prior at the home in the Johns Creek neighborhood of Duluth, which was believed to be used as the hub of the R&B singer's alleged 'sex cult' before it was burgled last year.

Criminal charges were rumored to be filed due to damage done to the suburban Atlanta property, which has a $11,542.45-per-month rent, sources told DailyMail.com.
When the notice was served at the Old Homestead Trail house, no one was home and it appeared as though the property was been abandoned.
At the time, DailyMail.com contacted a spokesperson for Kelly for a comment on the eviction but did not receive a response.
Several suspicious break-ins occurred at the home and the owner is believed to be asking the court to hold the release of insurance money Kelly could receive until everything else is resolved.
Kelly rents another property in Johns Creek. He allegedly uses it to house his 'sex slaves' when he has visitors at his main home.
A third house rented by Kelly in the area was also believed to be burgled last year.
The Ignition singer did not make the money he expected to make over the last year, a source told DailyMail.com, blaming bad press after being accused of keeping a number of women in his home as members of a sex-obsessed, abusive cult.

Since then, it is believed Kelly has drastically downsized his team in recent months as he faces financial difficulties due to canceled shows, the source said.
The insider said that Kelly made $300,000 worth of renovations on the home, including turning one room into a cigar bar and another into a basketball court.
In December, Kelly said that two of his homes in Duluth had been burgled by 'an associate' while he was on tour in New Orleans.
He surveyed the damage on Instagram, revealing bare rooms and debris in a series of videos and photos.
Johns Creek police were summoned to the Grammy award-winning singer's home on Old Homestead Trail on November 26, reported WSB-TV.
