R. Kelly: Hoverboard to the Rescue

EXCLUSIVE

If you ever crash your Skywalker Hoverboard, better hope R. Kelly's there to hook you up with another one, which is exactly what happened to one lucky kid at a Chicago department store.

The 9-year-old was helping his mom shop for a Burberry belt Sunday at the Nordstrom on Michigan Ave when he cruised off, and bit it so hard he broke his wheels in two. 

First to the rescue -- R. Kelly, who just happened to be doing some shopping. R. Kellz picked the kid up, and before he even shed a tear, Kelly had his assistant run to his car and grab the singer's personal hoverboard ... which he then handed to the kid. 

R. Kelly ... still making sure people can fly.
