R. Kelly Announces Upcoming Tour Despite Sex-Abuse Controversy

February 5, 2019

Despite his ongoing sex-abuse scandal, R. Kelly took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce that he's heading out on tour. "NEW TOUR ALERT," he wrote alongside a tour poster that declares him "THE KING OF R&B." He added in the caption, "Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, see y'all soon!" The Blast notes that back in December, news of a similar R. Kelly tour became public, except Kelly quickly took to social media to blast the announcement as "fake." Kelly added at the time, "Watch my social media…when it’s time for my next international tour (which is soon) you’ll hear it directly from me. Stay tuned for more King s**t in the VERY near future!"
