R. Kelly has stepped forward to respond to reports that his tour dates are being cancelled due to low ticket sales.
The R&B legend has been under fire for the last few weeks for allegedly holding young girls hostage in what some people are saying is a sex cult. Since the story broke last month, new reports have surfaced claiming that some of his tour dates are being cancelled due to low ticket sales. This morning, R. Kelly posted a clip on Twitter telling his fans that none of his shows are cancelled.
“I want everybody around the world to know ain’t no tours cancelled,” Kelly said. “Alright? Despite what you hear, don’t believe the hype. I haven’t cancelled not one show.” TMZ previously reported that at least four dates have been cancelled on R. Kelly tour including shows in Los Angeles, Dallas, and Louisiana.
The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles also confirmed the show’s cancellation via a statement released to the media, telling ticket holders that they can get a refund. “We regret to inform you that the R. Kelly event on Friday, Oct. 6, 2017 at 8:00p.m. has been cancelled,” the statement reads. “Refunds will be provided at point of purchase.”
