R Kelly show cancelled due to sexual misconduct allegations
R Kelly has seen his show in Chicago cancelled due to the allegations of sexual misconduct and assault made against him.
The cancellation comes as Women of Color of Time’s Up, a subcommittee of the Time’s Up movement, issued an open letter condemning R. Kelly. The statement asks multiple leading companies within the music industry to cut ties with the R&B singer. They include the likes of RCA Records, Ticketmaster, Spotify, and Apple Music.
R. Kelly has responded to this cancellation on Twitter in a video, he said: “First of all, I want to apologise to all of my fans in Chicago, and basically all around the world wherever I’m performing at and they cancelled me”.
“I don’t know why they canceled the show. I never heard of a show being cancelled because of rumours, but I guess there’s a first time for everything. So I apologise to you guys and in the meantime, I’m going to try to get to the bottom line of it, you know, as far as my lawyers are concerned, and see exactly what happened and why I was cancelled.”
