*As we recently reminded you, R. Kelly‘s messy sexual assault controversy isn’t affecting his money and influence.
We’ve got proof of that. Read on.
Earlier today, Kellyannounced that the controversial singer is going on tour in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
The bad boy of soul made the announcement on Instagram, writing:
“? NEW TOUR ALERT ? Australia | New Zealand | Sri Lanka see y’all soon! ?”
If you’re thinking you’ve heard this before, you’re right. It seems a similar tour was announced back in December 2018, but R. Kelly quickly took to social media to call the tour announcement “fake.”
In denying that tour he did tease this one, writing:
“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 shit in the VERY near future! ?”
After the “Surviving R. Kelly” docu-series was released, the singer was dropped by Sony Music while several artists, including Lady Gaga, have removed songs they did with him from streaming services.
But, as we’ve pointed out, it doesn’t seem to really matter. His money is still flowing ’cause a whole lotta folks still want to see and buy his music. We guess he’s not called the “Pied Piper of Soul” for nothing.
