Kelly Cancels Tour Dates Amid Cult Allegations

Kelly Cancels Tour Dates Amid Cult Allegations”

Last month, a Buzzfeed News report contained shocking allegations that R. Kelly was keeping young women in a "sex cult".

Meanwhile, sources from R. Kelly told TMZ the tour will still go on though, explaining that the L.A. show was only cancelled because of a scheduling conflict.

Our sources say the 4 stops were nixed due to poor ticket sales, which shouldn't come as a surprise.

The 50-year-old also assured fans at the time that he would be continuing with his tour. This your boy Kelly, and I just wanna let all of my fans out there know that despite all of the crap y'all hearing, I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show, ' he said in the tweet. And believe me, y'all, it's a bunch of crap'.

The 20,000 capacity venue reportedly looked empty, with many seats left unoccupied after only a fraction of music fans turned out for the concert.

Considering R. Kelly's rep, it was pretty easy for several people to take this story and run with it. Or are his fans turning their backs on him in light of the cult allegations? According to TMZ, four of his next ten dates have been purely and simply cancelled.

Two shows in Louisiana got axed, one in Dallas and another in Los Angeles. "They canceled", a source said.

At the heart of a new sex scandal, R. Kelly is going to have to shorten his tour After Party.
