Four R. Kelly Tour Dates Cancelled Amidst Sex Cult Accusations


However, sources close to the singer claim the LA show was cancelled due to a scheduling conflict.

Almost half of R. Kelly's upcoming "After Party" tour dates were canceled on Monday.

This after Kelly put out a video in response to the accusations that he was holding women in houses in IL and Georgia against their will and brainwashing them into a sex cult.

Editors at the New York Post's Page Six gossip column report that the cancellations were made by Kelly's team after poor ticket sales.

He took to Twitter to thank fans for their support after his gig in Virginia Beach at the weekend, which was "half full", according to reports. The sources would not comment about the other 3 terminated shows.

The singer has reportedly hired a crisis management team to handle the allegations, including Monique Pressley, the lawyer who initially advised Bill Cosby after he was accused of sexual assault.

"I just want to let my fans know, despite all of the crap y'all hearing, I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show", he said in a video last week.
