R. KELLY: Botched Club Appearance
Written by KingCnote on April 10, 2019
R. Kelly is getting desperate for money. The disgraced singer went on social media to beg the media to “take it easy” on him ahead of a paid appearance at a Springfield, Illinois nightclub over the weekend.
Even though most promoters home and abroad wouldn’t touch Kells with a 20-foot-pole, a club called Dirty South Lounge was willing to take a chance. He appearedas promised, but folks expecting a performance were sorely disappointed by a set that lasted all of 28 seconds.
Local news stations report that he didn’t show up to the club until around 1:30 in the morning. He spent a half hour interacting with fans before getting on the mic for less than a minute. Tickets were sold for as much as $100, though the price tag was cut in half as the night got later.
