R. Kelly cancels tour dates amid sex cult allegations


R. Kelly has scrapped several dates on his U.S. tour following allegations that he’s holding a number of young women in a sex cult – a claim he denies.

A recent Buzzfeed article reported that R. Kelly has been running a sex cult from his Georgia and Illinois homes. He denies the allegation.

Three concerts are confirmed cancellations, and at least one other show is in doubt, according to Billboard.

Ticketmaster’s website reveals the singer’s upcoming After Party tour dates are canceled at UNO Lakefront Arena, New Orleans (Aug. 11), Raising Cane’s River Center Arena, Baton Rouge; and Music Hall at Fair Park, Dallas.

Ticket sales blamed
The remaining seven shows were still slated to go ahead as planned.

Kelly last hit the stage at Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach on July 28 for his first performance since the sex cult scandal surfaced.

The venue, according to TMZ, appeared to be at below half-capacity in the hours leading up to the show and the website blames slow ticket sales for the latest cancellations.
