R. Kelly concert faces possible cancellation in Georgia



A Georgia county no longer wants R. Kelly to perform in one of its cities after allegations surfaced that the R&B star is holding women in a cult.


Commissioners of Fulton County, Ga., have requested Live Nation cancel R. Kelly’s upcoming show at Wolf Creek Amphitheater on Aug. 25 after a campaign circulated urging radio stations and officials to reexamine giving Kelly any publicity, the Atlanta Constitution Journal reported.


The commissioners had the attorney for the county send a letter to Live Nation, who organized the event, to cancel the show, according to ACJ.


The request comes after a BuzzFeed story reported that Kelly was holding women in his homes, monitoring their every action, including what they eat, wear and do sexually.

The singer later called the allegations “crap” and confirmed he was still touring.


However, his next show in Virginia Beach, Va., reportedly was half empty of attendees.


Kelly then canceled upcoming concerts in Los Angeles, New Orleans and Baton Rouge and Dallas.


The upcoming Georgia concert has yet to be canceled by Live Nation.

R. Kelly slams cult speculation as ‘crap’


Kenyette Tisha Barnes has been making waves with the #MuteRKelly campaign where she asks Atlanta-area radio stations to stop playing the “Ignition” singer’s music.


Her campaign grabbed the attention of officials in Fulton County, leading to the request.


Another petition was also started after the allegations surfaced, demanding Sony drop R. Kelly from the label based on the accusations.


One of the alleged hostages of the artist, Jocelyn Savage, 21, has refuted the claims she is being held against her will -— despite her parents comments that she was “brainwashed.”
