R. Kelly’s 28 Second Show

922 0

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (CelebrityAccess) – Embattled R&B artist R. Kelly gave a 28-second performance at a club in Springfield on Sunday, with fans paying up to $100 for admission to the show.

According to local news outlets WICS and WRSP, about 100 people were at the 450-person-capacity Dirty South Lounge for the show.

Kelly reportedly arrived at 1:30 a.m. and thanked fans for turning out before performing a line from one of his songs.

He then spent about 35 minutes in an ad-hoc meet-n-greet, taking pictures and shaking hands with fans.

The club charged a $100 entrance fee, which dropped to $50 once R. Kelly arrived, the stations reported.

Some fans expressed discontent with the short performance, noting that they were unlikely to have paid for such a brief ‘show’ the WCIS/WRSP said.

“I really think his camaraderie was very good to be able to socialize with the general population, but I don’t understand why we paid $100 and we didn’t hear him sing not one song,” one fan, Quentora Dumas, told the stations.

Kelly is currently facing prosecution over the alleged sexual abuse of 4 women, 3 of whom were minors at the time of the alleged abuse.
