|R Kelly Denied Permit To Host Concert In Illinois
Under fire RnB singer, R Kelly, was denied permission to host a concert in Springfield by officials in Illinois in the wake of the current sexual misconduct allegations trailing him.
Illinois Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Denise Albert told the Chicago Tribune that the application for the Spring Break Jam in April was denied on Thursday following security concerns after protesters clashed outside Kelly’s Chicago studio.
Kelly has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct involving women and underage girls after Lifetime aired a documentary “Surviving R. Kelly,” where a number of women including his ex-wife Andrea Kelly chronicled their alleged ordeal in the hands of the singer.
A call that Kelly was holding two women against their will prompted Chicago police to visit his residence Friday in Chicago’s Trump Tower. Officers interviewed him and the women but found no evidence of wrongdoing.
