Ne-Yo gets $700,000 from concert promoter

Judge orders payout after R Kelly row

Ne-Yo has been awarded $700,000 (£350,000) after suing a concert promoter in the USA for unfair dismissal from an R Kelly tour last year.

The rapper was dropped from the tour after the promoter allegedly thought he had upstaged Kelly – which Ne-Yo denies.

According to, an LA judge has now ruled that Rowe Entertainment have to pay Ne-Yo and his touring company the cash.
