Ne-Yo sues R Kelly

He claims he was fired from tour for no good reason

Ne-Yo sues R Kelly
Ne-Yo has slapped Chicago-based star R Kelly with a six-figure lawsuit, claiming he was fired from a recent tour without a good reason.

The pair were set for the co-headlining ‘Double Up’ tour of North America late last year, but Ne-Yo performed just two shows when he says he was asked to leave.

He says that Kelly became jealous of the crowd’s enthusiasm for him.

The singer was paid $50,000 for two shows, but was originally supposed to be paid $785,000 for the tour.

The original reason for the split was cited as a contractual dispute.

R Kelly is no stranger to the courts, having recently appeared in front of a Chicago judge and narrowly escaping having his bail revoked.

The R&B crooner will finally stand trial in May to face 14 counts of child pornography charges.
