R.Kelly has reportedly been booked to play a show in New York next month, after recently facing widespread allegations of sexual misconduct and imprisonment.
The show at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater, will mark one of his most prolific concert in years, but comes during a dark chapter in the singer’s career.
In April, it was revealed that Kelly faces investigation for knowingly transmitting an STD to a 19-year old woman.
As well as these investigations, he faces widespread claims of keeping women imprisoned in a sex cult.
He has denied all the claims.
A representative for Madison Square garden told Spin: “MSG has a long history of not censoring performers. We believe artists have the right to rent our venues to put on their own event, and that the public then has the choice whether or not to support that event.”
The concert is scheduled for September 15.
The legal issues also extend into R.Kelly’s personal circle, after his manager James Mason threatened the life of the father of one of Kelly’s girlfriends, according to reports by TMZ.
Timothy Savage, whose daughter Joycelyn Savage is reportedly one of Kelly’s ‘live-in girlfriends’ has been speaking out against the singer for a number of months. He says that the rapper has been keeping his daughter captive as part of an alleged “sex cult”.
