R&B musician R. Kelly has angered fans after allegedly sending an impersonator to perform in his place at a concert in Louisiana this weekend – or at least that’s what the promoters say.
“We was scammed because 10 o’clock we was there, no R. Kelly. 11 o’clock no R. Kelly, 12 o’clock no R. Kelly, 12:45 no R. Kelly. 1 o’clock here comes an impersonator,” says one of the attendees, while other adds “the advertisement online through Ticketmaster said that it was a Ced’s All Black Affair and R. Kelly performing live which did not happen last night.”
While the news reports say an impersonator came in place of R. Kelly, I’ve talked to a few radio DJ’s that I know in the city who say it was in fact R. Kelly. Turns out Kellz was paid for a walk through, NOT a concert or performance. He was simply paid to show up and party for 15-20 minutes. Also, the promoter says it wasn’t him who contacted the news station. The statement about him being duped and giving refunds is false.
