Embattled United States RnB Singer, R Kelly has been paid a whooping sum of $22,000 for a one hour club appearance despite the sexual abuse charges against him.
The RnB singer appeared at the Dirty South Lounge in Springfield Illinois on Saturday to perform to a small crowd of about 50 people.
R Kelly was seen performing to the small crowd at the event. Though he didn’t have to sing, he yelled out the opening line to his hit song “Bump N’ Grind.”
According to reports, the singer paid $2K to his booking agent out of the $22,000 he received for the 1-hour appearance.
Before actually showing up for the performance, the singer took to his Instagram page to beg the media to tune down the fire on him when they see him in the club drinking and partying. He says he is just going to show up to collect a check.
