R. Kelly announces overseas tour - CNN

The announcement promised shows in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

No further details were offered.

The singer is embroiled in renewed controversy in the wake of the recent Lifetime documentary "Surviving R. Kelly", which describes allegations of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia against the singer.

Kelly has consistently rejected the accusations, some of which date back to the past decades.

Kelly's lawyer Steve Greenberg told CNN on Wednesday that he "does not believe that's right" when he was asked about the referral announcement.

In 2017, the # MuteRKelly movement began to encourage radio stations to stop the singer's music.

Since then it has been extended to protest against Kelly's shows and to call on various companies, including RCA Records, Spotify and Apple Music to stop doing business with the singer.

Last month, Kelly and Sony – the parent company of Kelly's record label, RCA Records – reportedly broke up.

The singer has continued to book shows in recent months.

In November, the Tampa Bay Times reported that a scheduled protest of the Kelly's concert on the campus of the University of South Florida has never materialized.

& # 39; If there is someone inside who feels that they will be offended tonight, they have to leave because it is about to become a freakier than a mother, & # 39; the newspaper reported the Grammy-winning artist during his show.

Kelly & # 39; s announcement of his new shows was both furious and supported.

"Hopefully Kelz will do a tour here in Chicago or the US, he has fans who know he is #survivingGroupieLies," tweeted a person.

The German company Eventim promoted two concerts for Kelly in Germany in April.
