Fulton County officials sent a letter asking Live Nation to cancel troubled singer R. Kelly‘s upcoming concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater later this month.

The request came from Fulton County Commissioners who asked the county attorney to send the letter to Live Nation on behalf of the #MuteRKelly campaign.

Kenyette Tisha Barnes who created the #MuteRKelly asked commissioners to cancel the Aug. 25 concert, which is sold out.

“If our demands are not met, we’re prepared to protest the concert,” Barnes said.

Kelly, 50, is accused of keeping a group of women as sex slaves at 2 properties he rents in northeast Atlanta. Kelly vigorously denied the allegations through his attorney.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fulton County owns the Wolf Creek Amphitheater, but it is operated by Live Nation which holds a contract with the county.

Earlier Wednesday, a representative from Live Nation told the AJC the concert would go on as planned.

Kelly has already canceled three concert dates in Dallas, Los Angeles, and Baton Rouge due to poor ticket sales.

  • Music lover

    No this isn’t getting dragged ,his career is getting destroyed one piece at a time the way it seems.

  • Media Brainwashing

    So out of all his allegations, him having a polygamous relationship with legal women is the thing being protested? I don’t get it.

  • shun king

    kelly dont have little money not with all those song writing credits

  • On the radar….

    He’s a low key pedophile who just became or tried to be smarter by bringing em in at 19 years old. He was supposed to be grooming one of them to be his artist instead he out touring to make money to keep his sex slaves groomed. Don’t feel one drop of pity for him just because he’s black. He never changed even after being acquitted.

  • hotntot95

    His skin is the wrong shade to skate away clean without consequence…Charlie Sheen and Hugh Hefner can get away with this activity…Kelly will lose his little money.?..he can ask Cosby

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    ANNNNND he sells them to all the celebrities who “visit” the playboy mansion!! Let’s be very clear here BLACK MEN can not operate and move like white men so we need tos too comparing the two WE know it to be a FACT that black men can’t do they need to stop trying PERIOD

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I know! Then when Holly, one of his former girlfriend, sister wives described her dealings in the former Playboy compound, mansion, it was so gross! But, in America, he’s an icon and highly respected!

  • MsPam

    Just because the yt did it, it makes the black man doing it okay?!” Rolling my eyes”

  • Neva RuthLess

    Thank you. Black men really think they can treat black women and children any ole way because of what the white man doing. So as black women can we get black men locked up for false assault because white women do it and get away with it? I’m really tired of black men.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I don’t know what he is doing or not doing in his home or if the GROWN ASS WOMEN are willing participants or not.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Black men rape, beat, molest, and kill black women and children enough. I don’t feel bad that black men can’t live out their perversion without the white police officers. It’s bad enough what black men get away with when it comes to black women and children.

  • what?why

    This seems to be the MO of Live Nation – low life entertainers abusing women (young and old).

  • shun king

    yes he is a magazine owner/editor who doing the same….and i dont think kelly have to manipulate anybody

  • On the radar….

    ???? Do you really need me to break it down, pedophile supporter.

    i not supporting a pedo i think r kelly need sharia punishment in my eyes i am just saying they both doing the same thing…..the females in question are all legal

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Attention my people! Pedophiles not gonna magically start liking legal puss! They been smashin that puss since it was 15-16. It NOW just happens to be 18-21 of age.

  • On the radar….

    It’s not the fact that they are legal, people are missing the point. His music may be the shit but that man preys on young girls who are gullible. And while they are considered grown put your grown daughter, your grown little sister in this situation. You would not like it. My bad, maybe you would. After all, Kellz is the man. Hugh Hefner had a Playboy mansion as well as Playboy magazine what did you think goes on there?

    With ALL his legal woes, back taxes, old and new allegations, I’m surprised he is still around this long! I can’t believe folks still go to his crappy ass shows and buy his music!

    if my grown daughter or little sister did it its a fact they are grown and make they own decisions i might not like it but its their life…you think adults should toe the line of others opinions?

  • On the radar….

    No, but I don’t have to support him and his music just because people like you do. Apparently, the decline in his ticket sales shows that other people won’t support him either.

  • bella28498 .

    lol….and I will kick his money can over

  • bella28498 .

    he smash 12 year olds as well

  • Tammie Reed

    I went to the Playboy mansion years ago and was looking around waiting for all the action that they said supposedly takes place in the grotto etc. I ain’t see a damn thing and Hugh Hefner is OLD as Methuselah! I doubt he still getting it in, I was turned off by all the wrinkles in his face, cool guy though!

    When I visited, he had the three girlfriends Holly, Kendra and Bridget and I didn’t care for Kendra she was a total bitch! The party was lit, food EVERYWHERE, drinks galore whatever you wanted. Mansion was not as big as you would imagine from looking at it on tv or in magazines. Its very dated and needs redecorating. I had fun though and will always remember that experience. I met so many celebs there that are all doing huge things now.

  • On the radar….

    I don’t doubt anything you said as I have heard similar stories. I recall when he put the mansion on the market with the stipulation that he is able to still live there. Many celebrities as well have said how much of a good time they had there. That was its purpose. I see him and want to throw up but hey to each its own ?

    I dont agree with Rkelly in the slightest, and I do believe the allegations have some validity. However the man has not been convicted of anything, yet people are trying to find a way to strip him of everything. It just goes to show the disparity in how black men are treated in committing “crime”. The dude from seventh heaven was an actual convicted child molester yet you never heard anything from the story. Smh its very unfair.

    Now!

    You’re welcome

  • yvette46

    Not condoning this pedophile. But, white guy from Sister Wives have four wives and 14 children which is illegal but he gets a television show. Let’s not forget Hugh Hefner he’s 90 with children running around but he is not bothered. Marv Albert chewed a woman up like Hannibal Lecter and he still has his daytime job. Roman Polanski raped a thirteen-year-old used drugs, perversion sodomy, lewd and lascivious act upon a child under fourteen and, furnished a controlled substance to a minor he was 43 yrs old and he still making movies I can go on and on Black man do the same thing and he is dragged through the mud. Why don’t we see that in the media on a daily? We all no why because R has the wrong skin color.. If Bill was another color there wouldn’t have been a trail at all and we would continue to see re-runs of his show. Hell, Rosemary’s Baby is on every other weekend. .

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    This guy here. All the things this guy could be doing, it’s always back to sex or something not appropriate. If I had a quarter of his success, I’d be overseas somewhere getting that long money doing shows. No way would I devote energy to silly bs like this or Sparkle’s niece from yesteryear, the 14 y/o he pissed on. Bruh, stop it. I would say would he want someone doing this stuff to his daughter, but…..

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I’ve been scrolling past this on Netflix. I’m grilling out tomorrow, so I’ll decline to watch this until after I’m done eating Friday. Grilling Thursday, food leftover, etc. I only make an exception to eat leftovers after a cookout or big holiday feast.

  • freelancepimp .

    Again disrupting black folks lives without due process. People are fools if they think this will only affect RKelly. This will set a precedent. Anybody they don’t like they will just shut down without due process. And that works in numbers. And when he come it racist white folks who don’t want to see no black person prosper they have the numbers.

    Example; Ray Rice. Once Ray Rice was dealt with by the legal system they went after his lively hood, his job. No one condones what he did but once the legal system judged him accordingly the only way to continue lynching him is to take away his job. Ever since Ray Rice lost his job public outrage has run rampant and taken other people’s jobs. it’s not just politicians, athletes and public figures either. I admit its cool when some trash disrespects Michelle Obama but just cause you disagree with someone doesn’t mean you should be able to keep them from earning. Again, this shit is bigger than RKelly. How many of us really think Bill Cosby raped those women or just slept with them and their careers never panned out.

    He’s pretty much responsible for all of those mediocre X-men movies. Also there was a documentary called “An Open Secret” which fingered him amongst others in Hollywood for pedophilia but execs managed to keep it out of theaters. Look it up on youtube.

  • NicoleZee

    He’s a sick child molester and womanizer that shouldn’t be given the time of day. He won’t stop harming girls and young women until he is put down or in prison. If lawmakers would allow child molesters and rapists to be executed, the world would be a slightly better place. But there again, some of the same people making and amending our laws are the main ones breaking them. Sick and sad.

    You can do it. Unless we become farmers, we shouldn’t eat from these folks. Gotta learn how to grow our food. Just like our nomadic ancestors did. It’d really bad in North Carolina.

    The pig farming industry is disgusting.

    Pigs defecate in their stalls.

    Feces flows into pool
    It goes into water system
    Then, it mixes in with the water that’s used to water the nearby farm fields

    Bunch of folks living with cancer, asthma and various ailments.

    Check it out on Netflix

  • Coy little wink

    So u saying the water is bad and/or the pork? All over NC or one particular area?

  • NicoleZee

    True, but everyone knows he likes little girls. Plenty of child molesters never get caught. Hopefully one day he will get what’s coming to him. If the system doesn’t get him then somebody’s daddy will hopefully blow his sick brains out. It’s sad that it will probably take him hurting someone else for anything to be done. Sickening.

    But that’s the thing. R. Kelly’s coins haven’t been affected though. Recently a few shows have been cancelled but year after year black folks have been supporting him. He’s been free to continue to make music, tour, etc. Those white perverts, you don’t see or hear from most of them currently.
