R Kelly

R. Kelly has deleted a social media post announcing his upcoming international tour after backlash on Instagram.com. The "I Believe I Can Fly" singer took to his Instagram account on Wednesday to inform his international fans he was headed out on the road to Australia, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka later this year.

"NEW TOUR ALERT, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka see y'all soon!," Kelly wrote alongside a flyer announcing the tour.

But 24 hours later, the post vanished from Kelly's Instagram page after furious backlash from Kelly's fans who are still disturbed by the allegations made by women who claim Kelly abused them in his home dungeon.

Following the announcement on Wednesday, Shayne Neumann, Australia's Labor Party’s shadow minister for immigration and border protection, told Britain's The Independent newspaper that his party would support Kelly being denied a visa to the country.

"Labor strongly supports the refusal or cancellation of visas of non-citizens on character or criminal grounds,” he said. "Labor would be seriously concerned if immigration minister David Coleman would allow an individual such as R Kelly into Australia."

Australia has previously denied visas to singer Chris Brown and boxer Floyd Mayweather, both of whom have been accused of domestic abuse in the past.

Kelly has been dominating headlines in recent weeks thanks to the release of the documentary series Surviving R. Kelly, which detailed the decades of physical, sexual, and mental abuse allegations leveled against the star by a string of women.

He has firmly denied all the claims made against him.

    This R. Kelly shit is so stupid. So lavishing 21 and older women with the finer things in life is the new coursing for sex.

  • Shamwow

  • Michelle Peele

    She better hope Ashanit is available to be singing behind the stage so she can lip sync. Word on the street is that Ashanti was doing the singing on JHo's singles

  • Ni Ni

    Last i read, he was supposed to be moving Bali, i believe it was, because he cant be extradited back to the USA in the event those #metoo charges stick.

  • Michelle Peele

    he still be tweeting tho...lol...from abroad i suppose smh!

  • Tinytoon

    I read that yesterday. People was coming hard at her. She can't sing and has mediocre acting skills. Is she the only one available?? I'm sure Fantasia, Jill Scott, Jennifer Hudson and other black singers are available.

  • Kim’s Original Face

  • Trace da Ace

    chile....I said this yesterday!! They should be ashamed of even asking her to do it.....out of all of the talented singers..hell I would have even taken Beyonce!!!

  • millz

    If you listen to her music you can hear and recognize Ashanti voice on background and the hooks especially the songs with Ja Rule

  • LYRICS

    Been hearing the Ashanti J-low rumors for some time and I can't lie on certain songs, the vocals sound like Ashanti. This could be why Ashanti isn't as "up front, and center" as Low is, but "they" keep Ashanti around b/c she is the real talent..

  • Maxx

    She's the best!

    He can end it easily by letting his harem girls have relationships with their parents.

  • Reese

    Can he be picked up by ICE and deported to anywhere but earth?!?!

  • TwitterFingerz

    I knew announcing that tour was bad. Nobody's going from the US so it was unnecessary.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Love me some Fantasia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Desi

    Who is advising this fool. If I was being looked at for underage sex offenses. I would be laying low until this all blows over, stop messing around with anyone even promotly young, take my black behind to therapy, give a bunch of money to charity, make a public apology and resurfaced with cool new public image. Narcissist

  • Ms Thang

    He thinks that he’s untouchable because of all the people that supports him.

  • KcoolMuziq

    People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones..

  • Let them eat cake

    ashanti confirmed it.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Yep, usually that's the case with abusers. And YES, usually they do have supporters.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    He's probably not coming back.

  • Rita

    I'm not watching...and will be SuperPetty...turning my TV's on different channels LOLOL!

  • Rita

    Should've went hard on the Grammys...

  • dontgetblocked

    The man does not have any criminal charges against him. His harem consists of grown women who choose to be with him so they can travel to exotic locations like New Zealand while we sit back tossing around useless opinions.

  • Shamwow

    No. the video above expands on how Rkelly met Sparkle. She was married to one of the guys from his group public announcement. One that left because he was upset with R.
