R. Kelly deletes tweet about in­ter­na­tional tour

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

R. Kelly said Tues­day he is plan­ning an in­ter­na­tional tour, but an Aus­tralian law­maker wants the coun­try to bar him from per­form­ing there if the con­cert plan goes for­ward.

The em­bat­tled mu­si­cian an­nounced on so­cial me­dia Tues­day that he’ll be go­ing to Aus­tralia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka, but the tweet was later deleted.

“See y’all soon” the post said, ac­com­pa­nied by a pic­ture of Kelly and the dec­la­ra­tion “The King of R&B.” No dates or venues were re­vealed.

Kelly’s ca­reer has been sti­fled since a #MuteRKelly cam­paign gained mo­men­tum last year to protest his al­leged sex­ual abuse of women and girls, which Kelly de­nies.

Aus­tralia has de­nied en­try to other for­eign­ers on char­ac­ter grounds, among them trou­bled R&B singer Chris Brown, con­victed clas­si­fied doc­u­ment leaker Chelsea Man­ning, an­ti­vaxxer Kent Heck­en­lively and Gavin McInnes, founder of the all-male far-right group Proud Boys.
