Tons of women waiting to throw their panties at R. Kelly won’t even get the chance to celebrate the alleged king of golden showers, now that several tour dates have been canceled after reports that the singer allegedly held women hostage in his home.

The king of bumping and grinding with those barely legal to buy alcohol has had a hell of a month. BuzzFeed posted a blistering article alleging that the singer was basically running a “sex cult” from his Georgia and Illinois homes. Kelly and his attorney vehemently denied the accusations and said that they were looking into legal retaliation against the accusers, who are parents of the women allegedly being held hostage.


Kelly’s After Party Tour launched in July, and it seems that several dates have already been canceled, according to Ticketmaster’s website. Dates at UNO Lakefront Arena, New Orleans (Aug. 11), Raising Cane’s River Center Arena, Baton Rouge, La.; and Music Hall at Fair Park, Dallas, have been axed, with only seven remaining. In all probability, poor ticket sales were the reason the shows were canceled.

TMZ reports that Friday’s concert in Virginia Beach, Va., was barely half full, but that didn’t stop concertgoers from attempting to get a chance to rub all over the singer. What’s amazing is that even after years of allegations, people are still willing to reach for his crotch during his shows and throw their soiled undergarments at him.
