R. Kelly Calls Sex Cult Allegations 'Crap,' Moving Forward With His Tour

I am happy where I'm at: Moreover the parents of 21-year-old Joycelyn Savage have claimed that Kelly was holding her captive in the cult which she has denied

R Kelly has officially declared the rumours to be "crap" in a recent video, in which he insists he will be going ahead with his planned U.S. tour.

"Despite all of the crap y'all hearing I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show", he says in the footage, referring to three consecutive concerts that kick off tonight (July 28) in Virginia Beach. There are even claims that Kelly directs them to perform sexual acts when he videotapes. In the clip, he also made sure to emphasize that all the stories being spread about him are false.

R. Kelly is returning to the stage despite allegations that he's holding and harming women in a "cult", which he calls "a bunch of crap" in a new message for his fans. I hope to see y'all there. One of Kelly's alleged captives has denied that she's being held against her will, and has insisted that she's fine.

In a statement given to Pitchfork, R. Kelly's attorney Linda Mensch said: "Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him".

She addressed "my family, but especially my dad" Timothy Savage, saying that 'you know the situation that had happened that night when I went to meet R Kelly'.

'We can only wonder why folks would persist in defaming a great artist who loves his fans, works 24/7, and takes care of all of the people in his life, ' R Kelly's lawyer previously told Buzzfeed. In fact, the media attention has boosted Kelly's image, and apparently many of his East Coast shows have either sold out or increased the volume of tickets, according to TMZ.

R. Kelly's East Coast tour stops include Virginia Beach, Baltimore, Maryland, White Plains, New York and Mount Pleasant and Detroit in MI.
