R. Kelly has finally spoken up on allegations that he is running a sex cult.
R. Kelly uploaded a video to Twitter Thursday and, predictably called the allegations against him “a bunch of crap.”
In addition to denying the accusations, the embattled R&B singer also revealed that he’s moving forward with his scheduled ‘The After Party Tour’, which is set to hit the East Coast in a few weeks.
“It’s your boy Kelz. And I just wanted to let all of my fans out there know that despite all of the crap that y’all hearing. I will be coming to the East Coast to do my show. And believe me y’all. It’s a bunch of crap. Aight? I hope to see y’all there. I love y’all,” R. Kelly stated in the video.
This far, it appears the accusations haven’t hindered Kelly’s ability to sell tour tickets. TMZ reported earlier this month that Kelly’s tour will go on, and that his August 5 Detroit date is nearly sold out.
Kelly is scheduled to visit many cities as part of his ‘The After Party Tour’, including College Park, Georgia, Virginia Beach, Virginia, and Baltimore, Maryland.
Despite the tour going on as planned, thousands have demanded that the artist be dropped from his label, Sony Records. A petition urging Sony to #DropRKelly has received almost 35,000 signatures.
