The embattled entertainer, R. Kelly announced a new tour on social media Tuesday that he’ll be going to Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka. “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.

Lifetime’s documentary series Surviving R. Kelly last month drew even more attention to the allegations, and his record label has reportedly dropped him.
Kelly is a multi-platinum R&B star who has not only notched multiple hits for himself, but also many high-profile performers.
