SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – R. Kelly gave a 28-second performance and spent about half an hour more hobnobbing with fans paying $ 50 to $ 100 to see him at a club in Springfield's Illinois capital.
The R&B singer posted a video on his Instagram page hours before the early Sunday show in the Dirty South Lounge. In the video, Kelly calls on the media to take it easy and says he must act to make money in the middle of the case of sexual abuse he faces.
TV stations WICS and WRSP report that about 100 people were at the 450-personscapa club to see Kelly, who arrived at 1.30 p.m. There was an admission fee of $ 100, which was reduced to $ 50 as soon as Kelly arrived.
Kelly thanked supporters, sang a line from one of his songs for 28 seconds, and spent about 35 minutes taking selfies and talking to fans.
The stations report that some fans said it was not worth the $ 100 and that they would not pay again.
Fans also said they were accusing the & # 39; artist & # 39; divorce.
