Kelly reportedly arrived around 1:30 a.m., where he spent just over half an hour taking selfies, chatting, dancing, and smoking cigars with those who had gathered to see him.
He then grabbed a microphone, thanked his supporters, and sang 28 seconds of one of his songs before the venue closed at 3 p.m., reported WICS and WRSP.
The price was $ 100 for the event, but it was reduced to $ 50 after Kelly arrived, it was reported.
Hours before he appeared, Kelly announced the event on his official Instagram account and appealed to the media.
"I want the media to make things easy for me, man," Kelly said in the video. "This is how I can get paid now, for now."
Kelly has strongly denied any accusation of sexual misconduct.
Last month, his legal team filed a petition to ask the court to authorize Kelly to travel to Dubai to give shows because they claimed he had to work to pay child benefits and other bills.
Kelly & # 39; s lawyer, Steve Greenberg, told CNN in a statement about his appearance in the Dirty South Lounge: "A show was planned in Springfield months ago, and this was the" after-show "party."
"Although the show was canceled, the nightclub still asked him to appear," Greenberg said. "Because a commitment is a commitment that he lived up to, made the 3-hour ride and appeared, promotion and pricing was up to the club."
