R. Kelly’s Past Haunts Him!

Published

Fans still aren’t over R. Kelly’s controversial past.

The Pied Piper was originally set to perform at Labor Day weekend’s The Fashion Meets Music Festival in Ohio, but after some hefty backlash and protests, the festival has decided to remove the singer from the lineup.

“R. Kelly is sorry to disappoint his fans but looks forward to seeing them in the near future during one of his upcoming tours,” Kels rep wrote in a statement on Monday.

After the festival announced that the singer had been added to the lineup, people began to complain about the 47-year-old’s legal past, including the 2002 indictment on 21 counts of having sex with a minor. Two bands from the line up, Damn the Witch Siren and Saintseneca pulled out from the show after learning about R. Kelly’s involvement and radio station WCBE pulled their sponsorship.

“We feel [R. Kelly’s] selection as a performer ignores his very serious allegations of sexual violence and assault,” Saintseneca said in a statement. “We feel it is an affront to all survivors, who are already often overlooked and forgotten in our society.”

The three day event will be held at Columbus’ Arena District with performances by O.A.R., Michelle Williams, Paper Diamond and Destructo.

DMX Is Clean, Sober And Plans To Stay That Way!

It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!

The rapper’s lengthy history with drug abuse has been well documented by his many arrest and sometimes bizarre behavior, but Dark Man X is putting all of that behind him.

X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.

Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.

Congrats to DMX!
