The King of R&B/ Pied Piper of R&B R. Kelly is desperately trying to save his image. According to reports the singer hires crisis team amid sex cult accusations.
Almost a week ago, R Kelly who has been accused keeping young women captive in an alleged sex cult, has signed up Bill Cosby’s former powerhouse attorney, Monique Pressley, sources exclusively revealed to DailyMail.com.
Page Six reports, R. Kelly’s message to his fans about a report that he is allegedly holding women in a “sex cult” is: “It’s a bunch of crap” — but he has hired a crisis team to fight the claims, which, sources tell Page Six, have some truth to them.
Kelly was responding to multiple families’ claims that he is housing their daughters in Chicago and Atlanta, where he brainwashes them and “records” them in sexual encounters.
His ticket sales have suffered since the families came out to BuzzFeed with the allegations. Concert dates in Dallas, New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La., were canceled due to low ticket sales — as fallout from the controversy.
A source told Page Six, “The promoter sent an e-mail to R. Kelly’s team and told them they were set to lose $400,000 if sales didn’t pick up fast. They canceled.”
