R. Kelly axes concert cruise

R. Kelly has pulled out of a planned concert cruise amid allegations of a financial dispute with organisers.

The I Believe I Can Fly star was due to play two concerts onboard a holiday ship during a five-day voyage in October (12), sailing from Miami, Florida to the Caribbean.


However, a representative for Kelly has now confirmed the singer has axed plans to set sail on the Love Letter cruise.


The spokesperson says, "R. Kelly had been looking forward to the cruise and was ready, willing and able to perform for fans. He is sorry for any disappointment but plans to see his fans very soon on a U.S. tour."


No reason is given for the cancellation, but TMZ.com reports promoters Concerts Cruise LLC allegedly failed to pay him.
