"Your Honor, I was Trapped in the Closet"

R. Kelley is being sued by a Nevada-based promoter for allegedly failing to appear at a scheduled performance.
[Plaintiff] claims that Kelly agreed to hit the stage on December 6, 2007
at the Target Center alongside Keyshia Cole and Ne-Yo. Allegedly, Kelly
failed to show but still took a $120,000 fee for it.

Ne-Yo You Didn't!

Ne-Yo, who was cut from R. Kelly's tour, filed suit in Los Angeles on Dec. 31 against Rowe Entertainment for alleged breach of contract. According to Entertainment Weekly ("Monitor", Issue #974 - Jan. 18, 2008), Ne-Yo claims he was "fired for getting too much attention".

A simple Google search for "Rowe Entertainment" indicates that the defendant is no stranger to litigation.
