Bad news for fans of artists who like to urinate on teenage girls R. Kelly: the musician has been forced to cancel a number of appearances this week due to what his rep is describing as a "health emergency."
The artist was scheduled to appear at a book launch in New York City tonight, but has been "sidelined in Chicago," according to an insider who tells TMZ:
"We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused."
Kelly has also backed out of a performance on Jimmy Fallon and on The Today Show, with his camp telling the site:
"Initial indications are that he is suffering from complications from surgery he had last year to treat an abscess on his vocal cords... It is unclear how long Kelly may be sidelined."
We wish the controversial singer a full recovery. We guess.
