R. Kelly Denies He’s Performing At Trump’s Inauguration

R. Kelly Denies He's Performing At Trump's Inauguration ( 4UMF NEWS ) R. Kelly Denies He's Performing At Trump's Inauguration: The world’s greatest won’t be gracing Donald Trump’s inauguration. R. Kelly struck down rumors that he’d be performing at the ceremony with a cheeky message Thursday. “Despite the rumors circulating online, R. Kelly will not be performing at this year’s inauguration ceremony,” read a message on a bright yellow background on the “Ignition” singer’s Twitter. “Any reports stating otherwise are simply untrue.” Those rumors, however, didn’t stem from the President-elect’s flimsy dance card after being turned down by countless celebrities. Instead, the stream of speculation came from unsubstantiated allegations that, in 2013, Trump paid Russian prostitutes to defile a Ritz-Carlton bed where President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama had previously stayed. R. Kelly faced similar allegations in 2002 when a video surfaced of him allegedly having sex with and urinating on an underage girl. He was found not guilty on 14 counts of child pornography, which could have resulted in 15 years of prison, in 2008. Trump called the report “fake news” at his press conference Wednesday. Source
