R. Kelly is accused of holding women against their will in his homes. A BuzzFeed story says the Grammy-winning singer runs an "abusive cult." The story cites three sets of parents of women allegedly living with Kelly. The women are forbidden to contact their families, the story says. These women live in Kelly's homes in Chicago and Johns creek, according to the report. Johns Creek police: "No further investigation is being conducted at this time."
Kenyette Tisha Barnes, who is part of a #MuteRKelly campaign that seeks to pressure Atlanta radio stations to stop playing the R&B artist’s music, asked commissioners to revoke the contract with Live Nation for the Aug. 25 concert at Wolf Creek Amphitheater.
“If our demands are not met, we’re prepared to protest the concert,” Barnes said.
Fulton County owns the venue, but it is operated by Live Nation. Earlier Wednesday, a representative from Live Nation said the concert would go on as planned.
Kelly has already canceled shows in New Orleans, Dallas, Los Angeles and Baton Rouge, La.
A county spokesperson said the ultimate decision belongs to Live Nation, but the request to cancel was based on community input.
