R. Kelly is being sued by a Minneapolis concert promoter for missing a scheduled performance at the Target Center, even though a judge ordered him to cancel the show so he can show up for court on time.
The Nevada-based promoter Royalty Records has filed the lawsuit in Atlanta District Court seeking the return of their $120,000 payment to Kelly, plus unspecified damages.
Royalty claims that Kelly took the payment, but "never intended" to perform at the Dec. 20, 2007 show, which had been pushed back from its original scheduled date of Dec. 6th.
A call to Kelly’s rep returned no answer. The concert was part of his Double Up tour.
