R.Kelly has angered fans by reportedly sending a 'stunt double' to perform in his place at a concert in LA over the weekend - it has been alleged by gig promoters.
The R&B crooner was due to perform live at Ced's All Black Affair, as advertised on leaflets and the Ticketmaster website. However, disappointed concert-goers claim that an impersonator was sent in Kelly's place.
"We was scammed because 10 o'clock we was there, no R. Kelly. 11 o'clock no R. Kelly, 12 o'clock no R. Kelly, 12:45 no R. Kelly. 1 o'clock here comes an impersonator," an attendee claimed.
KNOE.com reached out to the event promoter Cedric Johnson, who claims he was 'duped' and that he would be refunding half of the concertgoer's money. However, angry commenters on KNOE's website have refuted the promoter's claims, saying he was aware all along he wasn't hiring the real R Kelly.
The actual, genuine R Kelly appears on Lady Gaga's next single, 'Do What U Want', taken from her much-anticipated third album ARTPOP.
