R. Kellyâ€™s promoter has been hit with a lawsuit by Ne-yo, after he was dropped from a support slot on Kellyâ€™s American tour in November 2007. Ne-yo is claiming that he was dropped because R. Kelly sucks and the audience liked him better. Okay, I made that up.
He was actually kicked off of the tour after two shows because he was getting a better response from the audience than Kelly. (So I was sort of right.)
Kellyâ€™s people are saying that Ne-yo never signed a contract, but Ne-yo is now saying that they had a verbal agreement.
Ne-yo is claiming that he lost out on $785,000 in earnings and is suing for breach of contract.
