R. Kelly was awarded $3.4 million in back pay from his most recent tour after the tour's promoter "swindled" Kelly and others involved. Kelly's legal dispute with promoter Rowe Entertainment dates back to February, while Kelly was still on the road. Leonard Rowe was accused of selling shares of Kelly concerts in exchange for cash investments, but then falsely told the investors that the concerts lost money. "I agreed to let Leonard Rowe promote my tour because he convinced me he was an underdog who deserved a chance to prove himself. Like the saying goes, 'No good deed goes unpunished,'" Kelly said in a statement. "I have complete sympathy for all the good people who were swindled by Rowe, and I will do everything I can to help them get their money back from him."
