R. Kelly has canceled his appearances on the "Love Letter Cruise," saying he was never paid for the upcoming gig, reports TMZ. Kelly had been hired by Concerts Cruise LLC to perform two shows on the five-day outing from Miami to the Caribbean, but his representative says the company hasn't paid the star.
"R. Kelly had been looking forward to the cruise and was ready, willing and able to perform for fans. He is sorry for any disappointment but plans to see his fans very soon on a U.S. tour," said a rep for Kelly.
The "Love Letter Cruise" was set for October, with tickets priced from $999-$2,999. Concerts Cruise LLC informed customers over email that they will "handle all applicable refunds at point of purchase."
