R. Kelly Hosted Concert Denied Permit By The State Of Illinois

R. Kelly performs during The Buffet Tour at Allstate Arena on May 7, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois.

R. Kelly has another professional disappointment as a concert he was supposed to host has been denied a permit in Illinois due to the renewed criminal allegations which surfaced due to the new Lifetime Network series, Surviving R. Kelly.

The Hollywood Reporter says that a concert which was supposed to take place in Springfield, Illinois in April, called The Spring Break Jam will not be issued a permit due to their affiliation with singer R. Kelly who was supposed to host the musical event.

Illinois Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Denise Albert says that the permit was primarily denied due to concerns over the protests which seem to follow R.

The singer has denied all of the allegations.
