R Kelly Rakes In $22k For One-Hour Club Appearance
R. Kelly is still a popular man because he reportedly just got $22,000 for a one-hour club appearance, despite his ongoing sexual abuse cases.
As we reported, Kelly was out and about on Saturday trying to get his coins. The singer made a club appearance at the Dirty South Lounge in Springfield, Illinois, where he had a small crowd gathered jamming to his hit “Bump N’ Grind.”
TMZ reports that sources close to Kelly’s deal reveal that he was paid $22k for just one hour! Kelly got to keep $20k, and paid his booking agent $2k in total. Apparently, in the contract he didn’t even have to sing, he just had to make an appearance, but, he threw a few hits in there anyway.
Prior to his gig, Kelly took to Instagram to ask the media to take it easy on him as he still had to get his bag regardless of what was going on. We can’t knock him for his hustle.
