R. Kelly issued a statement early Monday apologizing to fans in Memphis for the cancellation of his Sunday night concert. "The decision to cancel the show was by the promoter, in breach of their agreement and out of Mr. Kelly's control," his statement read. "He's sorry his Memphis fans are disappointed and will do his best to make it up to them soon. As always, he thanks all of his fans for their support." A message on FedExForum’s home page says the cancellation was “due to unforeseen circumstances.” No further information, including about any refunds, is given. The R&B singer has faced an outcry and a string of canceled concerts after allegations surfaced that he kept young women in a “sex cult,” including one woman with Memphis ties.
