R Kelly announces Australian tour amid #MuteRKelly backlash

On the same night that Surviving R. Kelly was finally aired to United Kingdom audiences, the musician stated his intention to continue touring.

Either R. Kelly is living in denial or he has a publicity team that cares nothing about him because for some reason the embattled R&B star posted a message on Twitter and Instagram Tuesday, announcing an upcoming tour in Australia, New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

R. Kelly has since deleted his tweet announcing his Australian tour, without an explanation.

This follows a previous Australian tour announcement that was cancelled virtually as quickly as it was announced in December, one in which venues listed on the run of dates claimed they were never booked for the shows in the first place.

R. Kelly is still dealing with the long-overdue fallout of his repeated (alleged, he stresses so the lawyers don't give him a wedgie) misconduct; behaviour that was re-highlighted following the Surviving R. Kelly documentary series which aired in early January. Flamingo Dreamz has previously toured Ciara, Fatman Scoop, Ja Rule and more.

R. Kelly's announcement was met with criticism on social media.

Allegations of sexually abusive behavior by Kelly toward young women date back more than 20 years.

Australia's opposition party has called for the government to ban the singer from coming to Australia by blocking any visa application. Both Chris Brown and Floyd Mayweather have been denied entry before. "You for sure aren't welcome here in Australia buddy?" another tweet read.

Mr Coleman's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Last month, it was reported that the Ignition hitmaker was seeking a new distributor for his music after the Lifetime series Surviving R. Kelly thrust allegations of physical, sexual and emotional abuse against women into the spotlight.

A lawyer for Kelly has stated that the R&B singer strongly denies the string of sexual abuse allegations.
