R Kelly Wins Huge Financial Reward From Tour Promoter

October 7, 2008
R Kelly Wins Huge Financial Reward From Tour PromoterR Kelly has been awarded $3.4million from his former concert promoter, Leonard Rowe, who failed to pay the R&B star's performance fees.

An arbitrator granted the award last month after R Kelly said he had not received full payments from shows in 2007 and 2008.

Legal documents show that Mr Rowe initially disputed the claims but failed to offer a defence.

R Kelly has now taken the case to a Los Angeles court in a bid to receive payment.

Last month, Ne-Yo was awarded $700,320 in damages from a concert promoter after he was removed from the same tour with Kelly.
