R. Kelly Sued -- Disorder in the Court!

1/31/2008 4:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

R. Kelly ditched a big gig in Minneapolis because -- miraculously -- he had to show up for a court appearance in Chicago, and now a concert promoter wants his money back, and is trying to haul the elusive R. into an Atlanta court. Good luck with that.
R. Kelly lawsuit
In a suit filed in Atlanta District Court, the Nevada-based promoter Royalty Records (through its associate company Marjani Clothing) alleges Kelly agreed to perform at Target Center on December 6, 2007 with Ne-Yo and Keyshia Cole, among others. Then he moved the show to the 20th ... except on that day, R. got dragged into court in Chicago -- on threat of arrest.

Royalty says in the complaint that Kelly "never intended" to do the show, even though he took a $120,000 fee for it. That's the dollar amount Royalty wants, plus unspecified damages. R. Kelly's lawyer couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

No word on how many decades the case will take to bring to court.

This is just another case of some nobody trying to extort from a celebrity. Never heard of this self-promoter. If he can't write up the contract properly then he shouldn't be in the business.

R kelly s a joke he needs to realize that the courts are not to be played with
How is it that he had a concert in minnesota and end up cancelling it due to the weather when really it was because his buses got pulled over by the police in utah. He got caught "SPEEDING" as so called one of his songs. haha ha. Guilty anyone?

He deserves each and every case that he has right now. . . SICK ASS PERVERT!

I guess he is just trying to Scrape up every little penny that he can get before he goes to prison. But in doing so, he stepped on everybody that was insignificant to him.. . . . I guess he doesn't really care about his fans.

R. Kelly has been a consistent concert performer. So, there shouldn't been any concerns that Kelly wouldn't perform.
Also, I do know how to count. I was rehearsing for my next gig, and Diane beat me by 12 seconds maybe,
