R. Kelly Pee'd Off over Scam Allegations

6/23/2009 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

R. Kelly has been dragged into a massive investigation in South Africa -- but the singer claims he's the victim of a grifter gone mad.

It all started when a woman accused of scamming more than 50 people out of tons of money claimed Kelly played a part in the plot.

She allegedly conned her victims into investing money in an R. Kelly tour that never existed. The woman reportedly says she deposited the money into Kelly's bank account.

She's been charged with more than 60 counts of fraud -- and Kelly is wanted for questioning.

Kelly is vehemently denying involvement -- his publicist said:

"The woman has no connection at all with R. Kelly. This is just some con woman who swindled a bunch of people out of money. R. Kelly had no knowledge of this, he's just as upset as anyone."

So where is all the proof that shows that the money really went into his account. All you guys just jump on the bandwagon and begin accuse him of stuff that he isn't even involved in, But wait i figure you all out if, TMZ reports it, it must be true and since a lady who is a scammer said so it must also be true as well. you all are no better then the comments in which you have posted. And you know he was found not guilty of the child pron case.

She must have shown him a picture of her young daughter. He'll do just about anything to pee on a young girl. He even videotaped himself pissing on a teenager just before having sex with her. Yet, he went to court and got away with. What a child molesting creep!
