R. Kelly Undergoes Emergency Throat Surgery
R. Kelly has been topping charts ever since he first emerged onto the scene in 1992. Winning a multitude of awards – as well as writing, producing and remixing tracks for the likes of Aaliyah and Michael Jackson – the R&B star has had an extremely healthy career. During his current 'Love Letter' tour, R. Kelly had to be rushed to hospital to undergo surgery...
After complaining of a severely sore throat, the singer went to see a specialist where it was discovered that he had an abscess on one of his tonsils. Whether or not he will be able to continue this tour is currently uncertain.
Rushed into surgery in Chicago earlier this week, he tweeted: "I’d like to thank everybody for their love, concern and support. I WILL BE BACK!"
We wish him a speedy recovery.
