R Kelly Soulacoaster The Diary Of Me

A statement from his publicist Sarah Rothman says, “While on his way to New York this morning to celebrate the publication of his long-awaited memoir “SoulaCoaster,” multi-platinum R&B superstar R. Kelly was taken ill and had to return to Chicago for medical treatment. Initial indications are that he is suffering from complications from surgery he had last year to treat an abscess on his vocal cords. As a result, Kelly has had to cancel appearances on “The Jimmy Fallon Show” and NBC’s “Today” as well as a book party that was being held in his honor. It is unclear how long Kelly may be sidelined”.

The statement is somewhat strange in that Kelly has surgery on his tonsils last year, not his vocal cords but this case is suspected of being related to vocal cords.

Kelly was the launch his book ‘Soulacoaster: The Diary Of Me’. “From the crippling learning disorder that rendered him unable to read or write, to the teacher/mentor who prophesized that his destiny was in music, not basketball, we follow his evolution from Chicago street performer to struggling L.A. musician and beyond. Kelly reveals his hard-won ascent to superstardom and his battle to move forward after legal and personal ordeals that threatened to destroy his life,” the book blurb reads.

He has no live dates scheduled until October.
