LOS ANGELES, Jan. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- "The idea that R. Kelly had
anything to do with Ne-Yo being dropped from the Double Up tour is just
plain silly. As we said at the time, Ne-Yo was dropped because of a
contractual dispute with the tour promoter, and in fact Ne-Yo is not suing
Kelly but only the promoter. Ne-Yo may think blaming the situation on R.
Kelly will improve his chances of collecting from the promoter, but if he
does, he is sadly mistaken. Anyone remotely familiar with R. Kelly knows he
is confident enough in his own abilities to be happy to share the stage
with enormously talented people -- the more talented, the better."
