R. Kelly Undergoes Emergency Throat Surgery

R. Kelly

R. Kelly has been forced to take a break from touring as he undergoes emergency throat surgery.

“R&B superstar R. Kelly will be laid up for an indefinite amount of time after undergoing an emergency procedure at Northwestern Memorial Hospital yesterday to drain an abscess on one of his tonsils,” stated his rep.

The 44-year-old entertainer had visited a throat specialist after complaining of severe throat pain. After a preliminary exam, he was rushed to Northwestern Memorial for the procedure.

It is not known when Kelly, who recently wrapped the U.S. leg of his worldwide “Love Letter” tour, will return to the stage. He had to cancel a show scheduled for Friday at the Reggae Sumfest festival in Jamaica.

“I’d like to thank everybody for their love, concern and support. I WILL BE BACK!” tweeted Kellz.
