R. Kelly will be taking a break from performing and recording for a while. Last week he canceled one of his tour dates due to illness…which now we know was extremely serious.

After complaining of throat pain he was rushed to the hospital and doctors found a growth on one of his tonsils. R. Kelly had surgery today and is resting at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

His publicist All Mayer, says R. Kelly will be “laid up indefinitely”

We are wishing you a speedy recover R.!
