Alleged R. Kelly Impersonator Dupes Fans During Recent Concert

R. Kelly may want to consider recording a remix to his 1998 hit, "When a Woman's Fed Up," and title it "When A Fan's Fed Up."

Thanks to an alleged impostor, angry fans in Louisiana are demanding a $150 refund for a concert that was scheduled to take place on October 26 at the Monroe Civic Center. To their dismay the event, which was advertised as a promotional party for the singer’s forthcoming album “Black Panties,” reportedly featured a live performance by a R. Kelly impersonator, according to one concert goer.

“It was an impersonator on stage impersonating R. Kelly that may have sung every bit of four minutes, not even a complete five. And he did not even sing. He lip sung,“ the anonymous fan recalled to CBS affiliate, KNOE News. “We was scammed because 10 o'clock we were there, no R. Kelly. 11 o'clock no R. Kelly, 12 o'clock no R. Kelly, 12:45 no R. Kelly. 1 o'clock here comes an impersonator."

Despite fans lashing out on social media about the alleged fraudulent performance, a representative for the Grammy Award-winner reached out to Pitch Fork claiming that he was at the event, and was only scheduled for an “appearance” not an actual performance.
