R. Kelly out as performer at the inaugural Fashion Meets Music Festival in Columbus

By Malcolm Abram Published: July 29, 2014

Well, apparently there are enough folks in Columbus familiar with R. Kelly's creepy history to get him ousted as one of the performers on the Fashion Meets Music Festival happening Friday, August 29-31.

Without Kelly that leaves O.A.R., Rusko, Michelle Williams (of Destiny’s Child), Paper Diamond, and Destructo as the festival's headlining acts. 

I've never been a fan of "Kells" even before I found out he married his then 15 year old protege Aaliyah (her R. Kelly written and produced debut album was called "Age Ain't Nothin' But A Number"...Ewwwwwww!) and before his penchant for young ladies became common knowledge. I'm glad it still bothers some people.

In 2012, The LoConti family donated the Agora to the non-profit MidTown Cleveland to become part of a new development.
