In January this year, Ne-Yo was suing mad after he was suddenly cut off as the supporting act of Kelly's November tour while in fact he already emptied his agenda especially for the commitment.

Based on the decision made by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Malcolm Mackey, Rowe Entertainment Inc. will now have to pay the stated amount to Ne-Yo and his touring company. Kelly meanwhile, is not mentioned in the lawsuit.

Ne-Yo is set to drop his third studio album "" on September 16.
