Ne-Yo Richer After Dropped From R. Kelly's Tour
Judge favored Ne-Yo in the case involving him and his fellow R&B singer R. Kelly. A concert promoter was ordered by the court to pay Ne-Yo an amount of $700,320 in compensation of the damages done after the singer was yanked out of Kelly's "Double Up" tour.
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. Ne-Yo claimed that he was dropped because he was thought overshadowing the performance of the main act, namely R. Kelly. Ne-Yo reportedly was only given $50,000 for the two performances that he did and demanded the remaining contractual number of $735,000.
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 "Year of the Gentleman" on September 16.
