Chicago-based R&B singer R. Kelly is hospitalized for a burst appendix after performing at a Super Bowl party in Miami. The âDown Lowâ singer remains at the Miami hospital Wednesday, and will miss a court hearing in Chicago as a result, according to his lawyer. His lawyer also states that he was operated on the same day and he is in good condition. Cook County prosecutors have charged Kelly, 40, with 14 counts of child pornography in 2002 for allegedly videotaping himself having sex with an underage girl. Under a ruling by Judge Gaughan, Kelly is legally allowed to travel out-of-state. Prosecutors were informed he would miss the court appearance on Tuesday.
