New R. Kelly Lawsuit, Singer Sues LA Club Promoters

R. Kelly is yet again involved in a legal battle this week. According to a lawsuit filed on Friday, Kelly is suing two club promoters for allegedly using his name without permission. In the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior court, Toi Crawford and Shane Mooney, promoters at Sugar Night Club in Hollywood were charged with violation of statutory right of publicity, common law of publicity, unfair competition law and false endorsement after they allegedly promoted an event to be hosted by R.Kelly – an event the R&B singer knew nothing about. According to TMZ, the 14-page complaint states that R.Kelly has suffered irreparable harm and damage due to this event. The suit also stems from flyers that were allegedly made with Kelly’s name in order to generate a larger audience. In related news, the R&B singer/songwriter is set to release his next album “12 Play” this fall despite a series of leaked tracks that surfaced online in recent weeks.
