R. Kelly was scheduled to perform his “Love Letter Cruise” before more than 2,600 fans sailing from Miami for five nights in October. However Kelly claims the cruise’s promoter, Concerts Cruise LLC fell through on their end and did not pay him.
Kelly was scheduled to headline two concerts and perform at other events, but looks that he will not be able to “Share his Love” with the big crowd. When he did not get paid, he shipwrecked the plans and his publicist states, “Concerts Cruise LLC has been unable to meet its financial obligations to a scheduled cruise with featured performer R. Kelly and will therefore have to cancel this cruise. R. Kelly had been looking forward to the cruise and was ready, willing and able to perform for fans. He is sorry for any disappointment but plans to see his fans very soon on a U.S. tour. Ticket holders should contact Concerts Cruise LLC to handle refunds.”
The cruise was set to take sail to Grand Turks; Nassau, Bahamas; and Half Moon Cay, a private island in the Bahamas owned by Carnival Cruise Lines. The costs for each guest started at $1,499 per person.
Talk about a ship that does not sail. Concert Cruises LLC have emailed ticket holders they will be refunded their money and have reportedly deleted their Facebook and Twitter accounts, and are unavailable for comment.
