R. Kelly sued over gig confusion

R. Kelly has found himself in another legal spat with a promoter who has accused the R&B star of pulling out of a show and not returning his full deposit.

Darryl Austin claims he handed over $100,000 (GBP66,700) to Kelly's aides in January (15) after agreeing terms for a gig in Dallas, Texas in April (15), but according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.com, the singer's representatives had no idea about the show when Austin called them in February (15).

The promoter demanded his deposit back, but it was $30,000 (GBP20,000).

Austin wants Kelly to either play the show or pay back the deposit.
