Apparently, awaiting trial for criminal sexual abuse charges isn’t enough to stop R.Kelly fans from paying their hard earned money to see him in person. On Saturday, the singer made an appearance at Dirty South Lounge in Springfield, Illinois and was paid an undisclosed amount to hang out and mingle with the partygoers.

Before the appearance, Kelly took to social to beg the media to take it easy on him for hitting the club and making money the only way he knows how.

“I got an event to do tonight, and I want the media to just take it easy on me, man. This is how I gotta get paid now for right now. So I gotta go do this event, and it’s a party, so when you see me in the club with a couple of drinks in my hand, and chilling — please, take it easy yall.”

This marks one of Kelly’s first public appearances since his explosive, viral interview with Gayle King. He’s still currently under investigation regarding the criminal sexual abuse charges involving underage girls.
